There is a way to post pictures using links to image sites. Also what color is it?

I live in PA and the only ones I could find with a "brown striped rear" is Forelius pruinosus,Colobopsis impressa and Lasius alienus

https://www.antsylvania.com/product-page/lasius-alienus is a good place to find out what ant species are around here or potentially buy some.
