Formica flava Fabricius, 1782 an obsolete combination of Lasius flavus (Fabricius, 1782)
Formica flava Fabricius, 1782: 491 (w.) [Note: Dours, 1873: 165, Ruzsky, 1905b: 276, Ruzsky, 1916: 5, and others, mistakenly attribute authorship of flava to De Geer. I (Barry Bolton) can find no mention of Formica flava in either of De Geer’s publications that include formicids (1773, 1778).] EUROPE. Palearctic.
