Abstract

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.
