Hey guys. Got this queen yesterday and I can’t tell if it’s camponotus or Formica. She has a black abdomen and head and a really dark red thorax with a few black streaks.

Hi, please follow the ID Request template, if you do we may be able to get a proper ID. The template is in the pinned messages, and a photo would help out a lot in identifying the queen, thanks!
