Bee - Epeolus Bee - Epeolus Bee - Epeolus

Moved from Epeolus.

Probable ID by author of revision. If correct, this extends the known range far to the NE and is a first record for OK.

Colletes host unknown (please post any candidates)

Parasitic cuckoo bee.
This ought to be interesting! I can hardly wait for John Ascher to give this a genus name:-)

I think this will be either
Epeolus or Triepeolus. I would lean for the former, but this is a complex group.

I agree, most likely Epeolus
I don't know this species

Thank you Richard, John and Eric,
Thanks for the ID.
