Walker (1871:56, 57) used the name Anthophora bimaculifera twice, each time for a female specimen. Dalla Torre (1896:260) notes both and apparently believed these to be different species; for one he used the name Podalirius bimaculifer, while for the other he created the new name Podalirius bimaculosus. At least one of these is now understood to be a junior synonym of Amegilla niveocincta (Smith, 1854)

ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
