Early mining bee

Length 8 to 11 mm. The thorax is foxy brown on top; the abdomen is black, except for the rear end, which is foxy brown again. The male is much smaller than the female and its hairs are much lighter colour, tending to grey or even white.

Around potential nesting sites such as gardens, playgrounds, sports fields, paths and the sides of roads.
