Taxonomic history

[First available use of Lasius niger brunneus himalayanus Forel, 1894; unavailable (infrasubspecific) name.].
Junior synonym of Lasius brunneus: Wilson, 1955a PDF: 47.
Status as species: Seifert, 1992b PDF: 8 (redescription); Bolton, 1995b: 223; Tang et al., 1995: 110; Guénard & Dunn, 2012 PDF: 33; Bharti & Gul, 2013a PDF: 57 (in key); Bharti et al., 2016 PDF: 27.
[Note: ostensibly as a subspecies of Lasius brunneus, but Seifert, 1992b PDF: 8, also states that Lasius himalayanus may be a valid species; it is treated as such here (Bolton, 1995b: 223).].
