Osmia lignaria, commonly known as the orchard mason bee or blue orchard bee, is a megachilid bee that makes nests in reeds and natural holes, creating individual cells for its brood that are separated by mud dividers. Unlike carpenter bees, it cannot drill holes in wood. O. lignaria is a common species used for early spring fruit bloom in Canada and the United States, though a number of other Osmia species are cultured for use in pollination.

- Materials & Methods
- Two PacBio Sequel II cells with all gDNA from the same bee (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/biosample/SAMN14365276/) were assembled with the PacBio SMRTLink wrapper. The assembly was polished with 2 NextSeq 500 Illumina cells from a different bee (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/biosample/12250391).
