A Roost of Male Nomia Bees
by Erica Siegel

Aussie Bee Homepage > New Native Bee Photos > Nomia Bees

Erica Siegel contributed this eye-catching photograph of a huge roost of male nomia bees (Lipotriches) at Redland City, Queensland. She says this was just a small section of the total roost!

Nomia bees nest in burrows in the soil. However, at night large numbers of males may roost together in the open, clinging to grass or dry vegetation. Nomia bees occur in all states of Australia.
