Re: Queen Ants Identification Help

Bit hard to tell from these pictures and without measurements... but i'm guessing Formica sp. I have never measured an ant before. Could you explain the process so I dont stess them out too much?

Re: ID 2 queens - 9/8/2018 Netherlands

Formica requires photographs of the gaster showing off hair coverage of each tergite. Myrmica generally requires microscopic examination, so you will almost never get an ID through photographs over the internet. That's alright, i'm already happy i got the genera right ;) I might attempt another pic...

Re: ID 2 queens - 9/8/2018 Netherlands

Can i assume from the overwhelming lack of replies that i was right in my ID's? :lol: I would say so. The second is identical to the two Myrmica Rubra queens I have. (Remember that Myrmica Rubra is semi-claustral.) Thanks! Yes i have her test tube in a container that functions as an outworld so she...

Re: Can anyone confirm the genus and/or species of these 3 ant queens?

I am far from proficient at IDing but to me it looks like:
Queen 1: Tetramorium sp.
Queen 2: Lasius sp.
Queen 3: Formica sp.

Re: Queen ants caught end of June, Belguim/Antwerp ~LM

Looks like a Lasius sp. to me. Possibly L. niger but can't be sure on that

Re: Queen ant identification w/pictures

Camponotus pennsylvanicus is an american species and not likely to be found in Sweden.
My guess would actually be a Formica sp. especially when looking at the workers in the first pic.
