Subject: [Suspected Spam] [beemonitoring] Sapyga quinquepunctata
Someone just posted photos on Facebook of what looks to be Sapyga quinquepunctata, collected recently in Pennsylvania. Given that this is an Old World species that attacks Osmia, it could be of some concern should it be established in the US. Does anyone here know of any other information that might be pertinent? Has someone recently introduced any European Osmia in the northeast?
