Queen ant identification

Hello!Last Saturday I captured two queen ants (probably of the same species) and I would like to know what species they are, I have already tried but I am not able to find any that look like enough.

I live in Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands, located is Spain, which is in southern Western Europe.
Here are the pictures:

Tetramorium sp.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Oh, I didn't expected that they were Tetramorium, rather I thought they were Lasius or Camponotus. A lot of thanks ^^
