Anthophora (Lophanthophora) affinis Brullé, 1832
(=Anthophora biciliata Lepeletier,1841; =Anthophora liturata Lepeletier,1841)
Brooks (1988) initiated a very confusing situation in mixing this taxon with Anthophora mucida Gribodo.
These species are nevertheless well distinct. Rasmont (1996) made a complete redescription of both taxa and of the near Anthophora agama Radoszkowski.
