Tribe Erocrocidini (1 taxon)

    Only one genus of this group of parasitic bees is known from Florida. It is a disjunct population whose other populations occur far to the west (closest populations are in Texas). Since this species has been collected only once in Florida, its distribution is probably greater than the single county record listed below. Its host, Centris lanosa, occurs throughout Florida from the panhandle to the southern tip of the peninsula, with an additional endemic species of Centris, Centris errans, occurring in Miami-Dade and Monroe County.
