The moderate yellow maculations of clypeodenta-tum tend to become somewhat fuller in southern California but exceptions to this occur. The female is easily identified by the densely pilose scape. The male has, in addition to a distinctive tergum VII and sternum VI, a characteristic setal "brush" (fig. 68). The species is infrequently collected (32 $, 22 9 ) in California, and it has not been taken in long series. Typically it is a mountain species preferring legume flowers, particularly the genus Lotus.
