REMARKS

Temnothorax nylanderi (Förster, 1850)  was the only species of the T. nylanderi  complex known from Turkey until Radchenko (2000) raised T. crassispinus (Karavajev, 1926)  to species rank and limited the distribution of T. nylanderi  to Central and West Europe. In addition, Csősz et al. (2015) recently described a new species, T. crasecundus  , from Balkans and Asia Minor.Therefore, we decided to exclude T. nylanderi  and T. crassispinus  from Turkish ant fauna. All specimens previously determined as T. nylanderi  and T. crassispinus  from Turkey refer to T. crasecundus  .
