First record of the ant Formica clara in the Iberian Peninsula (Hymenoptera: Formicidae)

Abstract

The ant F. clara is reported from two localities in Barcelona (NE Iberian Peninsula), representing the southernmost record of the species in Southwestern Europe. Foraging workers were manually collected from both undisturbed and disturbed habitats. Its separation from the similar species F. cunicularia and F. rufibarbis in the Iberian Peninsula is discussed.
