Quiz Me!

Alright, so I THINK I've learned how to differientiate parasitic Lasius queens, (Thanks Batspiderfish :D) but I need to see if I can do so without someone identifying it for me. So send pictures of any of these Lasius species without telling me what species it actually is. I will name the species and you will tell me if I was right or wrong:

-claviger
-latipes
-interjectus
-murphyi
-subumbratus
-umbratus
-speculiventris

P.S. Remember to send only queens, preferably dealates. Thank you! :D

Haha! That doesn't follow the criteria!

I guess this is extra credit.

But it does! It's a parasite and Lasius. From antwiki. I'll tell you the species in another thread or private message.
