Hylaeus hyalinatus (Smith, F., 1842)
One of several very similar Yellow-faced Bees, this Hylaeus hyalinatus was found in a Mapperley garden in early July 2016 and it has been recorded from Oak Tree Heath at Mansfield. Hylaeus Bees are difficult to identify to species level and it is important to photograph any facial patterns and markings, to aid any identification. The photographs show both female (top photographs) and male.
