Re: :pls help me identify this queen

Formica fusca probably does not truly exist in North America. Since this queen has bands of silvery pubescence beyond the first gastral tergite, that would disqualify the nearctic equivolents, Formica subaenescens and Formica accreta (for Western NA).

Re: help to identify queen ant

You could probably get more specific answers if we could see the queen a little better, but at best it seems it will be identified to the genus level.
