Identification https://imgur.com/a/H0r2a
It is a wild caught colony I found at Maryville.
Please identify it. Thank you in advance! PS: They are about 4-5 mm in length. It has five queens.

Monomorium sp. I think.

I was thinking so, but I didn't want to mess up the ID. Thanks.

I appreciate acting with caution. It is best to give the most general answer or to wait for more details. I wouldn't mind getting a clearer look myself.
