Chimney Bee
Diadasia subgenus Coquillettapis

Diadasia bee
This tiny bee inside Globe Mallow caught my eye because it was so beautifully
marked. Diadasia Bees are famous for building little turrets or chimneys
after digging a nest in the ground. "Cute as a button" is this bee I found on
Antelope Island, Davis County, Utah.  © Carol Davis 5-30-2017
