Abstract

New records of the vinegar fly Cacoxenus indagator Loew, 1858 are reported from Sweden.
The species was collected from two sites in Lund, Scania in 2014. The fly is known as
a cleptoparasite of mason bees, Osmia spp., Megachilidae. The female Cacoxenus patrols
around the nests of the bees, and lays eggs inside the broodcell, when the bee leaves for
provisioning.
