Here's a list of known Alaskan ants: https://www.antweb.org/taxonomicPage.do?rank=species&adm1Name=Alaska&countryName=United%20States

Only 5 genera appear on the list: Camponotus, Formica, Lasius, Leptothorax, and Myrmica. I"m going to guess a few other Camponotus species not listed on the website (like Camponotus modoc) might also be found in some areas of Alaska as well.
