could you identify which species of ant is this queen. I caught it in Bangalore, India. I caught it after a rain at around five to six.

  • $\begingroup$ I caught it at around five to six. I also caught it directly after a rain storm. I live in a relatively warm place which is not to humid. Oh and I caught it just outside my house. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 26, 2018 at 10:08

Although absolutely no formal criteria are visible on your photo, the general shape of the ant, especially the wide elongated head and low thorax, is typical of the ant genus Camponotus.
