Corbiculate Bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae): Exploring the Limits of Morphological Data to Solve a Hard Phylogenetic Problem
This work generated the most extensive morphological dataset for the corbiculate bee species by exploring characters from all body regions, including external and internal adult skeletal anatomy, and explored different analyses and optimality criteria including extended implied weights parsimony and two partitioning schemes for Bayesian inferences.
Discovery of the Bee Tribe Tarsaliini in Arabia (Hymenoptera: Apidae), with the Description of a New Species
The uncommonly encountered bee tribe Tarsaliini (Apinae) is recorded from the Arabian Peninsula for the first time, and based on a new species of the genus Tarsalia Morawitz, which is segregated into a new subgenus, Astibomelissa Engel.
Comparative morphology of the mandibles and head structures of corbiculate bees (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Apini)
This work provides a description and discussion on characters of the head capsule, mandibles and sitophore of bees, and an attempt is made to standardize the current terminology used for bees and for other Hymenoptera.
The species of Colletinae (Hymenoptera: Colletidae) in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.
The Brazilian state of Minas Gerais is a species-rich territory about as large as France, which houses the headwaters of some of the most important rivers in Brazil, as well as a variety of
The impact of molecular data on our understanding of bee phylogeny and evolution.
An overview of significant discoveries in bee phylogeny based primarily on the application of molecular data is presented and how the new phylogenetic insights have altered the understanding of bee biology is described.
Phylogeny of the bee family Megachilidae (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) based on adult morphology
A cladistic analysis of adult external morphological characters shows that Fideliinae and the tribes Anthidiini and Osmiini ofMegachilinae are paraphyletic; it supports the monophyly of Megachilinee, including the extinct taxa, and the sister group relationship of Lithurgini to the remaining megachilines.
Callosphecodes, a little-known bee (Hymenoptera, Halictidae, Sphecodes)
The male of Sphecodes ralunensis is here described for the first time and the females of the two species are compared for theFirst time.
Phylogenetic Analysis of the Bee Tribe Anthidiini
It is suggested that the origin and center of radiation for the Anthidiini probably occurred in the southern pantropic region of Gondwana and a second and independent migration to the Neotropical region by the prob-able ancestors of the current Neotropic genera is also conceivable.
Phylogeny of the bee subtribe Caenohalictina Michener (Hymenoptera, Apidae s.l., Halictinae s.l.)
Phylogeny of the bee subtribe Caenohalictina Michener is summarized in Gonçalves, R. R. & Melo, G. A. (2009).
