Species text
The ant Lasius brunneus has an inland distribution in southern England, in the Thames Valley and the Severn Vale (Alexander & Taylor, 1997). The ant is widespread in suitable habitat in south western Essex as far north as Hatfield Forest. It is a tree-dwelling ant, typically nesting in old oak trees in parkland, but is also sometimes found in hedgerows. There is some evidence that it has recently been spreading. References
