Apis hillana Kirby, 1802, Apis ochrostoma_homonym Kirby, 1802, Nomada vidua Smith, 1844, Nomada punctiscuta Thomson, 1870, Nomada simillima Pérez, 1913, Nomada dzieduszyckii Noskiewicz, 1924
A rather small, predominantly red Nomada with yellow spots on the gastral tergites.
Widely but very locally distributed throughout much of Britain as far north as Elgin. Also recorded from Ireland in O’Connor et al. (2009). The only Channel Island record is from Sark (Beavis, 2000). Not a common bee but very occasionally quite numerous where found.
In mainland Europe, the range of this species extends from Fennoscandia to Turkey. It has also been collected in Morocco.
