What time of day did you spot her, and what kind of setting? Desert trail? Or more greenery? I've been looking, but I keep coming up empty handed.

A person where I work found a winged pogonomymex queen in north Reno. I thought those flew much later in the year. Otherwise, I'm having no luck finding queens above ground.

Just found a pavement ant (tetramorium caespitum) queen in Reno! Walking around on the ground, mid day in the shade. First find of the year!
