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 former are attacked by the cleptoparasite Protosiris gigas Melo (Osirini), and those of the latter are attacked by Parepeolus minutus Roig-Alsina (Osirini). Egg eclosion, larval feeding behavior, and cocoon spinning of M. haemorrhoidalis are detailed. A female of P. gigas opens the closed cell of M…

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Hide and seek: is the solitary bee Monoeca haemorrhoidalis trying to escape from its cleptoparasite Protosiris gigas (Hymenoptera, Apidae: Tapinotaspidini; Osirini)?
TLDR
Monoeca haemorrhoidalis showed emergence patterns characterized by bimodal curves with two distinct peaks throughout its activity period in both years and could be a temporal strategy against the attack of P. gigas since the activity period of this cuckoo bee occurred during the lowest number of emergent host individuals.
The Chilean Bees Xeromelissa nortina and X. sielfeldi: Their Nesting Biologies and Immature Stages, Including Biological Notes on X. rozeni (Colletidae: Xeromelissinae)
TLDR
Nests of Xeromelissa nortina and X. sielfeldi are described, found in the dry, high Atacama Desert of northern Chile, which contained linear cell series in the central pith channels of dead, broken twigs of Baccharis, revealing clear, cellophanelike cell linings that presumably control cell humidity.
Last Larval Instar and Mature Oocytes of the Old World Cleptoparasitic Bee Stelis murina, Including a Review of Stelis Biology (Apoidea: Megachilidae: Megachilinae: Anthidiini)
TLDR
The mature oocyte and last larval instar of Stelis (Stelis) murina Pérez, a cleptoparasite associated with Osmia (Pyrosmia) submicans Morawitz near Ismailia, Egypt, is described and found to be approximately equal in size.
Description of immature stages of cleptoparasitic bees Epeoloides coecutiens and Leiopodus trochantericus (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Osirini, Protepeolini) with remarks to their unusual biology
TLDR
The larva of Epeoloides is similar to other osirine species, but also possesses several characters previously known as autapomorphies of the genus Leiopodus, including the unusually short stadium of the first instar and kiling behaviour of the second instar in E. coecutiens.

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.
Biology of the Bee Canephorula apiformis and Its Cleptoparasite Melectoides bellus: Nesting Habits, Floral Preferences, and Mature Larvae (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
TLDR
The mature larvae of both host and cleptoparasite are described for the first time and compared with known larvae of their respective tribes and Cocoons of the two species are also described, illustrated, and compared to those of related taxa.
Biology and Immature Stages of the Bee Tribe Tetrapediini (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
TLDR
The immatures of Coelioxoides and Tetrapedia are quite distinct from those of other known apids and by this study are quite different from one another based on features of the eggs, first instars, and pupae.
Nesting biology and immature stages of the bees Centris caesalpiniae, C. pallida, and the cleptoparasite Ericrocis lata (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophoridae).
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.
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
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.
Eggs, Ovariole Numbers, and Modes of Parasitism of Cleptoparasitic Bees, with Emphasis on Neotropical Species (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)
TLDR
The unusual modified shapes of mature oocytes/eggs and the thick chorions of cleptoparasites that oviposit in open host cells are attributed to ways of protecting the eggs from discovery and damage by returning host females.
Notes on the Egg and Egg Deposition of the Cleptoparasite Thyreus ramosus (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Melectini)
Abstract Evidence is presented that females of the cleptoparasite Thyreus ramosus (Lepeletier) insert their eggs into the closed host cells of an Anthophora (Dasymegilla), tentatively identified as
Ovarioles and oocytes of two Old World cleptoparasitic bees with biological notes on Ammobatoides (Hymenoptera, Apidae). American Museum novitates ; no. 3326
TLDR
Number of ovarioles per ovary, oocyte to body-size ratios, and differences in oocyte shape and chorion structure support the conclusion that these two taxa represent different cleptoparasitic lineages.
