Notes

Little is known about the distribution or specific biology of this species. The original type material was collected and described from Chase and Woodson Counties in Kansas, with additional records recently from Illinois ( Snelling and Rozen 1987, Ascher and Pickering 2017). Images of the collection labels from Woodson County specimens indicate that they were collected from Amphiachyris dracunculoides  D.C. Nutt ( GBIF 2017a). All known members of this group are cleptoparasitic nest associates of Exomalopsis  spp. ( Rozen 1984).

Eight specimens were collected by malaise trap during the fall (autumn) of 2016 in Tallahatchie National Wildlife Refuge, located near Phillip, Mississippi in Tallahatchie County (Fig. 5). The malaise traps were located not far from each other on the shore of an oxbow lake filled with emergent vegetation.
