Radchenko & Elmes, 2010
Myrmica kozakorum was recently documented in the region stretching from the steppe zone of southern Ukraine to West Siberia and Kazakshtan. It is fairly tolerant of high soil salinity, and normally can be found in relatively wet and shaded places in the steppe region. Colonies are small, containing at most a few hundred workers. Nests are built in the soil (Radchenko and Elmes 2010, Czekes et al. 2012).

Based on its occurrence in the Black Sea region of Southern Ukraine, its presence in Romania is expected primarily in the steppe area of Dobdrudja and in Southern Moldova.
