Description

Female visiting Eryngium.

This female seems to be pretty typical of the population I see locally: fairly large posteromedial spot on the scutum; strong discal spots on tergum 1 and tergum 2; apical fascia on terga 1, 2, 4 and 5, but narrow marks limited to the lateral area of tergum 3.

Visible mites (see especially the last image) seem to eliminate the always pesky possibility of confusion with Stenodynerus.

Male visiting Eryngium.

Male magaera can have white tibiae, but schwarzi can't have black tibiae, so this one must be magaera. See Buck et. al., https://cjai.biologicalsurvey.ca/bmc_05/31e_megaera.html.
