Notes:

During the last decade Myrmica slovaca  has been considered as a junior synonym of Myrmica salina  Ruzsky, 1905, but very recently Radchenko and Elmes (2009) based on the finding of Ruzsky’s original type material of Myrmica salina  showed that these two species are not conspecific and revived the name Myrmica slovaca  from synonymy.

Despite the fact that one of the type localities of Myrmica slovaca  is in Bulgaria, this species was omitted by Atanassov and Dlusskij (1992).
