From Kruger National Park: Amegilla atrocincta. Amegillas come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but most are larger than honey bees. Most too are laddered with bold white stripes across the abdomen (A. atrocincta is a non-conformer) and throughout big chunks of the world these white stripes are replaced by lovely blue hairs giving them them the name blue-banded bee. This one was captured on Jonathan Mawdsley's expedition to South Africa in Kruger. Thanks much to our friend Silas Bossert for the id and picture (taken at the Smithsonian).

Sytyropha on white background. S. krigei to be specific from Kruger National Park in South Africa. This specimen was identified and photographed by Silas Bossert a bee researcher at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. They use similar systems to what we use, but prefer gray to white backgrounds, they are equally detailed. Silas is identifying a number of the specimens we captured a few years ago in Kruger and we are very much appreciative of his expertise. This species specializes on morning glories and carries pollen throughout its body rather than simply on the legs. It is also a sweat bee...interesting world.

The poster child for rare bees of concern in North America. This is Epeoloides pilosula, collected on David Wagner's study of the conservation landscape of transmission lines. This is a nest parasite of Macropis oil bees. In this study they found both M. nuda and M. ciliata uncommon bees in themselves. And, as a bonus the collected this one Epeoloides in New Hampshire. How uncommon are they really, hard to say....so few people collect bees and hunt for them in the specialized habitats that the rare ones inhabit. We have a problem of loss of habitat, but we also have a problem with loss

Golden Ragwort, Packera aurea. Common in Appalachia...and spotty on the coastal plains. Favored by Andrena gardineri...who feed their young only pollen from this plant. A nice ground cover plant for gardens, particularly shaded ones....Photo and specimens from Helen Lowe Metzman.

Ninebark. A lovely native shrub, that should be planted more often where there is a need for a large shrub. Grows well, is tough, handles drought, and it attracts pollinators. Photograph by Helen Lowe Metzman.

Sand. The Golden Sand Loving Bee. When I think of bees that are sand loving I think of Lasioglossum vierecki. For one, how nice to have a golden orange bee to look at. For second it is common in sandy areas...so if you are going to find a sand specialist in a sand mine, dune, beach, barren, sandhill in the Northeast there you will find this little orange bee. Thirdly it is easy to identify, which in the bee world is a bit of a blessing. This bad girl was discovered along a transmission line in Massachusetts by Michael Veit as part of David Wagner study of bees in these uncommon strip habitats.

Osmia georgica. Nests in holes. Hangs out on mid summer composites. Has orange pollen carrying hairs. Has boss knobs on the upper side of the mandibles (why?). This specimen found on Dave Wagner's transmission line study in New England by Michael Veit. All good.

Aptly named: Lasioglossum coeruleum. Most of the many confusing members of these small sweat bees glimmer discretely in metallic integument, but our friend here takes it up a notch to and Osmia level. This makes them identifiable...except for the problem that some of them are not so bright...irritating if you have to identify them...but once you get the pattern you feel a small sense of superiority to those in power in the world who clearly would fail if you asked them to identify an "off" specimen So there. Specimen collected by Michael Veit in transmission lines in CT...
