This species is commonly listed under the name Nomada xanthosticta (Kirby, 1802) in the British literature (the species name is now treated as a junior synonym of Nomada ferruginata (Linnaeus, 1767)).
A rare species, but formerly widely distributed in southern Britain. There were no records between 1949 and 1987. However, in recent years the species has undergone a resurgence, with confirmed records from Hampshire, Kent, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Middlesex, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Essex and Suffolk. This is a northern and central European species, becoming more sparsely distributed in the south.
