Identification

Borowiec and Salata (2013) - Schulz & Sanetra (2002) suggested that all Strongylognathus species recorded from Ionian and Adriatic Sea basins represents one variable species. Our material from Korfu and Crete and comparison it with photos of several specimens of S. huberi group showed in AntWeb resources (www.antweb.org) seems to confirm the opinion of above authors. Continental populations have the most sculptured head, island populations from west to east are gradually less and less sculptured. Populations from Korfu and Crete have the least sculptured head but specimens from Korfu are slightly more sculptured than specimens from Crete. Both populations agree well with the description of Strongylognathus dalmaticus and a photograph of its syntype.

The similar species Strongylognathus silvestrii details the means of separating these two species in the S. silvestrii identifcation text.
