Identification
Extracted from Western Bees obtained by the American Museum Expeditions by Cockerell (1921).

This is the western representative of C. andreniformis Smith. Two males from Ouray, about 8500 ft. alt., July 11, 1919, and three males from Pagosa Springs, about 7400 ft. alt., June 23, 1919, are typical. One female from Estes Park, August 13, 1919, collected by Herbert F. Schwarz, is a variation with face-marks reduced, the lateral marks reduced to small spots. It thus approaches C. teucn'i Cockerell,. which may be an extreme form of rhodophilus; but the mandibles are entirely dark, not bright ferruginous in middle as in teucrii. The abdominal venter lacks the light reddish bands seen in teucrii. The localities just mentioned are in COLORADO.
