Subgenus, not subfamily. ;)

The Lasius parasite subgenera in North America are Chthonolasius and Acanthomyops. Eurasia has Chthonolasius, Dendrolasius, and Austrolasius.

Isn't L. fuliginosus in Dendrolasius?

Yup! Interestingly, they produce lots of citronellol, much like our Acanthomyops.

I would need to see the hair on the gaster for this one, but for now it's L. umbratus or L. speculiventris.
