I just recently caught a queen ant in a test tube setup and I was wondering if this queen is in fact a queen ant, And if so, What Species is it?

And measurement
Let us remember that even though ants are wonderful creatures, even more magnificent is their creator 😌

I need help identifying what species queen this is. She is 8 mm long. I caught her on a rainy day on June 8, 2018. At 9:00 on a rainy day.

Jumping in as well, caught a queen in my room. All I know is that it does NOT look like a Solenopsis genera.

Forgive the crap pic, only have the cam on my smartphone and she isn't very big (8mm at most, red & black with a red fading to black gaster).

What's throwing me off is that she has a squarish head.

I found what I believe to be an ant queen of the potentially Camponotus species, but I need help confirming that. She is between 15 to 20 mm long and I found her 2 nights ago on June 19th. Here are some pictures, I'd appreciate any input you have, thanks.
