This is one of the smallest species of Nomada and is widely distributed throughout Britain. A very common bee, although, owing to its very small size, it is easily overlooked.
Widely distributed throughout Britain, from southern England north to the Isle of Man and northern Scotland (Golspie, East Sutherland). In Ireland it occurs from Cork to Armagh and Down (Stelfox, 1927; Ronayne & O’Connor, 2003). Jersey is the only island in the Channel Islands where it has been reported, though not since 1903.
The Palaearctic range encompasses southern Fennoscandia, much of central and southern Europe east to Israel, Daghestan and Japan.
