The ant species Temnothorax flavicornis (Emery, 1870) was recently found in Bulgaria and Turkey. The Bulgarian samples were collected from two sites in the southern part of the country. Three localities of the species were detected in the European part of Turkey and in western Anatolia. These are the first reports of T. flavicornis from Bulgaria and Turkey, which indicates the expansion of the geographical range eastwards.
