I am new to ant keeping and I want to figure out what species this is because I want to know all about it. Specially for being my backyard ants.

Can anyone please tell me which ant this is on the attachment?

Ps: I live in South Shore Massachusetts, this ant has 1 visible petiole, It is blackish-brown and I would consider it to be extremely very small compared to other ants.

It's definitely a drone, but I'm not sure of what species.

Lasius male. Looks like one of the claustral species, maybe neoniger or something.
