dear pez1077

you should probably put a photo and sizing so that we know what species it is. or if you know what it looks like it maybe a clear description of its characteristics.

Hi everyone! I just caught a queen any and would appreciate some help with identification. She is a rusty brown color and about 1cm long, not including her antennae. Caught in the west side, central Nevada. Mahalo pleanty for the help!

You should make your own post so it’s easier for people to see rather than replying to someone else’s post.

Looks like you have there Solenopsis invicta (RED IMPORTED FIRE ANT). I can’t be sure though because I don’t have any experience with this species so you will need a second opinion.

Actually it looks too small to be a solenopsis invicta queen. Looks more like a solenopsis invicta major, but the thorax does look like it is a queen so I have no idea. This is why I don’t ID queens lol.

Could be Myrmica Rubra? European fire ant. Too early for them to be flying though.
