I found these 2 queens within the last couple days, and I was wondering what exact species they were. I'm pretty sure they are both formica of some kind, but I'm not sure.

I was also wondering if the one that is more dark in color is injured/less healthy. I noticed that she is more sluggish and one of the segments of her gaster is kinda sticking out. Should I be concerned or is this okay?

P.S. The one that is more brown has laid a couple eggs
