Species text
The mining bee Lasioglossum puncticolle is much declined inland (Falk 1991b) but still widespread in Essex near the coast. It seems to prefer dry clay substrates and bare or sparsely vegetated soil in warm, sunny situations for nesting. Pollen sources probably include Wild Carrot, Ranunculus, Cirsium and several yellow composites. References
