Andrena rufitarsis homonym Zetterstedt, 1838, Andrena (Euandrena) ruficrus rubicrus Hirashima, 1957

It is unusual in being a northern species, and probably because of this its biology is rather poorly known, historically there being fewer people interested in aculeates in the northern parts of these islands.
Northwards from Yorkshire, with scattered records over much of Scotland.
It occurs in central and northern Europe, eastwards to the Caucasus. Also known from
