I guess the first species is pheidole or Temnothorax
Keeping:
1 Odontomachus simillimus colony
1 Odontoponera queen
1 Camponotus parius colony
1 Camponotus sp colony
1 Camponotus irritans colony
Are you amazed? :D

Hi there! What an awesome catch :)
The ants in the first two photos are Pheidole sp. It looks to me like a small Pheidole desertorum colony with a few major workers.
The second queen is a Lasius neoniger queen
The third long queen with a striped gaster loos like Brachymyrmex depilis to me.
The last 4th queen is either Pheidole sp or Temnothorax sp :?:

I wish these ants lived here in Europe, because they look awesome :roll:
Also known as Ants_Netherlands16

Keeper of:
Lasius niger, flavus, lasioides
Myrmica sp.
Messor barbarus & Messor sp.
Crematogaster scutellaris
Camponotus aethiops, ligniperdus
Solenopsis fugax
Temnothorax nylanderi :D

The last queen is a Solenopsis invicta i think. I managed to catch the second queen from the wild pheidole colony yesterday.
