Dasycolletes curvipes * Friese 1924: 217 ; Cockerell, 1934: 9. syn.n.

Leioproctus (Goniocolletes) ruficaudus * Michener 1965: 66 . [replacement name for rufiventris , preoccupied by Leioproctus rufiventris Spinola, 1852 ]. syn.n.

Leioproctus (Goniocolletes) similior * Michener 1965: 66 [replacement name for Goniocolletes simillimus (Rayment,1935) , preocuppied by Euryglossa similla Smith, 1879 , now in Leioproctus (Euryglossidia) , and Paracolletes simillimus Cockerell, 1916c now in Leioproctus (Leioproctus) ] syn.n.

The holotypes of Goniocolletes morsus , Goniocolletes pallidus , Dasycolletes curvipes , Goniocolletes simillus and Goniocolletes proximus are all male and are the same as those males associated with Paracolletes abdominalis by coincident collection data and morphological similarity. The holotype of Dasycolletes rufiventris is female and shows no significant difference to that of Paracolletes abdominalis .

Head —Facial fovea strongly impressed dorsally, ill-defined ventrally; scape black; mandibles black, slightly reddened towards the tip malar space narrow length about 0.3 x width of base of mandible; hair of face white; frons hair brown. Mesosoma — Hair pale brown; propodeal triangle with rough basal area, several transverse carina most about the same strength and incomplete medially, vertical area not polished; 7–8 long teeth on inner hind tibial spur; basitibial plate completely obscured by dense, branched hairs. Metasoma— Gradulus indistinct; postgradular area translucent; hair white, T1 hair long, moderately dense, branches weak; T2–4 with complete apical hair bands; caudal fimbria very dense, pale brown; pygidial plate broad, rounded apically, median area raised. Male — As for female except as follows: Length 11–14 mm. Head— Face completely covered in golden appressed hair, scape black, polished, almost hairless; flagellum yellow ventrally, black dorsally, segments simple; mandibles pale yellow with reddened tips, labrum pale yellow with darkened medial area, no defined apical area, shallowly convex; beard dense, long, golden. Mesosoma — Integument black, legs pale yellow and black; hair golden.
