I caught this queen yesterday (06/04/2018) in a pool.

She is 8-10 millimeters long and has very distinguishing stripes on her gaster.

Has a fairly Tetramoriumy shape. However she seems to be a TAD bit bigger. Below are images of her. Thanks for any help!!!

Looks like Tetramorium immigrans to me, although all the pictures are from the same general angle.
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.
