    Default Bee ID

    Hi guys,

    I have a small doubt and maybe you can help me out.

    Is this a honey or a mason bee?

    Thanks a lot for you help.

    Yes it looks like one of the European mason bees. There is a guy on youtube called solitarybee. Look him up! He has lots of cool mason bees videos. He has lots of this species of mason bee.

    Based on wing venation I'm going to say that your bee is a honey bee worker Apis mellifera. http://bugguide.net/node/view/3080

    hmm i'd like a better look at its head and eyes and if you can spread the wings a little to see its second set are the slightly smaller or nearly missing. Looks little like a bee mimic from these pictures to me. not my science field but wings dont look right to me
