Hi there
I recently caught a queen ant and it has shed its wings. The queen ant is about 1.3 cm in length. However, I cannot identify its species. Will be grateful for any help in identifying its species. Thanks!Image

Definitely Camponotus, but not sure on the exact species.

Thanks so much!
I also have a few other queen ants which I don't know their species.
ImageImageI am guessing that this is a Odontoponera genus queen ant.
ImageI also have a colony of ants which I thought was camponotus species. But I have noticed two dots on their abdomen close to the waist. If you look carefully at the photo above you should able to see it on the worker ants.
Thanks!
