4. Apis andreniformisHNS.

A. nigra laevis nitida; alis hyalinis; abdomine fasciis albis pubescentibus ornato.

Worker. Length 4 lines. Black: smooth and shining, slightly pilose; the face with a short cinereous pubescence; the metathorax, the coxae and femora beneath with whitish pubescence; the wings hyaline and iridescent; the basal margin of the second segment of the abdomen slightly rufo-piceous; the basal margins of the third, fourth, fifth and sixth segments with bands of white pubescence; beneath, the three basal segments of the abdomen pale testaceous in the middle.

Hab. Borneo (Sarawak).

This remarkable Honey-Bee has exactly the appearance of an Andrena; it does not appear to be a worn specimen; the wings are not torn, and the abdominal bands entire; the eyes are pubescent, but less conspicuously so than in any species I have previously seen.
