Queen ID - Caught in Belo Horizonte - Brazil - october 07

Hey guys,

I was wondering if you fine folk could help me ID the genus of this queen. The fact she still has her wings does not help me see many of her details. Queen is about 11mm long and can't seem to climb glass or plastic. I'm worried she might be semi claustral.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks! I imagined she might be a Pachycondyla, I made her a small outworld with an attached test tube setup and gave her a drop of honey and a small piece of insect. So far she didn't seem to eat or break off her wings, if by tomorrow this has not changed, I will try some fruit. Any advice? I'm just beginning in this
