Translated from the Dutch entomologists of EIS Kenniscentrum Insecten:

Monday, September 21st, 2015

After an apparent absence of nearly 40 years, the Stelis signata bee has been seen again in the Netherlands. In the Salland hills this presumably extinct species has been recorded. Spectacular, certainly because the species has never been found before in Overijssel and has previously been seen mainly in North Brabant and Limburg.
