DistributionAptostichus angelinajolieae is restricted in distribution to the Santa Lucia Range of Monterey County (Map 6), bounded to the east by the Salinas River Valley (SRV). The ecoregion is characterized as California Coastal Chaparral Forest and Shrub. As discussed in Bond and Stockman (2008) the DM (Map 7) predicts the areas with the highest probability of occurrence in the regions east of the SRV, with the valley likely serving as a barrier to dispersal. The few male specimens known were collected during the late fall through winter months (October–December, February), with one specimen collected in July that molted to the final adult stage a month later in August. Female specimens are frequently found on shaded, damp steep banks and road cuts throughout the region. Burrows are generally shallow comprising a white silken lined retreat, covered by a thin silk-soil trapdoor.
