it might also be lasius americanus or argentine ant, but those are just the closest looking i have found. I really have no clue what else to look for. I'd appreciate a much more experienced person to give their opinion. Thanks

5mm queen caught mid-May in NJ. Please help ID

Please help me ID this queen. She was caught in Northern NJ, USA a few days ago (mid-May) along with 3 other queens of the same species in a park. They are all 5mm long (1/5 of an inch) and all of them have laid a few eggs since caught. I am thinking Tapinoma sessile? Thank you! https://i.ibb.co/rM8...
