Re: Ant identification help

I have this small black winged ant, but I don’t know what species it is, and I don’t know if it’s a queen or male it also has a broken wing. (I have no idea how to attach a photo so it would help if someone would help with that). You need to uload your pictures to a website like imgur.com then post...

Re: Three ant queens need ID!

Lasius americanus 1&2 Prenolepis impairs Polygynous myrmica sp. Polygynous Thank you! I had my suspicions about myrmica, but I wasn't sure. But those second ones can't be prenolepis imparis. these buggers are barely 4 millimetres long! :D unless i've found some community of miniatures lol Those tin...

3 Crematogaster queen no 4 Camponotus? queen no 2 Crematogaster queen no 1 Crematogaster queen no sorry :(
Those are all workers :roll:
Ants 1,2 and 3 look like either Tapinoma or Prenolepis to me.
Ant 4 is definitely an orange/yellow Camponotus sp.

Re: Found a queen ant

I just found a queen ant with pure luck leaving my house. This is in the north east part of Wyoming. She is just a little under 2mm I've tried my best to identify it and i believe she is Tapinoma sessile but am honestly unsure. That's 100% a Camponotus sp. queen. You mentioned she's under 2 mm, I t...

Also just wanted to add, this seems like an odd time for this species for a nuptual flight right? Many species fly about 2 months earlie...

Here she is 1.5 weeks on in her test-tube setup with her clutch of recently laid eggs. I collected her f...
