      Hi,

      There were good populations at Algonquin Park last spring (around the hiking trails along Hwy 60).  I was there looking out for B. terricola.  I'm sure there are even better populations in more remote regions of the park as well.

      Hello,

      I'm a graduate student studying Claytonia virginica (spring beauty) and it's specialist pollinator, Andrena erigeniae. I'm working in various locations this year, and would like to add to the list. If you know of a location that has a large population and/or high density of spring beauties, I'd really appreciate hearing about it! In particular, I am interested in relatively intact locations that would be conducive to fieldwork (state parks, reserves, etc), and I'm especially interested in populations in Georgia, Pennsylvania, New York, or southern Ontario.

      Thanks very much,
      Alison

      Hello Alison,

      Here at Catoctin Mountain Park in northern Maryland there is a good
      population of spring beauties. I even did some collecting of bees in an
      area where there are a lot of spring beauties using bowls. I have not IDéd
      the bees from that group yet, so I can't tell you if the bee you are
      interested in was among those collected. Feel free to contact me if you
      are interested in pursuing a research permit.

            Alison- The Bee Lab in Logan only has one bee databased from collections off of C. virginica. I have observed from a very limited collecting experience in the east that where you find C. virginica you will find A. erigeniae.

            I've inclued a excell sheet of the lab's sole record of collection from C. virginica as well as all of the locality data from GBIF's portal.

                        There are good populations of Spring Beauty at Great Falls Park in northern VA and also across the Potomac in the Carderock area of the C & O Canal in MD. I'm sure there are other parks in the Washington area which have good populations as well. You might check "Finding Wildflowers in the Baltimore Washington Area" by Cris Fleming and Marion Lobstein for additional locations. This is a little more than an hour away from Catoctin Mountain Park which Becky recommends.
               
                        I'm also curious why you call Andrena erigeniae, a specialist pollinator of Spring Beauty. It's specific name would imply that it pollinates Harbinger of Spring (Erigenia bulbosa) which blooms over a much shorter period and earlier than Spring Beauty (Claytonia virginica). Harbinger of Spring can be found at the two parks I've mentioned above and they are sometimes associated with Spring Beauty but Spring Beauty blooms over a much longer period and usually starts a little later.

                This is almost certainly one of the many cases where a bee was named for the plant it was first collected on, rather than something it was actually host specific to.  Calliopsis helianthi is an oligolege of Euphorbiaceae, not sunflowers; Andrena astragali is  a specialist on Zigadenus, not Astragalus and so forth.
