Run ansible tasks based on machine names in a group

I want to create symlinks for a file using ansible only when I have a certain machine hostname. I know inventory_hostname will give me the hostname, but can I do something like: when: inventory_hostname in group['machines'] so I can run this with all machines in that group? Then, I want to symlink based on name of machine. So:

file:
    src: {{ ansible_hostname }}.png
    dest: anything.png
