Commonly known as the blue banded bee is an Australian native bee.
Currently, there are several scientific organisations conducting thorough research on how the blue banded bee benefits agriculture through its distinctive "buzz pollination". These bees are very important for the production of food and contribute to at least 30% of crops in Australia.
Female has four bands while the male has five.
