An online platform to help you with
I finally found some time to update the website and add a couple of dozen new citations with identification keys. Thank you to all the contributors, now we have more that 220 documents with identification keys readily accessible in the bibliography! Many of those have their pdf online thanks to Atlas Hymenoptera and Zobodat. Don't forget to check these websites, if you haven't yet.
And we now have a couple of pictures to illustrate Lasioglossum thanks to Justyna Kierat! Which reminds me: if you have pictures of wild bees and you would like to help this project, please contact us. Any help is welcome.
Also, good news, in case you missed it there are 3 new species of Andrena published recently by Thomas Wood, with identification keys to the iberian species of the corresponding subgenera. Kudos Thomas!
Jan Smit also helped update the Nomada list with some new species and recent ones that he published with Max and other colleagues and that we had missed. Thank you!
We are missing many pictures right now and we lack this talent in the current team. We could really use help to better illustrate the different genera and their characteristics.
Finally, Matthieu Aubbert published online an identification key of Eucera species. It is in french, but it is beautifully illustrated and forms a very nice addition to the identification tools for this group.
This is all for the August 2020 update, enjoy your summer!
