I second this. It looks smaller than any Formica I've ever seen though.

Formica rufa group sp, reminds me of dakotensis because of the shine of the body. She is parasitic and will need host workers.

I'm not sure this is parasitic. Species like Formica perpilosa might not look so different along with F. manni, which may or may not be parasitic.

It is a poor reflection upon our society that we now hope for one that forces everybody to be the same. Humanity is defined by our differences, without them, we would just be monotone blobs. Think of the similarity in the fact that we are different instead of the fact that someone else is evil or "racist" because they are different.

This is most definitely not a parasitic species.  I am looking at the head shape and body shape; the only thing that makes it look remotely parasitic is its coloration.  Dealates from the F. rufa group have skinny gasters, unlike this queen who is evidently prepared to raise her first generation of workers.  This is a fully claustral species from the Formica fusca group.

I agree.
