Cuckoo Bees have an economic interest and play an important role in ecosystems through pollination and as prey for other species. Narmadapuram is one of the most enriching and diverse areas for faunal diversity. The beauty of this place by the Adamgarh hills, which provides a natural habitat for many species, especially the Cuckoo Bee, and Diversity is one of the most abundant in this area due to the suitable and favorable environment for them. During the survey of Pahadia, Adamgarh hills, we observed the first time Cuckoo Bee in the area. It belongs to the Melectinilarge-sized apid bees. They are brood parasites of the related typical digger bees and occasionally visit flowers. As in other cuckoo bees, females can be easily distinguished from those of their hosts by the lack of scopae and other pollen-collecting adaptations. Their body hair is rather short and the abdomen lies flat against the exoskeleton.
