Essex Red Data List comment
cleptoparasite on Andrena flavipes. Much increased in frequency during last decade.

Species text
This bee is a cleptoparasite of the local mining bee Andrena flavipes. It occurs in southern England, and was considered very local and probably declined by Falk (1991b) with most sites during the 1970s being on the south coast of Dorset. It has since spread to become an almost certain companion of the Andrena throughout much of its range, and is now widely distributed throughout southern England (Edwards & Telfer, 2002). References
