This image clinches it, with the small cluster of erect hairs visible on the right rear corner of the head, and the scapes notably shorter than head length, this is the true P. lucidus. Might you be able to send me a sample of these including their host Formica incerta, in 90-95% ethanol?

Sorry, I must have missed this comment before. I took coordinates on the colony, and I can collect specimens next year I suppose. I'm assuming they would not be active by now.
