Ant ID please!

Hi, just caught this ant queen under a tiny rock, did not see any visible eggs or pupae. I live in stockholm/central sweden, so northern europe.

She is about 0.5 cm long

My hopes is that she is an "acorn ant"/ temnothorax

but I leave that up to you if she is or is not. I know she is a semi chlusteral queen (99% sure, seeing her small gaster) also, does her sting hurt on humans?

Thanks!

Those are amazing shots! how did you get them? Also more importantly Myrmica are semi claustral. that means queens of this species need food for development. Have fun ! :D
