Distribution:

  Geographic regions (According to curated Geolocale/Taxon lists):
    Oceania: Australia, Fiji, Micronesia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands
  Biogeographic regions (According to curated Bioregion/Taxon lists):
    Australasia, Oceania

Distribution Notes:

The global distribution of C. nuda, as defined by Seifert (2003), is restricted to Australasia and the Pacific Island region. Records of C. nuda previous to the publication, and outside this region, likely refer to close relatives such as C. kagutsuchi or C. mauritanica.

Biology:

In Fiji: Cardiocondyla nuda was first described by from Ovalau, Fiji. Since then its name has been erroneously applied to many species of similar appearance, including C. kagutsuchi and C. minutior, both of which occur in Fiji. For a discussion on how to separate C. nuda from other Cardiocondyla in Fiji, see the notes under C. kagutsuchi. Only several specimens of C. nuda were taken during the recent survey, including one that was nesting under a stone.
