Hello guys !

Today I found two queens of the genus lasius under a stone and they were together.
I put them together in a test tube, and they started to help, but, I thought it better to separate them, after doing that, they tried crazy to escape from the test tube
They have yellow legs [it does not look good in the pictures] and a small head , and also big gaster

Here are some pictures :

formica cunicularia
tetramorium sp x2
myrmica sp (founding)

My dream species -- Polyergus rufescens

Hello !

I found them in a solenopsis fugax nest.
Because their gaster is yellow and legs the same, i say it's lasius flavus
But are there any other ideas?
