The measurements seem a little off.

The first worker is Formica,

Worker two is Formica pallidefulva.

Worker three is Camponotus,
And after I just learned to tell Formica from Camponotus :lol: That's embarrassing. :oops:

Paratrechina longicornis should be present everywhere, but as far as I know they are the only species capable of double cloning.

Re: I found ant colonies and I need help to identify them

8-10mm is not what I would consider tiny. :lol: I'll have to look up some better keys when I get home in a few weeks. Looking through lists of genera for possible candidates is tiring on my phone. In the meantime, do try to get detailed photos Here's a guide for getting great photos. http://forum.An...

Re: Help identifying queen

Can you get some high focus shots of her head with better lighting? There are a lot of small details there that can help narrow it down.
