Abstract: Three species of the genus Leptothorax have been reported for the Hungarian fauna. Two ant species, Leptothorax nigriceps Mayr, 1855 and Leptothorax sordidulus saxonicus Seifert, 1995 are new for the Hungarian ant fauna. Leptothorax gredleri Mayr, 1855 was hitherto reported from only two localities. The wast majority of the L. muscorum (Nylander, 1846) proved to be L. gredleri Mayr, which is a much more common species in Hungary than they thought before. Morphological and distributional characteristics of these species are presented. With 5 figures.
