Lasioglossum calceatum nesting aggregations and specimens

Hello,

Does anyone know the location of a Lasioglossum calceatum nesting aggregation? I'm studying their social behaviour for my PhD and need to locate nesting aggregations throughout Britain.

I am also interested in the size of L. calceatum females from different areas of the UK. I would be interested in receiving a sample of females (up to 10) from individual locations, or just recorded head widths (width at widest point including the eyes) if you already have confirmed specimens and are able to measure them.

Many thanks,

Paul

I have a location in Bristol where last Aug and Sept there were about 50 over a period of 4 weeks. They are likely to be there again this year. If you want to know more, email me on martin@ammonite.co.uk
