Can you get a better image of the queen so we can identify her?

Either Camponotus / Iridomyrmex.
Ah I hadn't thought of Iridomyrmex. Is it ok to leave her in the container?
Also I know Camponotus doesn't need feeding but what about Iridomyrmex?

Did you use the AntsCanada shop test tubes? I ask because im keen on starting a myrmecia colony when i can. Keep ...
