Is there any young brood they can make Q cells on?

She couldn`t have survived like that for very long so you`ve probably got young brood somewhere.

Hi burch I know its a stressful time but by the time you get a queen they may just have raised one by then. By all means order a queen and introduce her but in the meantime observe the bees and see how they handle it.

But do you think you may have have done this, as she coudnt live that long with only half a body , if you relook at see how old the brood is and you will probably realise when this may have happened, like the others I would wait and see what happens before getting a new queen.
