Hey, finally have some free time with fall break to take some photos! I recently came across two different species of queens having their nuptial flights, so ill make a second post for the other one in a little bit. I'm fairly certain this queen is a Stenamma sp., possibly S. brevicorne? The queen is slightly larger than 4.5 mm, and she was found in the evening during daylight hours on October 8th. Here's some photos:

This must be a species of Myrmica. No stenamma has large propodeal spines like that.
