This is not Formica obscuripes.

Parasitic Formica that look like this tend to be difficult to identify to the species until they have their very first workers. (Not host workers) I may be able to identify the species group however, if I can get a front shot of her clypeus. I presume this ant to be in the sanguinea-group of Formica including Formica aserva, Formica sanguinea, Formica subintegra, Formica rubicunda, etc. You could also identify whether or not she’s in the sanguinea group yourself by taking a look at whether or not she has a clypeal notch.
