Re: Ant Identificarion

Sorry, It's difficult for us to make an ID without clearer pictures. I don't think any of us are familiar enough with Moroccan ants to produce an adequate guess. I can say, however, that she looks like a fully-claustral species, so she will likely be ok if she lays eggs and you wait for her first wo...

Myrmica sp. No chance on getting an ID past the genus-level, sadly, without examination under a microscope.

Camponotus sp.
Why not C. pennsylvanicus? The photo quality?
No accurate measurement. 1/2" would lie directly between the Myrmentoma and Camponotus subgenera
