I found this queen on Sunday running across the sidewalk at my park. She seems very tiny for a Lasius queen, and I'm not 100% sure of her identification, but this is what I'm sticking with for the time being. Updates coming soon!

Are you sure that it is not Brachymyrmex or Nylanderia?  That is what I would think based on the time, and small size.


Colonies:(Nylanderia vividula, Lasius cf. americanus, B. patagonicus) Founding queens:(Camponotus hyatti/sayi, Temnothorax nevadensis, Pheidole navigans, Solenopsis sp. 1, Solenopsis sp.2, Monomorium cf. minimum, Pogonomyrmex californicus.

 

Ants I would like to acquire soon: Acanthomyops, Lasius brevicornis, Stigmatomma pallipes or oregonense, Camponotus vicinus, Camponotus fragilis, Myrmecocystus navajo, Myrmecocystus semirufus/mimicus, Formica perpilosa, Formica aserva, Formica argentea, Liometopum luctuosum, Manica bradleyi or invidia, Temnothorax nevadensis, and a Myrmica sp

 

Lets pretend that my profile picture is not sideways.

Brachymyrmex are night fliers, but she could be Nylanderia.
