Panzer’s Nomad Bee

Nomada panzeri


Body length 7 - 12mm. Very like Nomada flava but the female has silvery rather than yellow hairs on the sides of the thorax. The males are almost impossible to separate.


A wide variety of habitats are used but there is a strong association with woodland.

Status and distribution

Fairly common and widespread in England and Wales. Fairly common in Nottinghamshire and recorded once at Netherfield Lagoons.

Best time to see

April to June.
