DISTRIBUTION (Map. 5)
UNITED STATES: Southern California; MEXICO: Baja California Sur.
UNITED STATES , CALIFORNIA, Riverside Co. : Riverside ( LACM ) .San Bernardino Co. : Mojave Desert ( USNM ) ;4 mi. NNW Adelanto 2900 ' ( LACM ) .
MEXICO , BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR : 8.4 mi W on Ramal a Los Naranjo , at light ( LACM ) .
This species has been previously known only from the type specimen, from an unknown locality in the Mojave Desert. The specimen from north of Adelanto was picked up dead on the ground.
Neivamyrmex mojave is evidently nearest to N. microps and superficially looks much like that ant. However it may be distinguished from that species by the non-toothed volsella, and differences in coloration. This species might also be mistaken for N. minor but may be readily distinguished from that species by the small size of the ocelli.
The recently described N. nyensis Watkins may be the worker form of this species.
