There are no genital claspers, so this is a queen. Possibly Paratrechina longicornis, but there is only one good picture and the measurement doesn't seem accurate.
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.
