This study presents comprehensive data about the biology of the rare cleptoparasitic European bee species Epeoloides coecutiens (Fabricius, 1775). The phenology and behavioral patterns observed at several localities are described; new information about floral resources (22 species) of E. coecutiens is presented. A new host bee, Macropis fulvipes Fabricius, 1804, is confirmed for E. coecutiens. The differences in color vision of humans and bees affect the interpretation of E. coecutiens floral preferences.
