A new species for the bee fauna of Italy: Dasypoda crassicornis (Friese, 1896) (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Melittidae: Dasypodainae)

Bonifacino, Marco

The first records of Dasypoda crassicornis (Friese, 1896) for Italy are reported. The species was found in three sites in western Liguria and Piedmont Cottian Alps, which thus extends its eastern range limit, previously known in France. The habitats at collecting sites and the wildflowers visited by the species are also described.

Une nouvelle espèce pour l’apidofaune d’Italie : Dasypoda crassicornis (Friese, 1896) (Hymenoptera : Apoidea : Melittidae : Dasypodainae)

Les premières données de Dasypoda crassicornis (Friese, 1896) pour l’Italie sont mentionnées. L’espèce a été trouvée sur trois sites dans l’ouest de la Ligurie et dans les Alpes cottiennes du Piémont, étendant ainsi la limite orientale de son aire de répartition, précédemment connue en France.
