Four workers from CHINA, Zhejiang Province, Gutianshan National Nature Reserve, ca. 30 km NW of Kaihua, 29°15'18"N / 118°8'51"E, 880 m asl, 25.VI.2009, pitfall trap in secondary mixed evergreen broad-leaved forest, leg. Andreas Schuldt, label: “CSP6/SE6(2009)” (1 each in CASC: CASENT0914927 and IZAS).
Hubei, Zhejiang (Fig. 6C).
So far Aenictus wudangshanensis has been known only from the type series collected in the Wudangshan Nature Reserve, Hubei Province. The four specimens from the Gutianshan National Nature Reserve agree very well with the original description of Wang (2006, therein figs 1.2). Like the type series, the specimens were collected at mid elevation in an evergreen broad-leaved forest and Aenictus wudangshanensis may be restricted to this habitat type.
