Queen ID

I just caught a queen in her claustral cell. She had no eggs (or hidded them well). She is quite big, I believe 15 mm.
Here is a picture of her, I believe it is some kind of camponotus but I am not sure.

I forgot to mention that I live in Chennai, India and I found out Camponotus sansabeanus only live in America
