Hi Tim, this ant also looks a bit like Technomyrmex, but 5mm sounds a on the big side, so can't be too sure. Cheers, Jon

Thanks for this and the various other identifications Jon. With these smaller ants I'll try and include some type of scale measurement into future images to help identification.
