Identification
Extracted from Western Bees obtained by the American Museum Expeditions by Cockerell (1921).


IDAHO : 19 , Victor, about 6300 ft. alt., July 11, 1920; 1 ~,Giveout, near Montpelier, about 6700 ft. alt., July 7, 1920. COLORADO: 1 ~ (a variation with basal area of metathorax black), along the South Fork of the Rio Grande at about 37° 36' N., 106° 43' 'V., about 8500 ft. alt. Specimens from Costilla County, Colorado, which Swenk in U)12 placed under bella" were transferred by him to schwarzi in 1915. The type of schwarzi is a male from Veta Pass. The female described by me under schwarzi was lepida. At present, I probably have the 9 of schwarzi mixed with Rocky Mountain bella and do not know how to separate it.
