Male leafcutter bees are slightly smaller than females and have a squared end to their abdomen. The male leafcutter bees generally emerge a week or two ahead of the females, and wait close by to mate with the later emerging females. Both males and females will pollinate, however only the females will nest and produce the next generation of leafcutter bee cocoons.
