Species text
Despite apparently being reasonably frequent in parts of Kent the mining bee Lasioglossum lativentre is very scarce in Essex, with records from only a thin scattering of sites, usually of single individuals. It may be more widely distributed than present records suggest, but in very small numbers where a suitable habitat mosaic survives in the agricultural countryside. Unlike many other aculeate Hymenoptera in Essex, it does not seem to be associated with sporadically disturbed flower-rich brownfield sites. It is likely to be threatened by further decline in the countryside of suitable forage and nesting habitats. References
