We here report the leaf-cutter bee Megachile (Eutricharaea) timberlakei Cockerell
1920 (Megachilidae) as a third bee species in the Gala´pagos. The species is currently
known from the Hawaiian Islands and was collected during floral inventories on San
Cristo´ bal. We provide floral records as well as a diagnosis and comparative
comments that will assist bee researchers to easily recognize this species from other
native and adventive Megachile Latreille to the Americas. We also discuss the
possible routes to the Gala´pagos.
