You should post the photos to a photo website like imgur or photobucket and share them here.

Here is the imgur album, also she is about 8/9mm long.
I agree with Batspiderfish, looks like Lasius.

Yep it is a tetramorium and do you know how I can trade a tetramorium queen
I don't. Our trade was arranged through the AntsCanada GAN. You could check there to see if there are any GAN farmers for your country and try trading through them.

Re: ID Please: Caught June 21, 2018 Houston, TX

Hmmm....couple different opinions here. Is solenopsis invicta clausteral? Yes, both Tetramorium and Solenopsis Invicta are fully claustral. Is the ant black or dark red. That's honestly going to be the biggest telltale. Solenopsis Invicta are red with black tipped gasters. But honestly, I would tru...

Yeah, I'm not sure on this one. Pictures are a bit blurry and I'm not as familiar with ants in Spain so nothing is standing out to me. Maybe someone else will be of more help on this one.

Re: Genus/Species Identification. Prenolepis Imparis? Camponotus Castaneus? With photos. Severn, MD, US

Yes, these options are all from the pallidefulva species group of Formica. Ants from this group also vary pretty wildly in coloration at ranges farther North than Maryland. You are also right that workers are easier to identify. I appreciate all the help so far. I'll just hold off until she has wor...

This is Solenopsis invicta.
Interesting. That was definitely a mistake on my part. I'm not as familiar with Solenopsis species because they're not very common where I live. Learning more every day.

Re: help to identify queen ant

It would be something from France. Most of the time, Lasius identification is moderately difficult, since you need enough magnification to see the hairs on the antennal scapes and the teeth on the mandibles, at least. Just put a "cf." between the genus and species whenever you find what you think i...

Can you post photos. Don't have access to google drive. You can use imgur or photo bucket. Just post the link or embed the photo using the tutorial on the main forum page.
