''Dasypoda hirtipes'' is a mining bee. The females have unmistakable large orange brown hairbrushes at the hindlegs. With these brushes the females collect pollen from yellow ''Asteraceae''. The females are nesting in, sometimes large, nest aggregations. Each female has her own burrow, and the sand from excavation is left as a wall around the entrance of the burrow.
