How long on average does it take for a Ponera or similar at species Niantic to eclose?

Not many people have kept Ponera, and they can be a difficult genus to found, so I have no answers.

One of my Ponera queens made it past the pupal stage (she only raised one larva), but it turned out to be a male. :cry:
