Overview

The following material taken with permission from: Mitchell, T.B. 1962. Bees of the Eastern United States, Volume II. North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station. Tech. Bul. No.152, 557 p.

Hoplitis is a genus of rather small, slender and parallel-sided species of bees, usually entirely black in color, although a few metallic species are found in the West. Characters common to both sexes are as follows: Basal abdominal tergum sulcate anteriorly; posterior face of propodeum sloping, without a dorsal pitted area, the metanotum partially forming the dorsal surface of the thorax posterior to the rounded scutellum; axillae very small and inconspicuous, not at all protuberant; notaulices of Scutum linear; pleura and tubercles not carinate; recurrent veins usually received well within base and apex of 2nd submarginal cell, the stigma large; arolia present; maxillary palpi usually 5-segmented. In the females the mandibles are either tri- or quadri-dentate, but are bi-dentate in all males. The abdominal sterna in the males are variously modified, 6-8 usually retracted.
