2664RE: [beemonitoring] U.S. Osmia nesting habits
- Apr 2, 2013
Folks- Sam suggested that I post this to all of you. You will read that the nesting habits of many of our US Osmia species remain unknown, so especially if you find a ground-nesting species, or one in a gall, or a free-standing nest, it is worth documenting! There also remain surprises, such as dung nesting (also recently reported from Argentina for a different megachild genus).
