This would definitely be one of those native species that nobody on the continent is keeping. :)

Yep. :) If possible, I plan to get multiple queens, as they are a genus that can exhibit high polygny.

There are few records for nuptial flights of this genus, but they seem to have a similar schedule to Camponotus and Lasius interjectus (May and June, sometimes August.) They like to inhabit wetlands.
