Andrena lauracea is a rare bee species from the United States. It has been collected twice in Carlinville, Illinois, once around 1897[1] and once in 1970–1972. There are also two putative specimens from Texas.[2]

The Carlinville specimens were collected on Sassafras variifolium (1897) and Prunus serotina (1970).[2]
