Taxonomic history

[First available use of Formica fusca rufibarbis glauca Ruzsky, 1895; unavailable (infrasubspecific) name.]
Emery, 1909b PDF: 198 (q.m.).
As unavailable (infrasubspecific) name: Emery, 1909b PDF: 198.
Material of the unavailable name Formica rufibarbis montana minor referred here by Dlussky, 1967a PDF: 74.
Unidentifiable taxon, incertae sedis in Formica: Seifert, 2007: 301; nomen dubium: Seifert & Schultz, 2009b PDF: 271.
[Note: the decisions by Seifert, 2007, and Seifert & Schultz, 2009b PDF, render all earlier taxonomy untenable, and left the previous junior synonyms of Formica glauca in taxonomic limbo. The inclusion of Formica glauca as a species-rank taxon in the Bulgaria catalogue 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.]
