Species text
There are scattered records in southern England, but it is an extremely scarce species, which has declined substantially (Falk 1991b). It occurs in a variety of situations including coastal landslips and soft rock cliffs and inland on heathland, along country lanes with hedgebanks and other disturbed sandy situations. There is a close association with umbellifers, from which females collect pollen. In Essex the bee is very rare. It occurred in numbers at Mill Wood Pit (Thurrock), but the site has been destroyed and little habitat remains. The only other Essex records are from Yardley Hill in Epping Forest (Hanson 1992), Davy Down in Thurrock (A. Knowles, 2003) and of singletons from Good Easter, Alphamstone Pits and a number of other sites. References
