Species delimitation is fundamental for many biolog ical studies; its importance extends from regional faunistics over behavioral research to the reconstruction of evolut i nary history. However, species delimitation in th e Palearctic Tetramorium caespitum species complex (formerly Tetramorium caespitum / impurum complex) has stayed ambiguous over a century. A 2006 study argued for the presenc e of eight Western Palearctic cryptic species but d id not draw formal taxonomic conclusions due to… CONTINUE READING
