Distribution. Southern, central and eastern Europe northwards to about 51° northern latitude ( Albania, Austria, southern Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, southern and central Germany, Greece including Aegean Islands and Crete, Hungary, Italy including Sardinia and Sicilia, North Macedonia, southernmost Poland, Portugal, Romania, southernmost Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, southern Ukraine), Turkey, Caucasus ( Azerbaijan, Georgia), Levant ( Israel and Palestine, Jordan, Syria).

Pollen hosts. Polylectic with affinity for nototribic flowers of both Lamiaceae   (e.g. Acinos   , Ajuga   , Ballota   , Prasium   , Satureja   , Stachys   , Teucrium   ; Fig. 24 View FIGURES 24–33 ) and Antirrhineae   (e.g. Linaria   ) as well as for Fabaceae   (e.g. Lotus   , Onobrychis   , Trifolium, Genisteae   ) (Tab. 1). Additional pollen sources include Crassulaceae   , Cistaceae   (e.g. Cistus   , Helianthemum   ), Brassicaceae, Echium   ( Boraginaceae   ), Campanulaceae   , Plantago   ( Plantaginaceae   ) and Asteraceae   ( Cichorioideae   ). The females are equipped with a specialized pilosity on clypeus and frons composed of apically twisted bristles ( Fig. 25, 26 View FIGURES 24–33 ), which are used to comb pollen from the raised anthers of nototribic flowers ( Müller 1996).

Nesting biology. O. andrenoides   nests in empty snail shells of small to medium size (e.g. Cepaea, Cernuella, Helix, Pomatias, Theba, Xerolenta   or Zebrina   ), which are hidden at (semi-)shaded places under prominences of stones and rocks or under large flat stones ( Fig. 27 View FIGURES 24–33 ), which might explain the species’ distinct preference for rocky and stony habitats ( Ferton 1894, 1908; Stöckhert 1933; Popov 1954; Müller & Richter 2019; G. Le Goff personal communication). The females do not cover the surface of the nest shells with patches of leaf pulp after nest site selection. The nests contain 1 – 3 brood cells, which are separated from each other by one-layered partitions constructed from leaf pulp, e.g. of Helianthemum   ( Cistaceae   ) or Potentilla   ( Rosaceae   ) ( Ferton 1894; G. Le Goff personal communication). They are not sealed against their rear end with a basal wall. After completion of the outermost brood cell, the shells are barricaded towards the nest opening with densely packed earth crumbs, small stones and other particles followed by two adjacent walls of leaf pulp at the shell opening, which enclose a narrow interspace usually filled with few earth crumbs or small stones ( Fig. 28, 29 View FIGURES 24–33 ). In sealed nests, the closed shell orifice faces upwards or to the side, suggesting that the nest shells are not moved at the end of the nesting cycle. O. andrenoides   overwinters as a fully developed imago in a self-spun cocoon within the brood cell ( Müller & Richter 2019). Phenological data, which cover an extended period from early spring to early fall at some localities (see above and Özbek 2013), suggest that the species has two generations per year at more southern latitudes, such as southern Europe or mediterranean Turkey. Brood parasites: The chrysidid wasps Chrysis analis Spinola   , Chrysura cuprea (Rossi)   and Chrysura dichroa (Dahlbom)   develop as parasitoids in the nests of O. andrenoides   ( Berland & Bernard 1938; Rosa et al. 2017).
