Can a semi-claustrial queen restart?

I was looking for queens and I tipped over a log and found some large ponerine ants. I caught one. Now looking at it again it looked like a queen.
Will a semi-claustrial queen restart or not. I will add a testube in an outworld.

I will post an id thread later.

Re: What's happening?

Phiedole will have satellite nest and because they have multiple queens they will move some into the satellite nest. Just give it time.

Re: Only one worker and moving

It can be normal for just one worker. Place a piece of drinking straw through the cotton on the end of the tube and place it in an outworld. Feed the colony in there. Raise the colony in the testube
