Species text
Andrena labialis has shown a marked decline nationally and for that reason is a proposed UKBAP species. It is a mesotrophic meadow species with a strong association with legumes (Fabaceae), from which the females collect pollen. In Essex the bee is still widespread in the Thames Corridor and elsewhere near the coast, where there is an abundance of suitable forage. References
