Overview

The following material taken with permission from: Mitchell, T.B. 1962. Bees of the Eastern United States, Volume II. North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. Tech. Bul. No.152, 557 p.

The single species in this genus is a small, narrow and elongate, rather finely punctured, black bee. The basal abdominal tergum is sulcate anteriorly; the posterior face of the propodeum is sloping, the dorsal area coarsely reticulate and forming a part of the dorsal surface of the thorax, with the metanotum also dorsal, just posterior to the rounded scutellum. The axillae are small and poorly differentiated from the lateral margins of the scutellum; the notaulices are linear; neither the pleura nor the tubercles are carinate; arolia are present; and the front wings have a large stigma, with both recurrent veins received well within the base and apex of the 2nd submarginal cell. The maxillary palpi are 4-segmented; the female mandibles are tri-dentate, those of the males bi-dentate; and the abdominal terga are not fasciate. Tergum 7 of the male is conspicuously bidentate apically, and sterna 5-7 are retracted.
