Camponotus vagus Scopoli, 1763 Hymenoptera Formicidae a new ant species for Belgium?

, : Camponotus vagus Scopoli, 1763 Hymenoptera Formicidae a new ant species for Belgium?. Bulletin de la Societe Royale Belge d'Entomologie. Januari-Juni; 1381-6: 29-30

In Tildonk (Province of Brabant) a nest of Camponotus vagus (SCOPOLI, 1763), has been discovered in wooden rails in a garden surrounded with shrubs and trees, making the habitat a thermophilic place. The first foraging workers were observed in February 1998. So far only Camponotus herculeanus (LINNAEUS, 1758), Camponotus ligniperda (LATREILLE, 1802) and Camponotus piceus (LEACH, 1825) were known for Belgium. The species C. vagus is a south European species abundantly seen in the Mediterranean area, but also recorded within the area from Portugal to South Russia and from the Mountains of North Africa to Poland. The nest has probably been imported along with the wooden rails. In the Netherlands imported C. vagus nests have persisted during 30-40 years and the species was recently added to the Dutch ant fauna. As the nest in Tildonk has already been active for 3 years and also others nests of C. vagus might be discovered in the surroundings, this ant species could be added to the Belgian fauna as a doubtful species.
