I have caught this ant, first one i have ever caught. I believe it to be a queen (not sure). If it is a queen, can you tell me what type, i have my suspicion. Caught August 15, 2019. In Azle, Texas

Wow! That is a beautiful specimen! I wonder what you expect her to be? https://antwiki.org/wiki/United_States That link should help you either confirm or deny your suspicions...

When it comes to posting pictures, I would recommend using an imgur.com account. It is free, easy to use and doesn't have a watermark. When you are typing your next message, use the picture button (sun over the mountain) and place the direct link in between the 2 tags. That allows you to include the picture in your post. It should look like [ img] link [ /img] but without the extra spaces between the brackets.

Hi,

It is possible that she is a solenopsis geminata. I hope I'm right, but it looks really close.
