Aphenogaster rudis

Family: Myrmicinae 

Aphenogaster rudis lives in and around hemlock and pine forests. They forage for seeds, insects, and plant material like pollen. These ants collect seeds for the nutritious elaiosomes, helping to disperse the seeds.

They nest in leaf litter, under rocks, and in rotten logs and stumps. They will often move their nests.
