Coelioxys (Paracoelioxys) funerarius Smith 1854 

County records: Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Dickinson, Iron, Keweenaw, Lake, Marquette, Sanilac. 

Notes. Hosts include Megachile frigida ( Mitchell 1962)  , M. inermis Provancher  (Medler 1958; Sheffield et al. 2008), M. latimanus ( Graenicher 1927a)  , M. relativa  ( Fye 1965; Medler & Koerber 1958; Medler & Lussenhop 1968; Sheffield et al. 2008), and possibly M. rotundata ( Hobbs 1968)  , although the known host M. relativa  was also present in that study. In Michigan, both M. relativa  and M. inermis  are known hosts based on trap nest data ( Packer et al. 1995; Strickler & Scriber 1994).
