Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
Scientist Theo Zeegers has discovered a bee species, new in the Netherlands. He found it during fieldwork in Ede.
According to the entomologist – who studies insects – the discovery is quite special. …
Zeegers discovered the bee on an industrial estate in the Gelderland province town. “A remarkable place, but in a roadside along the ditch bank where many flowers grow.” He saw the creature among a number of European wool carder bees, which are common in the Netherlands. “There was such a weird beast in between them, that was the new species.”
In total there are now 361 species of bees in the Netherlands.
