Rediscovering a Bee Species Last Seen In 1955

Researchers at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum have uncovered a specimen of a rare bee that was last found in the province more than 65 years ago.

The Macropis Cuckoo Bee specimen, Epeoloides pilosulus, was collected near Grasslands National Park, close to Wood Mountain. The rare bee is a nest parasite, or cuckoo, of oil-collecting bees of the Macropis group that is entirely dependent on the oil from a wildflower known as Fringed Loosestrife, or Lysimachia ciliata.
