Masked Bee

Hylaeus (Euprosopoides) rotundiceps


Small Australian native bee. With distinctive markings on there face


Masked bees live in urban areas, forests and woodlands, and heath. Many species nest in twigs, branches and reeds. As a group they are more abundant and diversified in Australia than anywhere else in the world, probably because of the variety of eucalypt trees available for pollen and nesting. - ( from the Australian Museum Website)


Didn't realise this was a bee till I did a search on google.
