Overview

The following material taken with permission from: Mitchell, T.B. 1962. Bees of the Eastern United States, Volume II. North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. Tech. Bul. No.152, 557 p.

Heriades is a group of small, compact, more or less parallel-sided, black bees which are coarsely and deeply punctate. The basal abdominal tergum is broadly concave anteriorly, the margin of this concavity sharply carinate; the posterior face of the propodeum is perpendicular, but with a narrow, distinct, dorsal area which is deeply pitted; the matanotum forms a part of the dorsal surface of the thorax, posterior to the rounded scutellum; and the axillae are small abd inconspicuous. The notaulices of the scrotum are linear, and the pleura are not carinate anteriorly, but the prothoracic tubercles have distinct, transverse carinae. In the front wings both recurrent veins are received well within the base and apex of the 2nd submarginal cell, and the stigma is quite large. Arolia are present; the maxillary palpi are 3-segmented; the female mandibles are tri-dentate, those of the males be-dentate; and the abdominal terga have distinct, white apical fasciae. In the males the apical abdominal terga are strongly flexed, the margin of tergum 7 meeting that of sternum 3, with the sterna 4-8 retracted and modified.
