The moderate yellow maculations of clypeodentatum tend to become somewhat fuller in southern California but exceptions to this occur. The female is easily identified by the densely pilose scape. The male has, in addition to a distinctive tergum VII and sternum VI, a characteristic setal "brush" (fig. 68). The species is infrequently collected (32 $, 22 9 ) in California, and it has not been taken in long series. Typically it is a mountain species preferring legume flowers, particularly the genus Lotus.
