SSH AllowUser WildCard

This keyword can be followed by a list of user name patterns, separated
by spaces. If specified, login is allowed only for user names that match
one of the patterns. `*' and `?' can be used as wildcards in the
patterns. Only user names are valid; a numerical user ID is not
recognized. By default, login is allowed for all users. If the pattern
takes the form USER@HOST then USER and HOST are separately checked,
restricting logins to particular users from particular hosts.

So wild cards can be used although it doesn't specifically state they
can be used with the HOST part. Try it and see, my guess is it will work.
