Description:

I haven't seen a mining bee like this one before. Is there a species which has so much white on it or is this individual unusually coloured? I don't think it can be old as it's so near the beginning of Spring! The last photo shows a smaller bee which the white-striped one was fighting with!

Distribution of Andrena cineraria

I've just looked at a distribution map for this species and it doesn't seem to have been recorded in my area before. Please could someone from BWARS let me know how I could go about adding my observation?
