Records

(Map 32): Bulgaria ( Emery 1922, Agosti and Collingwood 1987a); Krupnik-Sandanski-Petrich Valley:Petrich ( Atanassov and Dlusskij 1992); Rila Mt.: Borovets ( Emery 1914).

Notes:

Bolton (1995) and Bolton et al. (2006) erroneously considered Temnothorax melanocephalus  as a junior synonym of Temnothorax tuberum  , referring this synonymy to Casevitz-Weulersse (1990), but at the same time noted that Atanassov and Dlusskij (1992) considered Temnothorax melanocephalus  as a good species. Since 1992 its status has not been formally changed by any subsequent authors and we consider it as a good species.
