That is a queen, but no clue what it is.

It’s a social parasite queen. Looks like Lasius claviger.
Tetramorium immigrans * Lasius Neoniger * Lasius Claviger * Messor Aciculatus * Myrmica Rubra * Camponotus Novaeboracensis * Camponotus Turkastanus * Pheidole Pallidula

Social parasites are hard to keep. Unless you have a colony for it, you will probably not be able to keep it, because it needs to enter a colony to survive.
