REMARKS

Seifert (1992) separated the largely distributed L. alienus  into the five Westpalaearctic species L. alienus  , L. paralienus Seifert, 1992  , L. piliferus Seifert, 1992  , L. psammophilus Seifert, 1992  and Lasius obscuratus Stitz, 1930  . Additionally, Seifert & Galkowski (2016) recently divided L. paralienus  into complex of tree species L. paralienus  , L. casevitzi Seifert & Galkowski, 2016  and L. bombycina  . They indicated that the only known sympatric occurrence of L. paralienus  is in NW Balkans and Bulgaria. Therefore, we suggest here to remove L. paralienus  from Turkish ant fauna considering its European distribution from France to Bulgaria. All previously determined L. paralienus  materials should refer to L. bombycina  .
