ID requests should go in the identification center:
http://forum.AntsCanada.com/viewforum.php?f=48

Please review the rules for ID requests, particularly make sure that you include a measurement in millimeters.
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.

You use a measuring tool (i.e. a ruler, with centimeters and 1/10 cm millimeter markers.) Please no pennies. :D

I can tell that she is another Lasius social parasite queen, possibly Lasius claviger.

Ok I'll try. Hard to keep still, and they're in the enclosure now. I might not be able to measure the queens.

What do you think about this species and are their any specialty things they might need above other regular ants. Being a parasite species?
