Help with identifying the species your ants

I found this ant while walking through the backyard and I noticed that it was unusually long for an ant. I can't tell if it's a male or not, and I'm really confused about what it is if it is even an ant at all. It's about five millimeters long.
Ponera pennsylvanica queen. These are semi-claustral and otherwise difficult to keep. Read up on journals and external resources.
