Looks like Cautolasius sp. to me, probably flavus.

Thanks for all the suggestions and help you guys. It's becoming so hard to not peek to see if she's laid any eggs yet.

Also, I just noticed that the lasius hybrid nests are now in stock, I'm considering getting one for when she does start producing workers, but I noticed it said "Not suitable for large/medium species whose queen or workers exceeds 4mm in length or girth."

Mine is 9mm long, and if I had to estimate I think her workers were about 4-5mm themselves. Is this a typo or is she too big? Are there breeds that have queens smaller than 4mm? I dunno, seems a little odd to me is all.
