hi friend, i keep odontoponera transversa which look very similar to the ant you've caught and i can say that you've caught a queen there she has a slightly longer gaster than that of a worker
1x Lasius Niger - early forging stage - 60-100 workers
1x Messor Barbarus - founding stage - <20 workers
1x Camponotus Turkestanus - claustral stage - 1 nanitic + brood
1x Odontoponera Transversa - semi-claustral stage - no eggs
