S. karawajewi is distributed in Crimea, Transcaucasia, Kazakhstan and Central Asia, and its presence in China is unlikely. Because it is very similar to S. potanini and S. tylonus its records from China might belong to one of the above-mentioned species. Hence, we propose to remove S. karawajewi from the list of Chinese ants. (Radchenko et al., 2017)
