Strumigenys pulchella Emery, 1895

Distribution. Canada to USA; in eastern USA from Florida to New York and west to Iowa; in western USA occurs in Kansas, and Texas.

Comments. Strumigenys pulchella is a wide-ranging eastern to midwestern species often found nesting in hardwood stumps and rotting fallen branches. In Kansas , Dubois (1985) reports a colony collected in rotten wood in a deciduous forest. The Field Museum houses a specimen from North Dakota (FMHD 0000 050 802) , but this specimen’s collection data were digitized erroneously. This specimen was collected by H. Dybas in 1950 near Station Lake , Porter County, Indiana . There are no validated records of Strumigenys in North Dakota .
