Taxonomic history

[First available use of Formica fusca rufibarbis glauca Ruzsky, 1895: 20 (w.) RUSSIA; unavailable (infrasubspecific) name.].
Emery, 1909b PDF: 198 (q.m.).
Combination in Formica (Serviformica): Emery, 1925d PDF: 250.
Subspecies of Formica rufibarbis: Emery, 1925d PDF: 250.
Unidentifiable taxon, incertae sedis in Formica: Seifert, 2007: 301.
[Note: the decisions by Seifert, 2007, and Seifert, 2007, render all earlier taxonomy untenable, and leave the previous junior synonyms of Formica glauca in taxonomic limbo. The inclusion of Formica glauca as a species-rank taxon in the Bulgaria catalog of Lapeva-Gjonova et al., 2010 PDF is not considered to be a statement of change in taxonomic rank, but the resurrection by Radchenko, 2016: 304-306, achieves this purpose.].
Material of the unavailable name Formica minor referred here by Dlussky, 1967a PDF: 74.
