Abstract

Observations on mixed colonies have shown that Formica fossaceps and Formica obscuriventris clivia both live as slaves for Formica rubicunda together with Formica cinerea montana and Formica fusca. Formica obscuriventris clivia may start its colonies as a temporary social parasite of fusca.
