Melitta dimidiata Morawitz, 1876



North Mediterranean species. In Slovenia only along the river Sava near Črnuče (pre-Alpine region), where it is probably extinct now.

Oligolectic, specialized on Onobrychis (Fabaceae). Nests in burrows in the ground, excavated by itself.

Univoltine. Flies from May to July.


Razširjenost vrste v Sloveniji.

Najdena je bila le na Jarškem produ ob reki Savi pri Ljubljani, vendar je tam skoraj gotovo izumrla.
