These small bees have a base color that is dark brown to black and markings that are yellow. The very broad lateral lobe of the male tergum VII (fig. 58) with the posterior margin subtruncate is diagnostic for the males except for utahense. The weakly developed lateral lobe of sternum VI (fig. 59) and weakly differentiated yellowish setal brush provides characteristics to separate it from utahense. The females have the clypeus nearly all black with contrasting yellow mandibles. Except for cockereUi, this combination is fairly distinctive for females. The five-toothed mandible of jocosum (fig. 98) differen¬tiates is from cockereUi and most other species of Anthidium in California. The California distribution of jocosum is mainly along the foothills of the Sierra Nevada and Coast ranges, and southern California. Collections totaling 70 males and 70 females show it to be associated with a wide variety of plants with no strong prefer¬ence indicated.
