Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA

Size: Maybe around 17 mm?
Maybe not as large as a Zanti Misfit, but close! I'm guessing Camponotus pennsylvanicus (Black Carpenter Ant) - female?

Moved from Ants. Thanks!

Right guess - Camponotus pennsylvanicus
This is indeed a winged female of this widespread Carpenter Ant species. Actually one of the largest in the Atlantic States, together with C. noveboracensis and C. chromaiodes. Thank you for sharing this series of high quality pictures. Ventral view is especially impressive.
