Andrenidae: Andrena (Holandrena) cressoni cressoni Robertson

County Records: Alachua, Baker, Gadsden, Jackson, Leon, Liberty, Sarasota, Suwanee. LaBerge had it listed from only Leon and Liberty counties in Florida. The majority of the records from the FSCA are from the Northern tier of counties but the records from Alachua and Sarasota counties suggest that the species further south than thought.

Locations: Tall Timbers, Torreya State Park

Dates: March 13-May 6, March: 2, April: 7, May: 1


Notes: LaBerge considers this species to be variable, and it consists of the two subspecies that Mitchell lists separately, A. cressoni cressoni and A. cressoni tallahasensis. This species is distinguished by the extremely short, usually entire, labral process in the female and an attenuated tip of the eight sternum of the male. Both sexes usually have distinctly punctate terga.
