Physical Description

Diagnostic Description

Length ca. 10–16 mm; ITW 2.2–3.1 mm. Integument entirely black or dark brown, except often ferruginous apically on mandibles, basolaterally on labrum, and laterally on F1; dorsum of mesosoma and metasoma with bands of yellow setae. Clypeus with weak midline and distinct larger punctures (partially obscured in specimens with brown/black setae on clypeus, especially males). Paramedian band indistinct from dense yellow setae covering anterior third to fourth of mesoscutum. Scutellum strongly to moderately bigibbous; axillar spine triangular, reaching midpoint of scutellum. Mesepisternum lacking erect, simple setae; with distinct region of yellow, branched setae on dorsal third to fourth; remainder black, covered with minute, contiguous punctures and black or dark brown, branched setae. T1 discal patch strongly rectangular to subovate (very reduced in some specimens from Arizona); T2 completely covered with pale yellow setae except for semicircular to trapezoidal basal black region. Female: Pseudopygidial area with long, stout setae forming posterior “plate”; S5 strongly downcurved; ventral meso- and metasomata entirely dark brown. Male: Pygidial plate relatively wide, with distinct basal transverse ridge; metasomal sterna with setae dark brown except sometimes with white setae laterally on S3; S3 with apical setae slightly surpassing apical margin; S4–S5 with dark brown apical fringes.
