Description

The bee is yellow and has a very thick and pale fur located on the thorax. It has black markings on the lower part of the body. It has one pair of transparent long wing. The bee has two black eyes and antennas. It's antennas are very short and thin. The eyes are in an oval shape. This type of bee is attracted to brightly colored flowers like yellow. The bee can sting many other insects if they try to consume him because that is it's defense mechanism.
