Re: Crematogaster??

If you think they look like Crematogaster, then they are most likely "fully" claustral. Crematogaster totally exist in your part of the world, but I would wait on pictures.

Re: Caught My First Queen!! Help

Formica sp., from the pallidefulva group. Workers are much easier to ID to the species.

Re: ID need on 2 queens >1cm North Portugal help

The ants in the first series of photos are Camponotus workers.

The "2nd" queen is Colobopsis sp.
They require the same care as Camponotus.

Re: Caught My First Queen!! Help

Pictures need to be uploaded and linked in your post. We also need a location and measurement, as per the rules.

Re: Need second opinion on the identifications on some queens

Yes. It is good to give social parasites food every once in a while.

Re: Need second opinion on the identifications on some queens

Formica sp. from the pallidefulva group, and Lasius umbratus, a social parasite. http://www.formiculture.com/topic/3252-much-ado-about-the-founding-of-lasius-temporary-social-parasites/ Lasius minutus is another possibility for the second queen, but I wouldn't go there unless I knew the measurements...
