Strumigenys apalachicolensis was described in 2001, by Deyrup and Lubertazzi, and thus far, has only been collected from the Apalachicola National Forest in Florida. This species can be distinguished from all other Nearctic Strumigenys species by the combination of these characters: head shape, which is roughly cuneiform in frontal view; mandibles with a distinct diastema; and marginal and discal hairs on clypeus sparse, long, filiform, and slightly recurved (from Deyrup and Lubertazzi, 2001).
