          Abstract

          Insect surveys of developed areas can provide important new species records as these areas are often under-surveyed and assumed to have low biodiversity. These surveys are of increasing importance as fragmentation and habitat conversion further alters the biosphere. We report a new state species record from Virginia: five Hylaeus (Paraprosopis) pictipes Nylander, 1852 (Hymenoptera, Colletidae). Field surveys in Richmond and the surrounding areas found this species from 28 April to 5 August 2019. This is the furthest south H. pictipes has been recorded on the east coast of the USA.
