occurrenceRemarksEricrocis lata bees are cleptoparasites of other digger bees, that is, they lay their eggs in other bees' nests and their larvae eat the food of the host larvae. Host bees include ones from the genus Centris and Andrena. This cute little bee was on the tiny flowers of Verbena halei near the north power line at the Fort Worth Nature Center. It was only 7 mm long, and I would not have seen it except I was working on macro shots of the Verbena and it was sitting on the stem I was studying. Apparently rather rare or just extremely inconspicuous and hard to see.
