Identification
"Can be recognized by the 9-segmented antennae, narrowly subtruncate to narrowly rounded clypeal apex, strong frontoclypeal carina, large and semicircularly rounded mandibles and robust body form. Close examination of the antennomeres is necessary because the subdivided 5th segment can cause the antenna to appear 10-segmented." -Ratcliffe et al. 2013

Oak and juniper woodlands and mesquite bosque.
Season
June, July, and August

Remarks
"Anoplognatho dunianus is rarely collected even though it has a relatively broad distribution" Ratcliffe et al. 2013.
