Eucera hirsutissima (Cockerell) was recorded from “British Columbia” by Cockerell (1916), Gibson (1918), and Hurd (1979) though no specific localities were provided. He (Cockerell 1916b) indicated that a second label, “Toba” was on the type specimen at the British Museum, suggesting Toba Inlet on Powell River (Sheffield and Heron 2019).
