Queen 1: Lasius sp.
Queen 2: Nylanderia sp.
Queen 3: Pheidole sp.
Queen 4: Pheidole sp.
Ergatogyne 5: Monomorium sp.

The last one is an intermediate form between queen and worker. It could be a naturally occurring phenomenon from any Monomorium species, but there is one, M. ergatogyna which seems to be named after this feature. I would not pin the ID on that fact alone, though.
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.
