Anthrenoides calderensis sp. nov., A. cordobensis sp. nov., A. gibberosus sp. nov., A. neffi sp. nov., A. punctatus sp. nov., A. saltensis sp. nov., A. sanpedroi sp. nov., A. tucumanus sp. nov. and A. villaguayensis sp. nov. are described and illustrated. A key to identify the species is presented. 
A New Species of Perdita (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae) from Central Texas Associated with the Rubiaceae
Abstract Perdita (Perdita) pedernalensis Neff, new species, is described from Blanco County, Texas. It is the first member of the Perditini associated with the Rubiaceae and the only member of that
Two New Species of Anthrenoides Ducke, 1907 (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Andreninae) with a Checklist of Andrenine Bees of Cerrado Savanna
A checklist of andrenine bees from Cerrado is provided and two new species of Anthrenoides are described, one of which is associated with flowers of Alstroemeria gardneri (Alstroemeriaceae) which are used as a source of food and mating sites.
Psaenythisca, a New Genus of Bees from South America (Apoidea: Andrenidae: Protandrenini) with a Description of the Nesting Biology and Immature Stages of One Species
Psaenythisca is closely related to Cephalurgus and Rhophitulus, and can be distinguished mainly by the forewing with three submarginal cells, premarginal area of S2 to S5 of male with dense pubescence, distal margin of S6 of male slightly emarginated, and male genitalia with relatively broad basal sclerite.
Taxonomic revision and phylogenetic relationships of the bee genus Parapsaenythia Friese (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Protandrenini), with biogeographic inferences for the South American Chacoan Subregion
The species of Parapsaenythia are revised, with seven species recognized, of which three are described as new, and a cladistic biogeographic analysis was performed, and area cladograms for the Chacoan subregion are presented and discussed.
Taxonomy of the bee species Anthrenoides nigrinasis (Vachal, 1909) n. comb.: redescription of the type, description of the female, and new distribution records (Hymenoptera: Apoidea).
Protandrenini includes approximately 420 species of short-tongued bees, which are exclusively distributed in the Americas and many South American genera are in need of taxonomic revision.
Females of a solitary bee reject males to collect food for offspring
The costs of copulations and persistent courtship by males in terms of time for females of the solitary bee Anthrenoides micans are determined and it is estimated that females would perform 64% fewer flower visits per hour if they accepted all copulation attempts.
