Anthophora angustula ZETTERSTEDT 1838; Osmia vankovitzii RADOSZKOWSKI 1887; Osmia hyperborea TKALCŮ 1983
One of three brown and black-haired Osmia bees (O. inermis, O. parietina and O. uncinata) with an arctic-alpine distribution. Saunders (1896) does not distinguish between these three species.
Restricted to the north and west of Britain, this is the most widely distributed of the three species. Modern records are known from western and northern Wales, north-western England and southern and northern Scotland. It is widely distributed in northern Eurasia, from Fennoscandia south to central Spain and east to Greece and eastern Russia.
