Hairy Legged Mining Bee - Pluimvoetbij - Dasypoda hirtipes

The species will form nesting aggregations in bare or sparsely vegetated sandy or other friable soils and females collect pollen exclusively from composites (Asteraceae) especially yellow flowered species such as Ox-tongues Picris spp. and Ragworts Senecio spp.’ on Hawkweed Oxtongue
