Lasioglossum (Dialictus) puteulanum Gibbs

Lasioglossum (Dialictus) puteulanum Gibbs, 2009 a: 25 View Cited Treatment . Ƥ 3.

Holotype. Ƥ USA, Florida, Palm Beach Co., N 26.34889 W 80.2756, 25.i. 2005 (S.W. Droege); [ PCYU].

Diagnosis. Female L. puteulanum can be recognised by the following diagnostic combination: tegula enlarged, strongly punctate with distinct posterior angle; head relatively long (length/width ratio = 0.95–1.10); head and mesosoma usually deep blue; and mesepisternum with strong microsculpture between punctures. They are similar to L. tegulare and L. lepidii which are both primarily green with shorter heads (length/width ratio = 0.85 –1.00).

Male L. puteulanum also have an enlarged tegula and can be distinguished from similar species by T 2 densely punctate immediately basal of premarginal line and facial tomentum dense on lower paraocular area but sparse on remainder of face. They are most similar to L. tegulare and L. lepidii . Male L. tegulare have less tomentum distributed outside of the lower paraocular area. Male L. lepidii have dense facial tomentum, which obscures the clypeus. Range. Alabama, Florida north to southern North Carolina. USA: AL, FL, GA, NC, SC, TN. DNA Barcode. Available. Multiple sequences.

Comments. Common. See Gibbs (2009 a).
