I just recently caught a queen ant in a test tube setup and I was wondering if this queen is in fact a queen ant, And if so, What Species is it?

And measurement
Let us remember that even though ants are wonderful creatures, even more magnificent is their creator 😌

I need help identifying what species queen this is. She is 8 mm long. I caught her on a rainy day on June 8, 2018. At 9:00 on a rainy day.

Jumping in as well, caught a queen in my room. All I know is that it does NOT look like a Solenopsis genera.

Forgive the crap pic, only have the cam on my smartphone and she isn't very big (8mm at most, red & black with a red fading to black gaster).

What's throwing me off is that she has a squarish head.

I found what I believe to be an ant queen of the potentially Camponotus species, but I need help confirming that. She is between 15 to 20 mm long and I found her 2 nights ago on June 19th. Here are some pictures, I'd appreciate any input you have, thanks.

All of you should just start your own post and actually embed the pictures in your post. This is why you haven't had anyone give you an answer. If you need to know how to post a picture there is a stickied post on how to do so.

I think I should also say I need help with the identification of my 4 ants but haha I already made a post for that with 3 hopefully good enough pictures.
Doing some proper research is the best way to start an antcolony. After the research you can still go and fetsh a colony from one of your local GAN-Farmers.

Founding colonies:
10 - Lasius Niger Colony
1 - Messor Barbarus
