A new exotic bee has been discovered in NSW, Australia. It is a beautiful emerald green and gold. Have you heard of the Emerald Furrow Bee (Halictus smaragdulus) which is originally from the Mediterranean?
Volunteers have been tracking the populations of this bee in the Upper Hunter Valley.
We will publish more updates on the research here.
