Genus: Afroheriades Peters, 1970
Common name: none
Afroheriades are small black, coarsely punctate bees that range in body length from 4–8.5 mm. Two species groups are present in Afroheriades: the Afroheriades primus species group and the A. larvatus species group. Species in the former have a robust body form, whereas those of the second group have slender and elongate bodies (Michener 2007).
(modified from Michener 2007 unless otherwise stated)
Afroheriades is most similar to Pseudoheriades; however, they differ in that Afroheriades has a rounded pronotal lobe and omaulus, and the males lack a mid-apical spine on S3 (Griswold and Gonzalez 2011). Afroheriades can be separated from all other Osmiini by the combination of characters above.
There are no known invasives.
