I managed to catch a Queen Ant that I had never seen before. If anyone has an idea on the species it would help a lot. I believe she is semi claustral but I am no expert (sorry for the bad photos, I need to invest in a macro lens).

Location: Riondel B.C Canada

Date of collection: August 27

Habitat of collection: Forest underbrush

Length: 1 cm

Coloration: Dark reddish-orange head and thorax and a light orange gaster

Probably Manica like what AntsCali said, I'm guessing hunteri or invidia?

Yeah definitely manica. She is semi claustral so be sure to feed her during founding.

Thanks! Do I feed them proteins or sugars or do I feed her both?

Both, basically the same care as a young colony with nanitics.
