Nesting Biologies and Immature Stages of the Tapinotaspidine Bee Genera Monoeca and Lanthanomelissa and of Their Osirine Cleptoparasites Protosiris and Parepeolus (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Apinae)
Abstract The nesting biologies of Monoeca haemorrhoidalis (Smith) and Lanthanomelissa betinae Urban (Tapinotaspidini) are described from southeastern Brazil. Both are ground nesting; the nests of the
The first cases of gynandromorphism in oil‑collecting bees (Hymenoptera, Apidae: Centridini, Tapinotaspidini)
TLDR
Described gynandromorphs of two species oil-collecting bees: Lophopedia nigrispinis and Epicharis iheringii, both with partial bilateral phenotypic asymmetry, both of which have a female phenotype predominantly on mesosoma and metasoma.
Amazonian species within the Cerrado savanna: new records and potential distribution for Aglae caerulea (Apidae: Euglossini)
TLDR
A. caerulea distribution significantly increased towards the Cerrado according to both MaxEnt and GARP algorithms, which are important dispersal alternatives for several species dwelling the Amazon and the Atlantic forest.
Revision and phylogeny of the bee genus Paratetrapedia Moure, with description of a new genus from the Andean Cordillera (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Tapinotaspidini)
TLDR
A comprehensive study was carried out to review the taxonomy of the genus Paratetrapedia and to investigate cladistically the relationships amongst its species.
Floral oil collection by male Tetrapedia bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Tetrapediini)
TLDR
Report of floral oil collection by males of Tetrapedia, a Neotropical genus of oil-collecting bees, describes behavioral aspects of oil foraging by males, data on morphological structures associated with the collection of this resource are presented, and potential hypotheses to explain the significance of floral oils in the mating system of tetrapedia are discussed.
Notes on oil sources for the bee genus Caenonomada(Hymenoptera, Apidae, Tapinotaspidini)
