i found a queen no doubt and it is in the Myrmicinae family. she is about 6mm long and was found on the pavement in the middle of a storm. Found with no wings. Also is she semi-claustral or fully?

Semi-claustral, why you see these summer and fall-flying queens in the spring, foraging for their brood.
