I found these three Crematogaster queens up a canyon in Utah under a rock. They are from a colony that had nine visible queens so I took three. They obviously appear to be polygynous as I found several colonies with multiple queens each and this one in particular had a lot. Any idea on the exact species? According to Antweb, the only polygynous ones in Utah are Crematogaster emeryana, but wanted to see if anyone knew for sure.

It's hard to know for sure without microscopic images but it's likely emeryana. Care should be similar regardless of the exact species.
