Distribution

Dufourea alpina   occurs in the Pyrenees and in the European Alps. Further it has been reported from the Balkan Peninsula ( Ebmer 1988).

Notes

Together with Panurginus montanus   , Dufourea alpina   was probably the most common solitary bee species during the investigation period. Especially the males can easily be recognized since they often take shelter in flowers as mentioned in Amiet and Krebs (2012).
