Camponotus and Crematogaster, I think.

I am currently raising two small colonies of ants and I am not entirely sure what species they are. Included is a link to a Google Drive folder containing some pictures. The first three pictures I believe are the species Camponotus Castaneus and the second three I have been told are a species of Crematogaster. Thank you for looking at my request!

At least, the genus are right : Camponotus for the first, Crematogaster for the second. But I don't know the specie.

I am now completely sure that the first is the species Camponatus Castaneus. The second may be the species crematogaster cerasi. What do you guys think?

The first could also be Camponotus americanus. As for the Crematogaster queen, I'm not sure what species :| :roll:
