I found 2 of these queens wondering around while I was at Whitney Canyon Park Sunday night. I am very excited to keep this species because of how big they are.

Update 5-16-21

The most recent queen I caught ended up being infertile and died without laying any eggs. The other queens are doing great and have pupae and larvae.

One of the queens got its first worker. The other queen just has 4 pupae and a few other brood pieces. Also I am aware of the name change of quercicola to laevigatus & laevigatus to laevissimus but there is no way I'm actually gonna call them their new name.
