Threats [top]

Major Threat(s): The threats to this species are not known, although development of tourist infrastructure, and coastal shingle extraction may well be important in parts of the range.

Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Hylaeus euryscapus is listed in the National Red List or Red Data Book of Switzerland (Extinct; Amiet 1994), Czech Republic (Critically Endangered; Farkač et al. 2005), the Netherlands (Near Threatened; Peeters and Reemer 2003), Germany (Rare; Westrich et al. 1998, 2011), Great Britain (Rare; Shirt 1987) and Poland (Data Deficient; Banaszak 2002). The species is not subject to any targeted conservation action. The species does occur in protected areas. Further research is needed into the population size and trend, to identify the threats to this species and investigate the taxonomy.
