I've caught a brown queen at sidewalk & grass in a college campus, Wheaton, Illinois.
The size is approximately 1.2cm.
I have not still figured out the best way to embed pictures in the forum.
So please bare with me to post them in google photo.

Thank you both of you.
I thought also Formica sp. which I recently caught a winged one, but this time the color looks more brownish and slightly bigger.
I would like to have a confirmation from batspiderfish!!

Yup, a species of Formica from the pallidefulva group.
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.
