Explanation of Names
T. clavatum johannis, T. collinum collinum, or T. tridentatum archboldi
These three regional subspecies have extensive red markings not found in any other species of Trypoxylon. These red markings include the antennae, clypeus, mandible, pronotum, legs, propodeum, and first two segments of the abdomen. They are separated as follows:(1)

T. tridentatum archboldi is readily distinguished by the two spines or tubercles on the propodeum that are not found in any of our other species of Trypoxylon (Trypargilum).

T. clavatum johannis is distinguished by a spine on the hind trochanter. The metapleural flange is also broad.

T. collinum collinum lacks spines in both regions. The metapleural flange is also narrow.
