Records

Notes:

After examination of the “holotype” of Myrmica bessarabica  Seifert (2002a) found that there is a discrepancy between Nasonov’s original description and the characteristics of this specimen, and proposed considering Myrmica bessarabica  incertae sedis in the genus Myrmica  , and revived the name Myrmica specioides  from synonymy (see also Radchenko and Elmes 2004).
