Essex Red Data List comment
Cleptoparasite on Andrena clarkella. Recorded from the Colchester district by Harwood (1884) rare, about burrows of Andrena clarkella and noted again by Nicholson (1928). Until 2012, when Dr Jeremy Dagley found the species with a colony of its host in Epping Forest, there were no recent records. However the host is still fairly numerous in several localities and probably under-recorded. (Harvey & Plant, 1996).
