Essex Red Data List comment
forages on Daucus

Species text
Records of this bee are largely confined to the south-central and south-eastern counties of England, with about 30 known post-1970 sites known to Falk (1991a), over half in Kent. In Essex the bee is mostly found near the Thames in post-industrial habitats and disused mineral extraction sites where Carrot Daucus carota or other white umbellifers occur in quantity. There is a close association with these flowers, especially Carrot, from which the bee collects pollen to provision its cells. Nesting is reported in herbaceous stems and the dead stems of bramble.
