Notes

The recent revision of Triepeolus  lists the current distribution of this species as including Arizona, California, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas (east to Smith County) and Utah and south into México ( Rightmyer 2008). Specimens have been taken from 4 May through 12 October and observed on a variety of host plants ( Rightmyer 2008). This group is also cleptoparasitic, with T. subnitens  observed entering a burrow of Svastra (Epimelissodes) obliqua  (Say) ( Hurd et al. 1980).

The three specimens reported from Mississippi were all females (Fig. 6) and collected during 2015 and 2016 in two counties (Sharkey and Sunflower). They were taken from both Helianthus  sp. and from a blue vane trap located within a soybean field.
