Essex Red Data List comment
cleptoparasite on Lasioglossum minutissimum

Species text
Sphecodes longulus is a cuckoo bee cleptoparasitic on mining bees of the genus Lasioglossum, probably usually L. minutissimum. It is locally frequent in Kent and the East Thames Corridor, but is otherwise exceedingly scarce and apparently declined with post-1970 records from single sites in S. Hampshire, W. Sussex and W. Norfolk (Falk 1991b). References
