Xylocopa caerulea

Xylocopa caerulea, the Blue Carpenter Bee, is a species of carpenter bee.

Description[edit]

Xylocopa caerulea is a relatively large species, reaching an average size of 23 millimetres (0.91 in). The thorax region of these insects are covered with light blue hairs, giving it a striking blue colour. The sides of the abdomen and first abdominal segments are also covered by similar, albeit a finer and thinner coat of blue hairs.[1][2][3]

Distribution[edit]

This species is widely distributed in Southeast Asia, India and Southern China. [4]
