REMARKS

Tapinoma subboreale Emery, 1925  is distributed in Albania, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Britain, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Rep., France: Corsica, mainland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy: mainland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain: Baleares, mainland, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine ( Borowiec & Salata 2012). Borowiec & Salata (2012) stated that T. subboreale  occurs in Greece and Turkey but in eastern part of the Mediterranean basin this species is very rare and occurs only in its northern borders. In the Aegean and Anatolian Regions T. subboreale  is replaced by a sister species: T. festae  . Both species are extremely similar in worker and gyne castes and are easy to distinguish only by study male genitalia. Re-examination of material from Greece showed that only T. festae  occurs in that country and that previous data on T. subboreale  were based on misidentification (Lech Borowiec, personal communication). The material given here as Tapinoma cf. festae  contains only workers and gynes, and it is not possible to separate T. festae  from T. subboreale  without examination on male genitalia. In this manner, according to their distributional dominance in the region this material without males are left as Tapinoma cf. festae  for now and need further investigation.
