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?

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