A tight relationship between the solitary bee Calliopsis (Ceroliopoeum) laeta (Andrenidae, Panurginae) and Prosopis pollen hosts (Fabaceae, Mimosoideae) in xeric South American woodlands
TLDR
Pollen analyses of nest provisions and scopal loads from museum specimens of the monotypic subgenus Ceroliopoeum were carried out to assess its degree of specialization to pollen host-plants and its strong association with this pollen host seems to be well supported.

TLDR
Calliopsis (Hypomacrotera) persimilis is a solitary, ground-nesting bee whose natural history makes it particularly convenient for studies of investment patterns and foraging behavior, and results support the use of adult dry body weight ratios in the estimation of cost ratios.
Territórios de machos, acasalamento, distribuição e relação com plantas em Protomeliturga turnerae (Ducke, 1907) (Hymenoptera, Andrenidae)
TLDR
Protomeliturga turnerae is common and endemic in Northeastern Brazil, occurring from the State of Maranhao to Alagoas, and showed multiple mating.
Bee-flower interactions and pollination potential
TLDR
This article presents the recent trends in describing the bee-blossom relationships, in interpreting the bees foraging behaviour on the basis of optimal foraging theory and the nature of floral resource, and the role of pollinator behaviour in determining the genetic make-up of the bee pollinated plants.
NESTS, BEHAVIOUR AND LARVAE OF THE BEE STENOTRITUS PUBESCENS (SMITH) AND BEHAVIUR OF SOME RELATED SPECIES (HYMENOPTERA: APOIDEA: STENOTRITINAE)
TLDR
The information presented in considered to support a belief that stenotritine bees are misplaced in the family Colletidae.
