Strumigenys boneti Brown, 1959

Distribution. USA to Honduras; in USA occurs in Texas.

Comments. Strumigenys boneti has a mainly Central American distribution with a range barely entering the USA, in two Texas counties (Hidalgo and Cameron) bordering the Rio Grande. Stray workers of this species have been collected mostly by litter sifting in woodland habitats in at least seven localities in the most southern subtropical refugia of Texas. The collections of this species south of Texas tend to follow the Gulf and Atlantic states of Mexico into the Yucatán Peninsula, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras.
