Just bought this Camponotus colony from a seller claiming that they're Camponotus maritimus. Is that correct?

Date: June 26, 2019

Location: California Bay Area


Body color is hard to tell; It seems that the nanitics' thoraxes are a slightly brownish color, but very hard to tell because their whole body is very dark. However, I can say that their legs are definitely a brownish color, a lighter shade than the thorax.

Picture attached (just one because it's about the only angle I can get right now)

We need measurememts to get an ID. Using the ID format is needed to make an ID. She does seem like maritimus to me though.
