Menke, 1976, University of California Press, Berkeley etc., p. ix, 695, commonly known as the Big Blue Book (BBB), is the most frequently used book on the worldwide taxonomy of the Sphecidae (Hymenoptera) down to subfamilies, tribes, and genera. A book of this size unavoidable contains mistakes. Since its publication a long row of errata and omissions were published in a variety of articles: see…

Identification Key to Species of Sceliphrini (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae: Sphecinae) with illustration of male genitalia in Iraq
The Sceliphrini probably has the widespread of ethological diversity of any sphecid tribe, the best known genera are Chalybion Dahlbom and Chlorion Latreille, and Sceliphron Klug which contains the yellow and black "mud dauber wasps".
Distribution and Biology of the Sphecine Wasps of Michigan (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae: Sphecinae)
Biological information and distribution maps are provided for the 26 species of thread-waisted wasps that occur in Michigan and a general outline of their nesting habits is presented in Table 1.
Checklist of the Spheciform Wasps (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae & Sphecidae) of British Columbia
A checklist of wasps in the hymenopteran families Crabronidae and Sphecidae is compiled for British Columbia resulting in a provincial total of 285 species including 64 species new to BC, 42 species
The Sphecidae (Hymenoptera) of New Zealand
Most species are endemic, but there are two adventive species of Australian origin, and the sphecid fauna is isolated and restricted and 16 species are discussed.
Annotated catalog of the series Spheciformes (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) from the Korean Peninsula
The Korean species of the series Spheciformes are catalogued and species filtered according to four topics—taxonomically conflicting, highly questionable in Korean occurrence, not based on actual Korean material, and known only from North Korea—are listed and discussed.
A new combination for the bembicine genus Selman Parker, 1929 (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae).
The identity of Monedula diana Handlirsch, 1890 is reassessed and the species is transferred to the monotypic genus Selman, which now includes two species, S. diana n. comb. and S. notatus
A review of the genus Bicyrtes(Hymenoptera: Sphecidae, Nyssoninae, Bembicini)

Revision of the family Sphecidae (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) in South Korea
The first determination keys to higher taxa and species occurring in South Korea are provided, and Ammophila campestris and Sceliphron caementarium are new to South Korea.
A revision of the Australian digger wasps in the genus Sphex (Hymenoptera, Sphecidae)
A dichotomous key covering all Australian species of the sphecid wasp genus Sphex has been generated and the geographic distribution of all species is discussed based on all available locality records in relation to the Australian climate zones.
