Hi Everyone,

Please help me to identify this queen. Caught her few days back and she has laid a few eggs so far.

Was not able to attach the images due to file size. Please find the images here at my Google Drive folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1pO1y2iqANXYPXriZAhuPHs2N3V-Fx8T1?usp=sharing

Thanks in advance!

hi friend that is a carpenter ant Camponotus sp. but as there are so many black one's i'm not sure which of the Camponotus it is, where abouts did you catch her?
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

Thank you for your advice my friend.

It actually flew into my room. I live in Singapore, a tropical country.
