Nomada ferruginata (Linnaeus,1767) is listed as Endangered (RDB1) in the British Red Data Book.
It is a rare species, but formerly widely distributed in southern Britain. There were no records between 1949 and 1987. However, in recent years the species has undergone a resurgence, with confirmed records from Hampshire, Kent, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Middlesex, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Essex and Suffolk, and now Cambridgeshire.
This is a northern and central European species, becoming more sparsely distributed in the south.
