This ID request is a good bit late, admittedly, but I was out of town and had no access to the photos of the queen until I recently got back. Anyway! She was caught in mid-80 degree weather late afternoon in a small town area, and is about 9-10mm.

Apologies for the image quality. I really need to get a new camera =P

What month was she caught in? I would like to say she is lasius neoniger
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger

Lasius sp. Individual Lasius species can be hard to identify by the queens alone. You might have to wait until workers arrive for a more accurate I.D.
