Insertae Sedis

This species is based upon a single female collected at Beltsville, Maryland, May 2, 1915, by L. O. Jackson (USNM No. 75,192). It is not possible to place this species in its proper subgenus with confidence without studying the male. The pronotum of the female has weak humeral angles but lacks dorsoventral ridges. The corbicular hairs are highly plumose and present interiorly. The scopal hairs are short and simple. For these reasons, this female might represent a third species of the subgenus Notandrena Perez (LaBerge 1986) in North America. The female can be distinguished from the other two Nearctic species of Notandrena by the shiny clypeus, metascutum and scutellum, and the highly plumose corbicular hairs.

FEMALE. Length 7 mm.; head rather broad, face only very slightly longer than distance between eyes; eyes parallel; foveae rather narrow, occupying above about two-thirds of space between eyes and ocelli, slightly narrowed below, terminating at about level of upper margin of clypeus, covered with pale tomentum; lateral ocelli separated from margin of vertex by a space no greater than their diameter; cheeks somewhat broader than eyes; clypeus slightly protuberant, protruding nearly one-half below suborbital line, smooth and shining, with scattered, very fine and rather sparse, irregular punctures; face below ocelli dull, finely but distinctly and closely striate, vertex dull, with a few obscure, scattered punctures at each extreme side, cheeks smooth but rather dull, punctures minute and barely evident; malar space hardly evident; process of labrum transverse, quite large, entire apically, median length about one-third basal width; flagellum becoming yellowish beneath apically, basal segment about equal to segments 2-4 combined, these very short, median segments about as long as broad; pubescence of head and thorax creamy, somewhat more whitish on cheeks, lower portions of face and on thorax laterally; scutum and scutellum shining, punctures evident on scutum anteriorly but rather minute and obscure, this portion rather dull, median and posterior areas polished, punctures exceedingly minute, sparse and irregular, scutellum with only a very few, widely scattered, minute punctures; pleura smooth but dull and tessellate; dorsal area of propodeum poorly defined, very densely tessellate or obscurely, minutely rugose, lateral areas densely tessellate; propodeal corbicula well developed, dorsal hairs long and curled, densely plumose, with a rather well developed anterior fringe, interior largely without hair; trochanteral floccus well developed, complete, of very long curved and plumose hairs; legs rather dark basally, tarsal segments becoming rather pale testaceous, basitarsi rather narrow and parallel-sided, hind tibiae becoming rather broad apically but not twice the width of their basitarsi, scopal hairs quite short, entirely pale yellow; spurs pale testaceous; wings subhyaline, veins pale testaceous, stigma more brownish, 2nd submarginal cell about half length of 3rd, receiving 1st recurrent slightly beyond middle; abdominal terga smooth but rather dull, punctures very fine, rather evenly distributed, well separated but not sparse, segments 2-4 rather narrowly impressed apically, these areas somewhat reddened and minutely, rather sparsely punctate, with narrow, whitish, apical fasciae, these interrupted on the 2nd and 3rd, apical fimbria rather yellowish.
