Notes:

Agosti and Collingwood (1987a) recorded Tetramorium forte  and Tetramorium moravicum  from Bulgaria, but Atanassov and Dlusskij (1992) treated Tetramorium moravicum  , as well as Tetramorium taurocaucasicum  , as junior synonyms of Tetramorium forte  . The complicate taxonomic history of this species was resolved recently by Csősz et al. 2007 (for some more details see also Radchenko et al. 1998, Czechowski et al. 2002, Güsten et al. 2006).
