Much of his collection is in the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris and there are some

Johann Dietrich Alfken (11 June 1862, Frankfurt - 14 February 1945, Rüthersdorf, Berlin) was a German entomologist who specialised in Hymenoptera especially
These are all the members of the superfamily

His collection of Hymenoptera (

is a major group within the Hymenoptera, which includes two traditionally recognized lineages, the "sphecoid" wasps, and the bees. Molecular phylogeny demonstrates that the bees arose from within the Crabronidae, so that grouping is paraphyletic.
Some Diptera (flies) may be the main pollinators at higher elevations of mountains, whereas "Bombus" species are the only pollinators among

Research wise, Sandhouse focused on taxonomy of Hymenoptera, specifically
. She published a monograph on the "Osmia" genus. Sandhouse's personal archives are in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution Archives.
Leland Ossian Howard led the Bureau of Entomology. Grace Sandhouse, who studied
, worked at the Bureau from 1926 until her death in 1940. Lewis Hart Weld worked at the Bureau until his resignation in 1924.
This species belongs to the family Megachilidae and the order Hymenoptera, which consists of organisms such as ants, bees and wasps, and the superfamily
, which is more specific to bees and wasps.
By analyzing the ultrastructure of "A. vicina "sperm and comparing it to samples from other species within its superfamily, Vespidae, it has been found that "A. vicina "may be more closely linked to
than to Vespidae phylogenetically.
Melittology (from Greek , "melitta", "bee"; and "-logia") is a branch of entomology concerning the scientific study of bees. Melittology covers the species found in the clade Anthophila within the superfamily
, comprising more than 20,000 species, including bumblebees and honey bees.
"Centris pallida" was officially discovered and catalogued by William J. Fox in 1899 near Phoenix, Arizona. Fox also discovered "Centris cockerelli", "Centris errans", and "Sphex subhyalinus". This species is closely related to "Centris cockerelli" in terms of habitat and genus, but is different in terms of mating, color, and subgenus. This bee also belongs to the super family
, and the subfamily Apinae.
The Halictidae is the second largest family of
bees. Halictid species occur all over the world and are usually dark-colored and often metallic in appearance. Several species are all or partly green and a few are red; a number of them have yellow markings, especially the males, which commonly possess yellow faces, a pattern widespread among the various families of bees.
Agelaia vicina is a species of wasp in the genus "Agelaia". They are neotropical social wasps known to have the largest colony sizes and nest sizes among social wasps, with some colonies exceeding over one million individuals. They are predators of land arthropods, consuming both insects and spiders alike. Recent sperm morphology studies have shown that although Vespidae belong to the superfamily Vespoidea, Agelaia vicina may be more phylogenetically related to
"L. cressonii" is within the family
and subfamily Halictidae, commonly known as sweat bees. These bees are often very similar morphologically which makes studying their taxonomy difficult. The genus, "Lasioglossum", is a more recent genus as evidenced by the fact that there are no known fossils. "Lasioglossum" is a socially diverse genus with a number of subcategories associated with it. "Lasioglossum cressonii" was first physically characterized by Charles Robertson in 1890.
In 1969, Charles D. Michener further expanded Batra’s classification with his comparative study of social behavior in bees. He observed multiple species of bees (
) in order to investigate the different levels of animal sociality, all of which are different stages that a colony may pass through. Eusociality, which is the highest level of animal sociality a species can attain, specifically had three characteristics that distinguished it from the other levels:
Bees appear in recent classifications to be a specialized lineage of crabronid wasps that switched to the use of pollen and nectar as larval food, rather than insect prey; this makes the Crabronidae a paraphyletic group. Accordingly, bees and sphecoids are now all grouped together in a single superfamily, and the older available name is "
" rather than "Sphecoidea" (which, like Spheciformes, has been used in the past, but also defined a paraphyletic group and has been abandoned).
The Halictidae belong to the hymenopteran superfamily
, series Anthophila. The oldest fossil record of Halictidae dates back to Early Eocene with a number of species, such as "Neocorynura electra" and "Augochlora leptoloba" known from amber deposits. Currently, the family is divided into four subfamilies, many genera and more than 2000 known species. The Rophitinae appear to be the sister group to the remaining three subfamilies (Nomiinae, Nomioidinae, Halictinae) based on both morphology and molecular data.
