Essex Red Data List comment
cleptoparasite on Melitta spp.

Species text
This bee is a cleptoparasite of mining bees in the genus Melitta. It is very local and probably declined in most areas, except in Kent where most records are recent. The bee and its hosts favour a wide variety of flower rich situations on light soils, including heathland, chalk downland, sandpits, coastal landslips, soft rock cliffs, fixed dune and waste ground (Falk, 1991). In Essex records are mostly from locations in the East Thames Corridor. References
