Called Willow Bee. "This is one of a clade of bees that only gather pollen from willows... [W]illows are one of the secret powerhouses of pollen and nectar in North America. Stands of which stick around for centuries and create consistent forage for these bees, which may be why willow flowers are green, lacking the color signal of other, more desperate, flowers" (S. Droege, pers. comm.).

There are 7 records in the project database.
