Texas has three species of Odontomachus. You should treat them the same as any member of this genus.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.

Antmaps references to Odontomachus desertorum and O. brunneus being present in Texas. Not saying your assumption is wrong, though.
