DISTRIBUTION IN TURKEY. — Ardahan, Kırklareli.

REMARKS

Myrmica tulinae  was described from Kırklareli and Artvin provinces in Turkey ( Elmes et al. 2002). The researchers gave no coordinate data for the locality in Artvin province and mentioned it only with the expression “NE Turkey, South edge of Artvin Region, high pass ca. 10km N of Ardeşen, alt. 2150m ”. However, this locality cannot be located in Artvin province because Ardeşen city is located along sea side and 10 km north of Ardeşen corresponds to a place in the middle of sea. Radchenko & Elmes (2010) altered the locality of the species as “NE Turkey, South edge of Artvin Region, high pass ca. 10km N of Ardahan, alt. 2150m ”. Therefore, we preferred to use Ardahan instead of Artvin for the distribution of M. tulinae  in Turkey.
