      This is not a northern record, but I think I have found it at Mountain Lake Biological Station in Giles Co., Va.  Sam has not seen it yet. Can you tell me how to tell it for sure from O. cornifrons?

      On 1 May 2010 I caught a female Osmia taurus in a bee bowl in western Massachusetts (Montague, MA). Sam Droege confirmed the identification and mentioned that this was the most northern record to date. It would be interesting to hear of additional records O. Taurus north of Delaware (the previous northern record for this species) to get a sense of its northward progression.
