Description

This species was making a lot of visits to the Santa Barbara Jewelflower, would push its head into the flowers for nectar, pull out, clean its eyes with its forelegs, and fly off to another flower.

Description

Captured on flowers of Lyonothamnus floribundis subsp. aspleniifolius. Anthidium and Osmia were present at this locality in very high numbers (cleptoparasite of these taxa).

Some photos make integument appear blue, but looks shiny black under the scope.
