Abstract Tetrapedia diversipes Klug is herein reported for the first time to be the host of the cleptoparasite Coelioxoides waltheriae Ducke. Because these two genera had been previously recognized as sister taxa [A. Roig-Alsina. 1990. Coelioxoides Cresson, a parasitic genus of Tetrapediini (Hymenoptera: Apoidea). Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society 63: 279–287], the authors wished to learn to what extent biological information and immature stages reflected this relationship. Tetrapedia… 
Bionomic Aspects of the Solitary Bee Tetrapedia diversipes Klug, 1810 (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Tetrapediini)
The study aimed to describe bionomic aspects of Tetrapedia diversipes Klug, 1810 in order to allow the conservation or breeding of these bees. The nesting biology was studied using trap nests made
Nesting and Developmental Biology of the Cleptoparasitic Bee Stelis ater (Anthidiini) and Its Host, Osmia chalybea (Osmiini) (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae)
TLDR
The first account of the nesting biology of Osmia (Helicosmia) chalybea Smith and of its cleptoparasite Stelis (Stelis) ater Mitchell is provided, a newly confirmed host association.
New host records of Aglaomelissa duckei and a compilation of host associations of Ericrocidini bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
Although the phylogenetic relationships within Ericrocidini and among the subgenera of Centris are not well resolved, the current knowledge of the host-parasite associations points to a relatively high degree of specificity and possible coevolution between them.
Hospicidal Behavior of the Cleptoparasitic Wasp Sapyga luteomaculata And Investigation into Ontogenetic Changes in Its Larval Anatomy (Hymenoptera: Vespoidea: Sapygidae)
TLDR
The nesting biology of the Egyptian cleptoparasitic wasp Sapyga luteomaculata Pic is described, which attacks the nests of two species of bees, Osmia submicans Morawitz and Megachile minutissima Radoszkowski, both belonging to the Megachilidae.
Nesting biology and behavioural ecology of the solitary bee Monoeca haemorrhoidalis (Smith) and its cleptoparasite Protosiris gigas Melo (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Tapinotaspidini; Osirini)
TLDR
During the nest construction activities, 27 insect species were observed at the nesting sites and the cleptoparasitic bee Protosiris gigas was one of the main causes of M. haemorrhoidalis mortality.
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
Investigations on the Biologies and Immature Stages of the Cleptoparasitic Bee Genera Radoszkowskiana and Coelioxys and Their Megachile Hosts (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Megachilidae: Megachilini)
TLDR
The biology and immature stages (egg, mature larva, and pupa) of the cleptoparasitic bee Radoszkowskiana rufiventris (Spinola) are described for the first time based on fieldwork in Egypt over a 2-year period.

Parasitic Behavior of Exaerete smaragdina with Descriptions of Its Mature Oocyte and Larval Instars (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Euglossini)
TLDR
Evidence suggests that the cleptoparasite's sting usually kills the host egg (or possibly first instar) and that the second instar is capable of killing thehost egg and the eggs (or young larvae) of other cleptoarasites in instances of multiple parasitism.
Cleptoparasitic Behavior and Immatures of the Bee Melecta duodecimmaculata (Apoidea: Apidae: Melectini) Appendix: Tribal Descriptions of the Anthophorini and Melectini Based on their Mature Larvae
TLDR
The nesting biology of the cleptoparasitic bee Melecta duodecimmaculata (Rossi), which attacked a nesting site of Anthophora in Beijing, China, is described and the phylogenetic relationship of the Melectini with the Anthophorini is explored.

TLDR
Nest site requirements, nest architecture and structure, cocoon constructions, larval defecation patterns, provisioning, some aspects of development and adult emergence, and nest parasitism are described and significant interspecific differences pointed out.

TLDR
The authors agree that Pararhophites probably belongs to the megachilid lineage rather than to the anthophorid/apid line where it has been assigned in the past and places it in the Megachilidae.

TLDR
A comparison of the biology of Fidelia, Parafidelia, and Neofidelia is presented as is a tabular comparison of nesting, provisioning, and development characteristics of the Fideliinee, Lithurginae, and Megachilinae.
Nesting biology of Centris (Hemisiella) vittata Lepeletier in southeastern Brazil (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Centridini)
TLDR
Females were significantly larger than males, and no dimorphism in males was found, in nests of Centris vittata obtained from trap-nests at Santa Carlota Farm, Cajuru, SP, Brazil.
Biology, Immature Development, and Adaptive Behavior of Stelis montana, a Cleptoparasite of Osmia (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae)
The biology of a cleptoparasitic anthidiine bee, Stelis montana Cresson, is described based on composite notes taken from field, laboratory, and greenhouse studies of three host species ( Osmia
Nesting behaviour of Centris (Heterocentris) analis (Fabricius) in southeastern Brazil (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Centridini)
TLDR
The nest-site availability and food availability observed in this study apparently did not influence the nesting behaviour of Centris analis, and the factors inducing C. analis females to act parasitically are not known.
Comparative Notes on the Biology and Development of Epeolus compactus Cresson., a Cleptoparasite of Colletes kincaidii Cockerell (Hymenoptera: Anthophoridae, Colletidae)
The biology of the nomadine bee, Epeolus compactus Cresson, is described based on composite notes taken from field, laboratory, and greenhouse studies of the host bee, Colletes kincaidii Cockerell.
In-nest biologies and development of immature stages of three Osmia species (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae)
TLDR
The function of head tubercles (malar, labroclypeal, genal) are associated with the nesting biology of Osmia for the first time, and these particular features distinguish the two subgenera and three species treated and should be incorporated into future biosystematic studies.
