Socotra Zoned-Furrow Bee (Patellapis flavovittata)

With just two days on the highest parts of Socotra’s Haghier mountains – Skant – I did not have much time to photograph insects in addition to the flora. But this bee entered during a photo session with this Trichodesma microcalyx. Talk about luck, as his is a very rare treat!

Both are endemic which means they exist only on Socotra.
