Species text
This mining bee is recorded widely in England, but is extremely scarce and apparently declined, with post-1970 records for only six sites in Falk (1991b). It is very rare in Essex. P.R. Harvey has identified a male collected by Kate Hawkins at St Osyth in 1983 and has found the bee at Wormingford Mere in 1995, when it was foraging in numbers on buttercup flowers, at Alphamstone Pits (1996) and Stanway Hall Farm Pit (1998). Its presence at Sergeants Orchard suggests that it may be present over a wider area in this part of Essex. References
