I really don't know a thing about this species, I just mention it so others can see the picture later to help you.
I would say if you can try get better pics because its hard to see what is this.

The only species of vampire ants that can be found in your area is Stigmatomma pallipes, but it might be something else.

Stigmatomma pallipes. These are quite rare, so nice find! Is there a queen by any chance?
