I really don't think this is a queen but I would like to let you guys see it... found her after looking under stone slabs everyday.

Nice catch! I am pretty sure this is a worker.

I'll second this is Stigmatomma pallipes. I also think it's just a worker, though wing scars might be difficult to see on this one.

I'm not entirely sure Whether or not it is a worker or queen but queens backs from the research I've done seem to be more arched, and I do not see visible wing scars in the picture.

worker, queens in my experience have a broghter red and larger gaster and darker body and head, and they have a heavier thorax. Good catch nonetheless!

Proverbs 6:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
    consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
    no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
    and gathers its food at harvest.

I'll be making a video if I observe feeding behavior!

What do you feed your colony?? I feed mine geo centipedes. I've had my colony for almost 2 years and it only got 16 workers and 10ish larvae. They are very very slow growing colonies.


Keeps:
1:Tetramorium immigrans
1:Stigmatomma pallipes
1:Proceratium sp.
2:Prenolepis imparis (founding)
2:Camponotus casteanus
8:Camponotus chromaiodes
1:Vollenhovia emeryi
1:Trachymyrmex septentrionalis
1:Crematogaster sp. Queen (founding)
