Andrena female: Taeniandrena ? Notandrena ?

Andrena female: Taeniandrena ? Notandrena ?

Postby rafael_carbonell on 31 Oct 2015, 16:10

This bee was feeding on blackberry (Rubus) flowers this summer in a field margin in an oak forest domain.
The first impression was it could be an Halictus, but the angle on basal veins is quite different.
So I have no idea what genus could this be. :roll:

The cream anal hairs, the interrupted tergite narrow bands looks like Andrena proxima, could be this species?
But also (Taeniandrena) species...

Definetively not A. proxima or related species. But I cannot recognize any species here.

It's difficult even to identify it to the subgenus level, perhaps Notandrena :?:

Thank you very much,
The bees of the World is now online so I will try to identify my specimens a least to subgenus level:
