Identify Queen Ant | Arizona

I saved this from drowning in my pond, and have kept her ever since. I just need to know if she is semi clausteral or not.

This pic is kind of useless but it's the only pic I have with a male ant with her (already passed, I assumed he mated with her or she finally got fed up and killed him)

That is my ring finger if anyone needs a size guesstimate of the queen.

Will post more pics if needed. However I would like to avoid that to prevent further stressing her out.

Currently at work so will not be able to post more until later today.

I've done a bit of research and I believe it might be some type of camponatus but I'm not entirely sure.

Never mind, I figured it out.

I believe she may be a tetramorium immegrans.

Not sure if she is fertile or not, but I'll eventually release her around monsoon season if it's the latter.
