So I make a lot of mistakes. And this includes misidentifying things, even, yes, on this blog. Le sigh.
But I’m not afraid to admit it, and I try to correct it when I can. This is a post from three months ago…I thought I had Anthophora walshii, but you know what it was actually??? Peponapis pruinosa! The squash bee! Duh, I’m so dumb.
But Peponapis is supposed to be a specialist on squash and I never expected to see it on thistles, so I was ready to believe it was Anthophora. Anyway, my apologies, and I’m here to set the record straight.
