3. Female, P. arizonensis vs P. jonesi

1P. arizonensis - The clypeus is densely pitted such that medially the average interpit distance is almost always less than or about one pit diameter - The hair tuft present between the anterior and posterior ocelli is primarily a light yellowish color, although it may sometimes be invaded by a limited degree of darker hair which may be found laterally - The hair on the outer face of the mid tibia is primarily or entirely a dark brownish-black color - The hairs that run along the top of the tibial scopa, the line from the basitibial plate to the end of the tibia, and the outer face of the hind basitarsus are entirely dark brownish-black, or very nearly so    1P. jonesi - The clypeus is nearly unpitted medially, the average interpit distance well in excess of one pit diameter, and relatively sparsely pitted elsewhere - The hair tuft found between the anterior and posterior ocelli is USUALLY primarily dark in coloration, although there is almost always some degree of lighter hair present as well - The hair on the outer face of the mid tibia is a light brownish color - The hairs which run along the top of the tibial scopa, the line from the basitibial plate to the end of the tibia, are nearly entirely light except for a small dark patch near the basitibial plate and the hairs on the outer face of the basitarsus are a similarly light yellowish-brownish color   

4. Male, P. arizonensis vs P. jonesi

1P. arizonensis - The integument of the clypeus is primarily dark, brownish-black - At its tip, the fused outer hind tibial spur is somewhat bulbous and clearly several times wider than the tip of the inner tibial spur - The hairs arising from the rim of T7 are a light orangish-brown color, this best observed with a ventral view of the bee due to T7 being hidden by the rim of T6 and the long hairs thereof    1P. jonesi - The integument of the clypeus is primarily a yellowish-amber color - At its tip, the fused outer hind tibial spur is relatively slender and about equal in width to the tip of the inner tibial spur - The hairs arising from the rim of T7 are a very dark brownish color, this best observed with a ventral view of the bee due to T7 being hidden by the rim of T6 and the long hairs thereof
