Anthophora monacha ERICHSON
Southern England from Dorset to Kent, north to Oxfordshire, and East Norfolk. Also recorded from the Channel Islands (Jersey (Saunders 1902), Herm (Richards 1979), Guernsey and Sark). There are several records from outside this distribution range, though these are unconfirmed and are likely to be based on misidentifications (these are omitted from the distribution map). This bee has undergone a rapid and largely unexplained decline in Britain. In the last two decades it has been reliably recorded from just six sites in Dorset, Wight, North Hants, East Sussex and North Essex. The species is widely distributed in western Europe.
