There are approximately 2000 species of native bees in Australia. The species themselves, their distributions and floral associations are all of interest. There is still much to learn about the Australian bee fauna.

    Seems late in the year for a native bee to be active here. About 10-12mm long.

    Hi Joanne, Yes it is right, Female Hylaeus Prosopisteron littleri (Cockerell). If Correa still in flowers and sunny days, this species can be found until June or more.
