Collingwood and Agosti (1996) – This species is abundant in the lower valleys of south-west Yemen just as it is around Fayfa in Saudi Arabia. The rather similar Camponotus flavomarginatus seems to be more restricted to the mountains where, as in the Asir mountains and the Sumara and Sangani passes in Yemen, it occurred on rugged land over 2200 m.
