Collections were conducted in Nov-Feb 2016/2017 and Oct-March 2017/2018 across 14 sites, seven of which were bushland remnants, and seven of which were residential gardens.
Abundance of each species, for each sex, are presented.
Species were collected by Kit S. Prendergast with a sweep-net, blue and yellow vane traps, and blue and yellow vane traps (refer to: Prendergast, K. S., Menz, M. H. M., Dixon, K. W., & Bateman, P. W. (2020). The relative performance of sampling methods for native bees: an empirical test and review of the literature. Ecosphere, 11(5), e03076. doi:10.1002/ecs2.3076)

Body size categories are small (S): 0.48-1.78 mm ITD, medium (S): 1.79-3.10 mm, large (L): 3.11-4.41 mm. Categories were based on subtracting the minimum body size, as measured by intertegular distance (ITD), from the maximum and dividing by three.
