A friend gave me some bees that were collected from _Calochortus
macrocarpus_, the sagebrush mariposa lily, in eastern Washington.  One
species, thought to be the primary pollinator, seems to be an anthophorid.
A number of individuals of the other species, which I think is a
megachilid, were found dead in the flower, an odd occurrence in the mind of
the collector (who's a botanist).

Is anyone on this list interested in this?
