Nevada, Wheeler and Wheeler (1986) - We have 11 records from 11 localities, which are widely scattered north of the Hot Desert. Four are from the Cool Desert, 3 from the Pinyon-Juniper Biome, and 1 from the ecotone below the Alpine. Four nests were under stones and 1 was under a dead prostrate sagebrush trunk. The workers were timid and fast.
The following information is derived from Barry Bolton's New General Catalogue, a catalogue of the world's ants.
