Protandrenini includes approximately 420 species of short-tongued bees, which are exclusively distributed in the Americas (Michener 2007; Moure et al. 2007; Ascher Pickering 2017). Members of this tribe are mostly found in xeric and temperate areas in South America, and their diversity is still greatly underestimated. In fact, a major challenge to the systematics of Protandrenini is the outstanding number of species unplaced in genera or awaiting formal description (Ruz Chiappa 2004; Ramos Melo…

Females of a solitary bee reject males to collect food for offspring
TLDR
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.

TLDR
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.

A new species of Protandrena Cockerell from Brazil (Hymenoptera, Apidae, Andreninae)*
TLDR
This species is unique within Protandrena for its well-developed pronotal lamella, similar to what is found in Pseudopanurgus and Parapsaenythia, and by its protuberant interantennal area.
