Description:

"One of almost 100 species of Andrena that occur in the state of Maryland. Quick glance, another dark bee, but if you look closely you will see the dense pitting on the top of the abdomen, the subtle white hair bands on the abdomen, and most importantly the clincher is the inner tibial spur is s-curved in sigmoidality, while other species have more or less straight ones." (S. Droege, pers. comm.)

There are 17 records in the project database.
