hi alison, i think this is anonychomyrma rather than iridomyrmex. they can be hard to tell apart, but the fact that they have a nest in a crack in a tree is a very good indicator of anonychomyrma, which are largely arboreal. iridomyrmex almost always make nests in the ground. a similar sighting is below. cheers, jon
