Taxonomic history

Junior synonym of Lasius flavus: Roger, 1862c PDF: 285; Mayr, 1886d PDF: 429.
Unidentifiable to genus; incertae sedis in Lasius: Bolton, 1995b: 225.
[Identity of this taxon is unknowable (material lost, description very vague), so Roger's synonymy may stand. Emery, 1925d PDF: 231, provisional synonymy of Lasius ruficornis with Lasius nearcticus is certainly incorrect.].
