status

 

Lasius distinguendus  HNS  (Emery, 1916:64)

This is an inadequately characterised species. It is mainly found in South and Central Europe and most easily recognised in the queen caste. It is like a larger, paler L. mixtus  HNS  but has more abundant genal hairs and a high broadly emarginate scale. The worker has occasional tibial hairs and longer body hairs than L. mixtus  HNS  and would be more easily confused with L. umbratus  HNS  . According to B. Pisarski (priv.commun.) it occurs in North Germany and probably also in Poland.
