The broadly truncate posterolateral margin of sternum VI (fig. 26) is distinctive for the males. Also, the spiniform lateral lobe of tergum VII is an important key character, as this extreme condition is found only in maculosum and edwardsii. The females have a distinctive tergum VI (fig. 86) with the dorsolateral extension forming an acute tooth curved medianly. This is duplicated only in maculosum which has sparse mac-ropunctation of the frons and a restricted posterior marginal band on tergum VI.

A. banningense is moderately abundant in California collections (85 6 , 110 2 ), and shows a preference for montane environments. Plant visitations include five families with a slightly greater frequency indicated in the Hydrophyllaceae. The chrysidid Chrysis florissanticola was reared from a banningense nest in Utah by Jaycox (in litt).
