These queens were all caught in Singapore at different times.If you need a better phot/view just feel free to ask :D .Also If you know additional information such as claustral/semi claustral or what food they eat please tell me it would be appreciated :) .Then i can do some research on em. Thanks! In advance. You dont have to Id all 4 If you don't know btw :P

1.This one is kinda weird and I have never seen it before. She's 1.5cm or 150mm long and was caught at 7 P.m. as she flew into my house on 23/6/2016. Mostly black though her abdomen has like bumpy rings on it.It did rain before like 1 hour before she was caught.

2.Im pretty sure this is a Fire ant but Im not 100% sure. She's 0.4-0.5 cm long which is 40-50mm and was caught at 3 P.m. outdoors on a wall on 19/6/2016. She's kinda red/orangey with a pattern on her abdomen.

3.Im hoping this is a Camponatus but I have no idea. She's1.5 cm or 150mm long and was caught at 6 P.m. outdoors under a block of high rise buildings on 23/6/2016.She has like a bright golden yellowy underneath.

Sorry but the first one is a male alate, not a queen.

Second one I think it is a solenopsis geminata queen, which I have one too. :)

Third one should be Camponatus. I have few of those but none of them produce any eggs, sad.

Fourth one is abit too small, not sure what is that.

#2 is for sure Pheidole. I am positive it is not a Solenopsis sp. of any sort.
#3 is most likely Camponotus but I am unsure.

Also, you should look into Formiculture.com The members on that forum are far more active and knowledgeable than the people on this forum. btw I am not affiliated with them in any way.

The 4th one, I think is Brachymyrmex, but.. it could also be Tapinoma or technomyrmex but I doubt it, it's upto you to take a look and guess what it is, since the photo's aren't the best quality. Goodluck
