ABSTRACT
Hylaeus punctatus (Brullé) (Colletidae; Hylaeinae), the second species of the Old World subgenus Spatulariella recorded in the Western Hemisphere, is reported in Canada for the first time. A diagnosis for recognizing the subgenus among the Canadian fauna and a key to distinguish the two species are provided. Additionally, we provide a brief summary of non-native bee species in Canada.
