You have gotten an answer from the most experienced ant identification person (imo) and most experienced user on this forum. If you think batspiderfish is wrong, then perhaps you should try to get it ID'd at another forum.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger

If you can take better photographs and provide a measurement, then there will be more to work with. The fact that there's more than one petiole means that she's not related to the Lasius you found her with.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
