Picture two - Bottom side: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_IP5zcx-8DjVlN2T3RFSmVkS2EyMktibkxtekFmMTE5Y1R3
Picture three - Top side: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_IP5zcx-8DjSzdTMXpxWVVvYkdIbXZTcVBrYkVTLVJUYm9B

I'd like to mention i found in my bathroom a bunch of small dead male ants so i think there might have been flights in there :shock: she was in my sink when i found her. An ID would be very helpful!

Looks like either a male ant or a Nylanderia social parasite. Hard to tell from the pictures.
