From Sakagami and Michener (1962): Nest architecture is Type Vd: The cells are oriented vertically in a cluster that is completely surrounded by a cavity created by burrowing around the cluster. The cluster and cavity are connected to the main burrow by a lateral burrow. Multiple clusters may occur in one nest. Cells are arranged in combs.
