McGinley, Ronald J. Studies of Halictinae (Apoidea: Halictidae), II: Revision of Sphecodogastra Ashmead, Floral Specialists of Onagraceae. Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number 610, 55 pages, 151 figures, 3 tables, 2003.—The bee genus Sphecodogastra Ashmead is revised from the study of approximately 3200 specimens. Eight species are recognized with three described as new. All species are described and diagnosed. The systematic history of the genus, including questions concerning its… Expand
The bees of Michigan (Hymenoptera: Apoidea: Anthophila), with notes on distribution, taxonomy, pollination, and natural history.
TLDR
A rich bee fauna is documented that includes geographically-restricted species, rare and regionally-declining species, and economically-important species, providing information for ongoing conservation planning and future analysis of trends in bee populations. Expand
The phylogeny and classification of the tribe Halictini , with special reference to the Halictus genus-group ( Hymenoptera : Halictidae )
The monophyly of the cosmopolitan tribe Halictini, including over 2300 currently recognized species, is supported by at least a single manifested synapomorphy shared by all members of the tribe:Expand

THE AUGOCHLORA-LIKE DIALICTUS FROM GUATEMALA AND SOUTHERN MÉXICO (HYMENOPTERA: HALICTIDAE)
Four remarkable bee species are described and illustrated from southern Mexico and northern Guatemala, all of the genus Lasioglossum and in the diverse subgenus Dialictus, previously documented by 29Expand
The population genetics of a solitary oligolectic sweat bee, Lasioglossum (Sphecodogastra) oenotherae (Hymenoptera: Halictidae)
TLDR
The population genetics of the oligolectic bee Lasioglossum oenotherae, a specialist on the pollen of evening primrose, are studied by genotyping 455 females from 15 populations across the bee's North American range at six hyper-variable microsatellite loci, finding significant levels of genetic differentiation between populations, even at small geographic scales, as well as significant patterns of isolation by distance.

An updated checklist of the bees (Hymenoptera, Apoidea, Anthophila) of Pennsylvania, United States of America
TLDR
An updated checklist of the bees of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA, is presented and includes a total of 23 exotic species and at least five species of conservation concern. Expand
A revision of Perdita (Xerophasma) Timberlake (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae).
TLDR
A well supported phylogeny suggests evolution toward nocturnal foraging expressed in increasing ocellar size and a trend toward totally pale integument in Perdita (Xerophasma) endemic to the Mojave Desert. Expand
Checklist of bees (Apoidea) from a private conservation property in west-central Montana
TLDR
This survey expands the number of bee species recorded in Montana to 366 and presents new distributional records for 34 bee species, including Megachile (Eutricharaea) apicalis Spinola, an introduced bee that was discovered to be resident in North America in 1984 in Santa Barbara County, California. Expand
Checklist of bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) from small diversified vegetable farms in south-western Montana
TLDR
This study increases the overall understanding of the distribution of wild bee species associated with agroecosystems of the northern US Rockies, which is important for efforts aimed at conserving bee biodiversity and supporting sustainable crop pollination systems on farmlands. Expand
A Checklist of the Bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of Pennsylvania
TLDR
Of the 371 species reported here, 150 are new state records, including 27 of the 98 species found in the PDA surveys. Expand

Bionomic notes on the solitary Evylaeus oenotherae (Stevens) (Hymenoptera: Halictinae), a matinal summer bee visiting cultivated Onagraceae
TLDR
Competition for suitable nests in early summer appears to keep the breeding population of Evylaeus oenotherae at a certain level and prevents the overexploitation of its exclusive food source, Oenothera pollen. Expand

TLDR
The phylogeny suggests that close relatives of L. (E.) fulvicorne and also most of the major species groups of Evylaeus which have not received any field study should be investigated both phylogenetically and behaviorally for a full evaluation of behavioral evolution inEvylaeus. Expand
STRUCTURAL, BEHAVIORAL, AND PHYSIOLOGICAL ADAPTATIONS OF BEES (APOIDEA) FOR COLLECTING POLLEN'
Bees, like their wasp relatives, forage for and transport food to a nest as provisions for their offspring. Unlike female Sphecoidea which transport arthropods one at a time as prey, bees transportExpand
Evolution of sociality in a primitively eusocial lineage of bees

TLDR
It is shown that eusociality has arisen only three times within halictid bees (contrary to earlier estimates of six or more origins), and reversals from eUSocial to solitary behavior have occurred as many as 12 times, indicating that social reversals are common in the earliest stages of eussocial evolution.

The ecology of solitary bees
TLDR
The development of management procedures which will permit increased utilization of native solitary bees and perhaps lead to the importation of foreign species native to the areas in which the authors' agricultural crops originated, requires a detailed knowledge of the ecology, or environmental relationships, of these bees.
