I found this queen today, but I’m wondering if she is a Formica pallidelfulva like the other queen I caught they look similar, but also different. Here’s a picture, could somebody ID:Image
x1 Camponotus subbarbatus
x1 Camponotus nearcticus
x2 Tetramorium immigrans
x1 Formica pallidelfulva
x1 Formica neogagates
x1 Crematogaster cf. cerasi
x1 Lasius cf. alienus/flavus

Founded colonies:
x1 Camponotus castaneus

From the pallidefulva group, but hard to say which species without workers.
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.

She looks darker than an Formica pallidefulva queen but her gaster is tiny!!!!
So i am not sure but my guess is Formica pallidefulva!
