She is about 10mm long. The picture with mm is here: http://imgur.com/gallery/TOPNs4P
Can you tell me how you know she is not parasitic nor claustral?
Sorry. I wasn't paying attention to details in the photo other than the ant (better to include measurements in the text). She is claustral, which means she will need no special care until her workers eclose.
Semi-claustral and parasitic ants are almost always slimmer. I would recognize if she were either of those.
I found another one looking exactly like the first one! Only a bit bigger. She is aprox. 13mm i think. (I will measure her when i can) I'm from southwest slovenia. I found her in a suburban area on a balcony. Here are more pics: http://imgur.com/gallery/5LKx2ST

OMG! YAYAYAY! My Camponotus subbarbatus has laid its FIRST egg! I checked it right now and there is a tiny white egg!!! I may just give some Updates every once in a while. (I know, I should really be more patient and wait to check on her.)
