Strumigenys chiricahua ( Ward, 1988)

Distribution. USA; Arizona

Comments. This species is known from two collections and possibly a third. The holotype worker was collected in a Berlesate sample of concentrated leaf litter from an oak woodland, and a colony of more than 20 workers was extracted from a rotten root in a juniper woodland. Both validated collections were made in August at or near the Southwestern Research Station in the Chiricahua Mountains in Arizona. A third possible specimen is an alate queen tentatively identified from images. This specimen was collected by Gary Alpert in a Malaise trap 16 km southeast of Flagstaff in Walnut Canyon National Monument , Coconino County, in the bottom of a ravine (BugGuide 2020a).
