Moreover this specie is very rear in our area. Blue Banded Bee is an Australian native bee that belongs to the Anthophoridae family of insects. It's called Blue Banded Bee because of blue stripes on its abdomen . The male has five blue bands, while the female has four bands. Their head and thorax are covered with golden brown hair. They generally visit blue flowers and collect most of their nectar from blue flowers. They are also known as "Buzz pollinator" and have great significance for Agriculture.
