Caught 3 different species of queens on the 7th. A few Crematogaster, another one I still haven't identified, and this one below, she is 6 - 7mm:

Not great pictures I'm afraid. Sorry. Hopefully a general species identification can be made though.

No idea what she is... I should add she is smaller than the Crematogaster queens.

Thanks,

You should wait until the worker phase before trying to identify Aphaenogaster. They are pretty tricky.
