Hard to tell what species she is from the photos. How long is she in mm? She is definitely a queen.
My current colonies:
The miniature military(formica neogagates)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi
the blazing nation(Myrmica alaskensis)

Looks like a lasius sp. Have a look at antmaps.org they can show you what species of lasius live in your area.
My current colonies:
The miniature military(formica neogagates)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi

Yeah sorry I figured it out so I know what species it is it’s lasius nearcticus
But I’m super exited and nervous because not much is known on it so yeeess. There is discovery’s to be made! But also there almost nothing about it so I’ll just have to figure things. So out watch out I’m starting my first journal!
