|Description||Hermaphrodite! (aka a gynandromorph) This Agapostemon texanus or angelicus (species can't be determined here) is part male and part female. This happens in I think all animals and I have seen about 5 of these after looking at about 400,000 bee specimens. This one was brought in by Tim McMahon after he collected it in Arizona. Mostly this specimen is female in aspect except for the following: Half of the clypeus (the front plate of the head) is male, half female (bilaterally) similarly one mandible is male and one female. The male has 6 tergites like the female, but the coloration is mostly male, which is brownish, but, interestingly there are some spots on the abdomen that are metallic green which is female. Photographs by Elizabeth Garcia.
