DISTRIBUTION (Map 3)

UNITED STATES: Arizona. MEXICO: Jalisco, Oaxaca.

SPECIMENS EXAMINED

UNITED STATES, ARIZONA, Santa Cruz Co., Florida Canyon , Santa Rita Mts. (LACM, GCSC).

MEXICO, JALISCO, Chamela Biological Station (USNM); Ototonilco (USNM). OAXACA, 13 mi NW Oaxaca , 5500 ft. (LACM).

DISCUSSION

This species has not been previously recorded from the United States. Its discovery in southern Arizona raises the possibility that this species, rather than N. melanocephalusHNS, might be the worker caste of N. mandibularisHNS. The question cannot now be resolved.
