// Distribution

Distribution:

  Geographic regions (According to curated Geolocale/Taxon lists):
    Americas: Canada, United States
  Biogeographic regions (According to curated Bioregion/Taxon lists):
    Nearctic

Distribution Notes:

NEARCTIC: US (AZ, MA), Canada

Biology:

Mesic woodlands in soil and leaf litter.

Identification:

Worker: inner border of mandible and anterior clypeal margin broadly convex in outline; California specimens smaller in size than those of A. oregonensis (HW 0.99-1.15), with narrower heads (CI 0.86-0.90).

Notes:

The differences in worker size (HW) and head shape (CI) between Amblyopone oregonensis and California A. pallipes break down when considering A. pallipes workers from eastern United States.
