A. paroselae is a small- to moderate-sized species with extensive yellow maculations. It is related to sonorense in having sternum VI (fig. 11) with ven-trally directed lateral lobes in the male. Females of both species have a Iabrum without submedian pro¬tuberances and the posterior marginal band of Ter-gum VI is restricted to the median one-third. Both paroselae and sonorense are restricted to the desert The male of paroselae lacks the conspicuous apical process on sternum VI so characteristic of sonorense. The female is also very distinct from sonorense in having the preapical teeth of the mandible (figs. 99, 100) nearly congruent and in lacking the submedian yellow stripes on the mesonotum. A. maculosum has certain of the above mentioned characteristics in common with both species, but the sparse punctation of the frons and elongate flagellomere I of maculosum are obvious differences. A. paroselae is infrequently collected (37 i , 47 9 ) in the Colorado and Mojave deserts and the Owens Valley of California. It has been associated with species of five plant families and most frequent¬ly with members of the Compositae. Newberry (1900) reported that paroselae females nest in hard sand and that down is used in lining the cells and closing the nest.
