Genus: Saucrochile Gonzalez & Engel, 2019
Common name: none
Saucrochile are small, elongate bees with shiny black integument and white apical hair bands on the terga. They range in body length from 8–11mm. The genus name is based on the Greek words “saukros” and “chile,” which can be translated to “graceful” and “tooth,” respectively (Gonzalez et al. 2019).
(modified from Gonzalez et al. 2019)
Saucrochile may look similar to some species of Hackeriapis in size, coloration, and elongate body shape. Saucrochile differs in the lack of a basal tooth on the tarsal claws and the rounded pronotal lobe (Gonzalez et al. 2019).
