Abstract:

Czechowski et al. (1995) described the structure and structuring of ant assemblages along a successionalgradient of moist pine forests (Peucedano-Pinetum and Leucobryo-Pinetum) in Poland. That paper did not take into account two systematic revisions where two common and abundant Lasius s. str. species, namely, L. niger (L.) and L. alienus (Först.), were split into two and three species respectively (Seifert 1991, 1992). In the light of the revised taxonomy and the present work, the former L. niger, in fact, included two sibling species: L. platythorax Seifert and L. niger, and the former L. alienus appeared to be L. psammophilus Seifert. In the present paper, the occurrence and abundances (nest densities) of these Lasius s. str. species in the successional habitats of the moist pine forests are reassessed according to the present taxonomic knowledge. The pioneer nature of L. platythorax in forest habitats is stressed.
