Help! Ant Identification! 2.0 (Rio de Janeiro - Brazil 25/11/2017)

Hi, ant lovers! The queen has about 12 to 13 mm of length. I caught her at my playground because yesterday a male alate came into my room, so I decided that it could have a chance to see some queens. (there were a lot of them). The location where I caught her is on the title. Please help!! (PS: it was over 8:33 a.m.).

Here's the queen: https://imgur.com/a/gPbCn

Her coloration is very dark. If she is Atta Sp then the procediments to care are the same? Will she vomit the fungi?

Ok, but I'll just let her rest for a week before taking her from the dark and taking a picture.

Look, here there are some new images from her. Another thing I need to ask is that yellow thing over the cotton is normal?

Do they need to be fed during the test tube to grow their fungus?
