Anthophora (Heliophila) - Anthophora curta - Female
Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, Claremont, Los Angeles County, California, USA

I believe this to be the same species (albeit in a different flower, Erigeron) as the one posted here:


I'm in the process of developing more information on the bees frequenting Rancho Santa Ana Bot. Garden.

Many thanks, John,
for all of the updates!!!

this is probably also A. squammulosa
"I'm in the process of developing more information on the bees frequenting Rancho Santa Ana Bot. Garden"

It would be interesting to compile T. D. A. Cockerell's historical records from Claremont

 
Now known as curta
-

 
Thanks, John -
I just submitted another one which seems to be also A. curta. Would appreciate your opinion:

 
Thanks, John,
where do I access those, probably spread over numerous publications?
Perhaps also in the Cockerell references given by Michener (2007).
Any suggestions?

 
This link lists many Cockerell papers:
http://osuc.biosci.ohio-state.edu/hymenoptera/taxon_catalog.list_publications_by_author?id=279

Cockerell described many new species from specimens collected at Claremont by Baker in major publications such as:

1916. New and little known bees from California. Pomona Journal of Entomology and Zoology 8: 43-64.

All the bees described in this paper are from Clareont or the vicinity.

And in many other shorter papers such as:

1916. Some California bees. The Canadian Entomologist 48: 391-393.

Note that Baker material can now be found in several collections including the Cal. Academy.

Here is a very useful link:

You can download a biography of Cockerell and a complete list of the species he described.

 
Thanks for all information
and links!
