Brachymyrmex Mayr


Genus Brachymyrmex Mayr  

The name B. depilis Emery   is provisionally attached to the single species of Brachymyrmex   that occurs in California. It is widespread but infrequently encountered, in part because of its small size and inconspicuous foraging behavior. This is a groundĀ­nesting species, recorded in California from sea level to ~ 1900m. References: Creighton (1950 a), Page (1982), Smith (1979), Wheeler and Wheeler (1986g), Yensen et al. (1980).
