Lasioglossum (Dialictus) lepidii (Graenicher)  

Halictus (Chloralictus) lepidii Graenicher, 1927: 204   . Ƥ 3.

Holotype. Ƥ USA, Florida, South Miami, 20.iv. 1927 (S. Graenicher); [ NMNH:]. Examined.

Taxonomy. Michener, 1951: Lasioglossum (Chloralictus) lepidii   , p. 1114 (catalogue); Mitchell, 1960: Dialictus tegularis   Ƥ 3, p. 423 (synonymy); Gibbs, 2009 a: Lasioglossum (Dialictus) lepidii   Ƥ 3, p. 22 (redescription, key).

Diagnosis. Both sexes of L. lepidii   have tegula enlarged and strongly punctate with strong posterior angle ( Fig. 7 View FIGURE 7 A). Female L. lepidii   are most similar to L. tegulare   but have extensive tomentum on the paraocular area. Male L. lepidii   have the clypeus nearly entirely obscured by tomentum whereas similar species have the clypeus nearly bare.

Range. Florida.

DNA Barcode. Available. Multiple sequences.

Comments. Uncommon.

Until recently, L. lepidii   was considered a junior synonym of L. tegulare   . For a complete taxonomic treatment see Gibbs (2009 a).
