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

Founding queens:

Camponotus hyatti/sayi

Temnothorax nevadensis

Brachymyrmex patagonicus

Pheidole navigans

Solenopsis sp. 1

Solenopsis sp.2

Monomorium cf. minimum.

Brachymyrmex are night fliers, but she could be Nylanderia.
