Description and notes

BWARS has not yet produced an account for this species.

In recent years it has become apparent that the bee known as B. lucorum (Linnaeus, 1761) is in fact a species complex, containing two other species - B. magnus and B. cryptarum. Separation of the three species is very difficult, so that definitive records for any of the three species are rare.
