      All:

      Leah Larkin (U New Mexico) and a number of other people have been working on creating online guides to the genus Andrena.  At this point the guides can be considered to be highly functional for all the Eastern North American species with some odds and ends issues regarding some difficult to tell apart species groups (e.g. Trachandrena males) that may take quite a while to fully resolve.  In any case we would be very interested in your feedback on these guides and you should feel free to post your comments to the listserve.


      Females are located at:

      Males:

      General guidance on using the guides for those who have not already done so can be found at:

      Such power in the naming of things -
      to walk out in the greensward pronouncing
      goldfinch, lilac, oriental poppy -
      as if the shaping of the thing in sound
      produced a pleasure like the sight of things
      as if the house finch winters in the mock-orange is
      as tasty an intelligence to the lips and ears as
      the sight of a small purple bird in December is
      perched in a thicket of bald branches.
      June you remember: the white blossoms, yellow
      jackets, the fresh scent of heaven.
      And other incarnations to be named:
      nuthatch, magnolia, coreopsis, rose.
      Surely this was God's first gift of godliness -
      that new index finger working over the globe
      assigning from the noisy void those fresh,
      orderly syllables.  Ocean, garden,
      helpmate, tree of knowledge.
      Making came easy, creation
      a breeze.  But oh, that dizzy pleasure when
      God said Eve and the woman looked heavenward.
