Thnx after looking up some of those species i think she may be a species of notoncus. It would be great if you could narrow it down for me.

I have an ID guide for Notoncus workers, but I need a really zoomed in picture for me to see. Have you ever seen this species of workers outside? Here is the link to the guide and a diagram that can help you if you want to do it yourself, if not is there any way you can get a closer picture of your workers?
