Detailed Description

One of the more uncommon to rare eastern bees in North America. Eucera fulvohirta is found in the arc of the continental coastal plain only from Louisiana to North Carolina. What plants does it feed on, what is its place in the natural history of the region. No one knows. This lovely lovely yellow orange specimen found by Sabrie Breland in the flatlands of South Georgia.
