This species is found mainly in the Palaearctic region, in such countries as Turkey, Iran, and other southwestern Asian nations.
A. crassicauda lives in the ruins of old, neglected structures, and was considered a potential hazard for troops during the Persian Gulf conflict, though it was an unaggressive species that had no reports of stings.
