Queen Ant Found in Pennsylvania May 25th

I need help identifying a queen ant I found!

I am new to ant keeping and have been searching for a queen ant for some time. Last week I was outside around 6:00 when something landed on my arm. I brushed the object off and didn't think much of it. But then I looked down and behold, a queen ant! I immediately ran to get a test tube and placed her inside. It has been around a week and she has broken off her wings and started to lay eggs.

I believe that the queen is a Camponotus ant but I was hoping someone could confirm this and maybe clarify the specific species. Below I have attached a picture of the queen.


Thanks in advance!
