I caught this queen earlier this year I don't remember the date but she laid some eggs earlier this month and I would like an ID.

Every ID request requires measurements, as per the rules. Videos will also get you poor results, not the least of which because the image quality is poorer than a photograph.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Sorry, She is 8mm long, and I caught her in San Rafael.

Looks to be Aphaenogaster.
