Genus Leptothorax Mayr 

The ant genus Leptothorax  formerly comprised a large and heterogeneous assemblage of species but Bolton (2003) redefined it to include only those species closely related to L. acervorum Fabricius. Most  California species previously placed in Leptothorax  are now assigned to Temnothorax Mayr  (see below), with two species remaining in Leptothorax  .
