REMARKS

In the former studies, three taxa of the C. albicans   group were reporter from Turkey C. livida   , C. viaticoides ( André, 1881)   and C. rubra (Forel, 1903)   . But our studies revealed that there are only two species. One of them is uniformly bright yellow and the other is distinctly bicolored. The occurrence of C. rubra   is based on Radchenko’s papers ( Radchenko 1997 a, 1998), who determined distinctly bicoloured specimens as C. rubra ( Radchenko 1997a)   . His assumption was probably based on confusion related with the type labels of C. livida   and C. viaticoides   , which was explained by Bračko et al. (2016). After solving the mislabelling of the type specimens of C. livida   and C. viaticoides   , C. rubra   was removed from the ant fauna of Turkey considering its North African, Central and South Middle East distribution ( Borowiec 2014).
