A female Nomada obliterata in Washington, D.C. (4/23/2018). Collected and processed by Chelcey Nordstrom. "Some bees are just rare. Or, at least rarely found. This specimen here is the first known specimen from Washington D.C., where it was discovered at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, along the long neglected Anacostia River. Neglected but not absent of biodiversity. What is the obliterata part of its name about? It has to do with the fact that it normally 3 submarginal cells in the wing have been partially obliterated and but 2 remain." (S. Droege, pers. comm.) Photo by USGS PWRC. (MBP list)
