Chimney Bee Wing Vein Comparison
John, this may be useful information. Please note the two, small parallel lines bordering what I think is her second submarginal cell. I believe that these lines are called the 1st & 2nd transcubital veins. This cell appears to be very square or rectangular, in shape. Now please take a look back at this old image of a different kind of female Chimney Bee, from Nevada:
OK, I see that she is in another sub-genus grouping, so this may not be helpful.

Her cell seems much more triangular and those lines are not parallel. I also noticed that her abdomen is very hairy, for a female of this genus, but I know that it can get much colder in Nevada.
Please let me know if this information is helpful and feel free to use my images an any way, if it helps the BugGuide. Thanks
