What Queen is This?

I just caught this Queen on April 26th and I live in California. I believe it to be a camponotus pennsylvanicus Queen, but I would really appreciate a more experienced opinion. Here are some pictures I got of her.

2 weeks ago I caught three Liometopum occidentale queens that all have brood now. I hear they grow quite fast, and I’ve been looking into ant nests for them.

Caring for Liometopum occidentale

Hello, I'm a first-time ant keeper. 2 weeks ago I caught 3 Liometopum occidentale queens that have all laid eggs.
