No luck for the species. The queen is Myrmica, which are nearly impossible to ID with basic photographs. The Lasius would need much more detail as well.
Knowing it's Myrmica is enough for me for now, thanks :)
She's semi claustral.

Re: Lots of eggs, no larvae

An unfertilized queen will lay eggs and rear them as if they were workers. Only time can tell.

Re: New Zealand queen ID

I cannot tell.. I know on another forum somebody found a queen that looked like that and it survived. Put it in a test tube and see if it moves. If it doesn't in the next few days, it's dead.

Teteramorium almost have more rectangular features if that makes any sense. Can we see more pictures of her? Also a measurement and lo...
