Variation.--In examples with fuliginous wings the abdomen, except the first two and last plates above and beneath, is generally black. The black may also encroach on the posterior part of the second segment and on the sides of the last one. Male.--Anterior margin of the clypeus extending obliquely downward and inward from the side, then transverse, slightly cmarginate, a little reflexcd; a faint trace of silvery pubescence sometimes present on the cheek just behind the eye, and another on the posterior end of the median segment or in some cases above the hind coxa; body rather more densely clothed than in the female; sixth and seventh ventral abdominal plates slightly emarginate behind; terminal ventral plate with its hinder border rounded at the sides, acuminate in the middle; terminal dorsal plate evenly rounded; the abdomen generally with an opalescent luster; generally black, but sometimes more or less ferruginous on the first, second, or both segments; legs usually entirely black. In other respects the male resembles the female. Length.--Females, 17-2-2 mm.; males, 13-19 mm.
