  • “Key to parasitic Tetramorium species. This queen key is based on: Kiran, K., Karaman, C., Lapeva-Gjonova, A. & Aksoy, V. 2017. Two new species of the “ultimate” parasitic ant genus Teleutomyrmex Kutter, 1950 from the Western Palaearctic. Myrmecological News 25: 145-155. Originally assigned their own genus, Teleutomyrmex, these ants prey on other Tetramorium species. The species Tetramorium atratulum is not included in this key and bears no resemblance to the other parasites in the genus. Males …

  • “Tetramorium buschingeri. A Bulgarian social parasite found in the nest of a of Tetramorium species nesting under a rock in a grassland. Identification. Kiran, et al. (2017) - Gynes differ from the other three Teleutomyrmex species by the absence of any carinae or teeth on dorsal surface of propodeum, by a very short dorsal profile of propodeum, by a much stronger developed reticulate or alveolate microsculpture covering the whole surface of lateral mesosoma and petiole and by smaller CL / CW. F…

The queens produce eggs that are cared for and raised to maturity by the host workers. Distribution. Distribution based on Regional Taxon Lists.

    And on AmeisenWiki: “Lasius fuliginosus, im Deutschen Glänzendschwarze Holzameise oder Kartonameise genannt, ist ein örtlich gehäuft vorkommender Vertreter der Schuppenameisen in Mitteleuropa. Die Art gehört zur Untergattung Dendrolasius, was auf ihre Affinität zu Holz hinweist (griech. dendron: Baum).” And “Verbreitung und Lebensraum.

    On AntWiki: “This species exhibits temporary social parasitism. Queens found new colonies by infiltrating an established nest of a different ant species, killing the queen and having the host workers care for her initial brood. Hosts include Lasius alienus, Lasius brunneus, Lasius mixtus, Lasius niger, Lasius rabaudi and Lasius umbratus. Lasius fuliginosus form large carton nests commonly in cavities at the base of old trees (oak, birch, willow, pine).” And “Distribution. Portugal to Japan and N…

    Hallo. I want to talk about an ant. The ant is Lasius fuliginosus (Latreille, 1798), original described as Formica fuliginosa Latreille, 1798, moved to Lasius by Mayr, 1861, to Donisthorpea by Donisthorpe, 1915, to Formicina by Emery, 1916, to Acanthomyops by Forel, 1916, and to Lasius (Dendrolasius) by Ruzsky, 1912. So this ant is already known for 222 years. And this is the most important information you can find online (got this on 27/02/2020 between 10:30 and 11:30!): On AntWeb: “Distributio…
