I found her in feytroun, keserwan, Lebanon at the end of summer 2020.
She is about 15mm.
When her test tube dried I attached another prepared test tube, but she never left the dried test tube. I assume she is okay with dry environments.
I hope the the info given is enough.

She looks like a carpenter queen and most queens that are 15mm are carpenter.
My current colonies:
Test_o's colony(camponotus novaeboracensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the shadow ants(formica subaenescens)
The miniature military (formica neogagates)

I have done a lot of research and after getting my first nanitic, I think it is camponotus abrahami. I am waiting for somebody else’s opinion, and thank you for helping. :D
