Here is all the info I have with a link to some photos of the Queen's. Any help would be highly appreciated.

North America, Jacksonville Florida
Elevation - 20 ft above sea level
Collected on clay tennis courts surrounded by woody area with high weeds and brush in late September. First gen workers finally emerged a few weeks ago.
Red in color. Seems to have a slightly darker gaster
Legs are slightly lighter in color
They have a matte sheen to them
Queens are around 10 to 12 millimeters long

May be some solenopsis species, but don't take my word for it. :D
Attempting: Odontomachus (possibly Brunneus) x1
