Identification
Extracted from THE POLLEN-COLLECTING BEES OF THE ANTHIDIINI OF CALIFORNIA (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) by GRIGARICK A., A. (1968).

Anthidium sonorense Cockerell, 1923. Proc. Calif. Acad. Sci., series 4, 12:91. Holotype $, Guaymas, Mexico (CAS). Anthidium sonorense productum Cockerell, 1923. Proc. Calif. Acad. Sci., series 4, 12:92. Holotype 9, San Jose Island, Gulf of California (CAS). NEW SYNONYMY. Anthidium rohweri Schwarz, 1927. Amer. Mus. Novitates, 253:7. Holotype &, Sacatan, Arizona (USNM). NEW SYNONYMY. Geographic range.—Arizona, southern Nevada, southern California, northern Baja California, Sonora, Mexico. California records.—IMPERIAL Co.: Calipartria, 10 mi. NW, 1 9, V-23-56 (T. Haig, UCD). Niland, 3 9, IV-27-49, on Larrea divaricata (J. Gillaspy, CIS). Salton Sea near Fish Spring, 2 6\ VI-15-28 (W. Thorbe, UCR). Westmorland, 15,3$ (M. Cazier, CIS, CAS). INYO CO.: Furnace Creek, 1 $, IV-27-56 (R. Bohart, UCD); 20 mi. S, 1 9, IV-8-39, on Prosopis (E. Linsley, UCR). RIVERSIDE Co.: Near Indio, 1 6\ VI-23-27 (P. Timberlake, UCR). SAN DIEGO Co.: Borrego Valley, 1 9, IV-18-57 (H. Moffit, UCD). California specimens of this bee are moderate in size and show extensive yellow maculations. The apical toothlike process on sternum VI (fig. 14) pro¬vides an easy means for recognizing the males of
sonorense. The females from California have two longitudinal submedian yellow stripes on the mesono-tum, which is unique for this species. There is some reduction of these stripes, as well as a reduction in the yellow metasomal bands, as the species extends southward, and the type of sonorense productum lacks the stripes completely. Tergum VI on the female (fig. 72) is similar to that segment of paro selae, but differences in the dentition of the mandi¬bles (figs. 99, 100) separate them. This species is restricted to hot desert regions and is sympatric with paroselae, dammersi, cockerelli, and palmarum but is less common (6 S , 9 9 ). Speci-mens have been collected at the flowers of two desert shrubs, Larrea and Prosopis
