Queen Identification Help

Hey everyone, its been a while. (thanks for deleting me J/K)


I need a little help with this one. I can usually figure out the genus on my own, however this one is giving me problems.


I'm thinking camponotus americanus but she seems small for a Camponotus queen. I caught her about a week ago in southern Oklahoma in my kitchen. She has laid about 10-15 tiny eggs.


Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks in advance.


PS sorry for the quality, size restrictions make it hard to post HD pics.
