Found my first queen! Genus/species ID help?

I found her on May 22nd in Dallas TX in the middle of a Walmart parking lot at around 8pm. Got her home and put her in a test tube set up and she started laying eggs right away! You can see them in the picture with the measuring tape. She seems to be about 5/16" (8mm) long. Through research I think it could be solenopsis invicta?

Thank you!
