status

 

Ponera testacea Emery, 1895 

Records

(Map 5): Krupnik-Sandanski-Petrich Valley: Melnik, Melnik river valley, Rozhen ( Csősz and Seifert 2003).

Notes:

Csősz and Seifert (2003) revived the name Ponera coarctata var. testacea  from synonymy and raised it to species. Ponera testacea  is a more thermophilous species than Ponera coarctata  and seems to be widely distributed in Southern Europe. We are pretty sure that many of the previous records of Ponera coarctata  for Bulgaria might belong to Ponera testacea  .
