Identification
"The female of cleodora is similar to that of cupreotincta in the black scopae, black hairs of the head and abdomen, long apical tergal areas and coarse sculpture. The female of cleodora can be distinguished from that of cupreotincta by the apical tergal areas being almost impunctate"

"A. cleodora exhibits a clearly marked, geographical race in southern California which is recognized below as a subspecies.
"females of this subspecies are readily recognized by having the vestiture entirely black."
