Lasius flavus is native to a lot of U.S. states, yet I am not saying that it is right to order even a native species.

There are actually no Lasius flavus in North America. Ours turned out to be a new species, Lasius brevicornis. Hopefully this adds to the point that it is irrelevant whether or not a buyer thinks an ant is native.

Now I'm starting to wonder whether Europe and North America have any species in common.

I now won't be surprised if taxonomists declare that the European and North American Formica fusca and Camponotus herculeanus are two different species.
