Andrena shawella (Kirby, 1802).
A small, rather unobtrusive bee, the female largely black, the male with the clypeus and lower paraocular areas mainly yellow.
Found throughout Britain, the range reaching north to the North Ebudes (Skye, Eigg and Rum; also reported in the 19th Century from an unspecified site in Harris) and Orkney (Dounby on Mainland). It is present in Ireland, on the Isle of Man and in the Channel Islands (Alderney). Very local, especially in southern England (where it is quite rare). This species is predominantly found in central and northern Europe and Asia, from Fennoscandia south to Austria, and eastwards to Turkey and Siberia; also known from Japan.
