Queen ID Please

Hi there, this is my very first queen, it landed on my leg, I put it in this tupperware.

before I could get it into a test tube, it ended up laying a dozen or more eggs in the tupperware after only like 4 hours in the tupperware.

I live in Northern Virginia.

It is about 10-12mm

I think its a Camponotus Subbarbatus looks like mine.
Founding Camponotus Pennsylvanicus X 2.
Keeping Camponotus Subbarbatus X1.
