[IMPORTANT] Ant Queen Identification

Recently I made a post about my ant queen species I got the answer of formica rufibarbis. However, on another forum I asked the same question and someone said formica rufa. It is very important for me to know which ant queen this is as the rufa species is a parasitic ant so can someone please tell me if my ant queen is formica rufa or formica rufibarbis.

I have to say that looks very similar to the one I caught...someone identified mine as camponotus modoc...

Mine has a large black body with red legs.
1 homo sapiens colony 1 queen 1 king 1 baby born 5/30/18
1 c. Modoc queen ( found 6/18/18)
1 c. Modoc queen ( found 6/19/18)
1 c. Noveboracensis queen ( found 6/19/18)
1 c. Noveboracensis queen (found 6/19/18) (eggs 6/23/18)

I forgot to say she is about 1 cm in length
And it is camponotus modoc since she is not mostly black
