Taxonomic history

Unidentifiable to genus; incertae sedis in Formica: Bolton, 1995b: 202.
[Latreille, 1802a: 263, gives Formica pusilla as a senior synonym of Formica nana [missing reference] Latreille, [no year], but the latter is also unrecognisable. [missing reference] Similarly Retzius, 1783: 76, gives Formica pusilla as a junior synonym of Formica omnivora, another unidentifiable name.].
