Nomada flavoguttata (Kirby,1802)
This diminutive Nomada (sometimes referred to as the Little Nomad Bee) is a cleptoparasite of the equally diminutive Andrena minutula. There are two broods per year, the first brood flying from around late March and into April. As with all of the Nomadas, identification to species can be very difficult. Seemingly not common in Nottinghamshire, but there will be an element of under-recording involved.
