I'm not familiar with the species and it's really hard to identify any features. Are you able to provide pictures with detail? Also date and location are helpful.

Yes the one with the wing (I broke one of by accident but she is fertile) and there is a chance it is a winter ant but I’m not sure.

Sorry I should've also asked for measurements and when you caught her last time.

I don’t have ruler that I know of but compared her size to a worker of a starting Tetramorium Immigrans worker and she is barely bigger than the workers.

A small queen then, likely about 4mm. Unfortunately there are still dozens of genera to choose from given this information. We need clear detailed photos (preferably top, side, and front profile shots) and a date and location of the capture for an accurate ID.
