Natural History: Long trails of F. prociliata workers interconnected several different, well-populated, thatched mounds at the Lamoni, Iowa site where I found this ant, a couple of miles north of the Missouri line. The mounds had twiggy thatch, and were similar in appearance to mounds of F. obscuripes. When disturbed, workers were quite aggressive, swarming over my hands and spraying quantities of pungent formic acid. Numerous workers were also seen tending aphids on nearby prairie willows Salix humilis. The smooth, reddish queens, with flattened, curly golden hairs are reputed to be temporary social parasites of other Formica, with subsericea, pallidefulva the most likely candidates in the habitat where I observed them.
