Queen identify plz...

Ok, so I am hoping the pics I have will be good enough being I had to use my cell phone to take them (only camera I have atm) but after doing some research and close inspection with my magnifying glasses (5x & 10x) I am thinking I may have an Aphaenogaster species, possibly Aphaenogaster fulva. They look just alike with the spines on the backs (workers for sure) and same size. Queen is roughly 6-7mm and workers are 3-4mm. I could be wrong tho. Thx for any information guys.

Anything I should know about Aphaenogaster? As in deit or special needs or anything? I think I have done a fair job so far but can always use more information ;)
