Distribution. From Morocco northwards to southern Spain and southern and central Portugal. To the present knowledge,the range of O. uncicornis   in Spain does not overlap with that of the more easternly distributed O.balearica   .

Pollen hosts. Oligolectic on Fabaceae   (Tab. 1; Haeseler 2008; Baldock et al. 2018) with strong preference for Loteae (e.g. Lotus   , Hippocrepis   ); additional pollen hosts are species of Trifolieae (e.g. Medicago   ).

Nesting biology. O. uncicornis   nests in excavated, 3–5cm long burrows in loose sandy ground, often in small aggregations ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES 1–7 ; Haeseler 2008). At the end of the burrow, one to several urn-shaped brood cells are constructed immediately beside each other ( Fig. 3 View FIGURES 1–7 ). The nest entrance is often near dead plants, whose roots serve to fix the cells in the ground. The cells are entirely made of leaf pulp. Brood parasites: Dioxys ardens Gerstaecker   and possibly Stelis ortizi Schwarz & Gusenleitner   ( Haeseler 2008; Baldock et al. 2018).
