Regularity: Regularly occurring
Type of Residency: Year-round
Habitat Type: Terrestrial
Comments: This is the characteristic member of the subgenus Albinula in the central and western plains, where it is found under stones, within loess bank fissures, and in thin litter accumulations in riparian forests and grasslands. Towards the east it becomes largely limited to xeric habitats associated with bedrock outcrops or sand deposits. Nekola and Coles (2010) support Hubricht (1972) who noted that even though it frequently co-occurs with Gastrocopta armifera and Gastrocopta similis, intermediate individuals never occur.
Non-Migrant: No. All populations of this species make significant seasonal migrations.
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make local extended movements (generally less than 200 km) at particular times of the year (e.g., to breeding or wintering grounds, to hibernation sites).
Locally Migrant: No. No populations of this species make annual migrations of over 200 km.
