POSSIBLE PLAGIOLEPIS ALLUADI

I had a previous post farther down the forum but I didn't get a response on it. I've spent the last three days trying to figure out what kind of ants these are, and I think I may have figured it out.
I believe they might be Plagiolepis alluaudi, but they could just be of the Plagiolepis genus.

Hopefully you guys can help confirm this,

Plagiolepis appear to be mainly from Europe, China, Australasia regions. Very unlikely to be in Florida.

From what I understand they travel and spread in potted plants. I'm seriously struggling to figure out what these are, and this is the best option so far. If you have an idea please let me know :)
