Nice catch! :mrgreen:

How are you going to hydrate her?

I would suggest you to put some water in the tube, blocking with cotton the water and then the queen in the middle, closing the tube with another cotton.
There are a bunch of how to do a "test tube setup for queen ants" in youtube.

Hello! Most likely it is Camponotus

Odontomachus

She does look like a camponotus. But the connection between the abdomen and thorax is a little weird. That part confuses me...

Every ID request also requires a measurement in mm.

If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

the rules just say Body length in mm and other visual or behavioral characteristics you can provide can give us a good idea as to what species she is, if she looks like she can be several different potential species.
