Tetramorium immigrans ?
I just looked up T. Immigrans. I don't think thats what this is. You can see by the dead ant that they are quite a bit bigger. Can anyone help with this ID?

Ant Queen ID, Oregon, Lasius?

Found this queen in Woodburn, Oregon on August 2nd. She is around 1cm. Found her walking around a parking lot. She crawled into a drain before I could get her, and then crawled back out a bit later. She has a little pile of eggs. ID please. https://i.imgur.com/kpp8ZMq.jpg https://i.imgur.com/rLzcx8G...
