Essex Red Data List comment
cleptoparasite on Andrena carbonaria group

Species text
Nomada fulvicornis is a cuckoo bee that has important populations in Essex along the East Thames Corridor and near Colchester. The species was formerly widely distributed in southern England, but it is today very scarce (Falk, 1991b). It is cleptoparasitic on Nationally Scarce mining bees in the Andrena carbonaria group, here almost certainly Andrena pilipes, a bee that forages for example on yellow crucifers and bramble flowers.
