Caught this queen a couple days ago underneath a stone slab in my backyard. I introduced 5 workers and 3 larva and some eggs from my A. rudis colony and they gathered around the queen right away. They are covering her so I couldn't get a good shot of her colorfulness. She is a deep red and has a nice set of spines.
