tl;dr - Is this even a queen? To me the head seems a bit too small and is probably a male

First winged ant found outside of the house in over 3 months of walking 200+km with test tubes in pocket. We've not had any rain recently, which is what I'm desperately waiting for.. but hopeful this one is a queen.

It is, I can't tell what. Try to get some better close up pictures if you can.

I keep Aphaenogaster and Brachymyrmex/Tapinoma (unknown) currently when it comes to strong colonies.
