Genus Brachymyrmex Mayr  HNS 

The name B. depilis Emery  HNS  is provisionally attached to the single species of Brachymyrmex  HNS  that occurs in California. It is widespread but infrequently encountered, in part because of its small size and inconspicuous foraging behavior. This is a ground-nesting species, recorded in California from sea level to ~1900m. References: Creighton (1950a), Page (1982), Smith (1979), Wheeler and Wheeler (1986g), Yensen et al. (1980).
