    Is there a tried/true procedure to find the currently accepted taxonomy from older names? For instance, how would one ascertain that Megachile s old subgenus

      Is there a tried/true procedure to find the currently accepted taxonomy
      from older names?
      For instance, how would one ascertain that Megachile's old subgenus
      Anthemois in now Megachile s. str.?

      It seems that Michener's Bees of the World provides the relevant
      references and old systematics for each subgenus. But how to do this
      backwards?

      Maybe the Hymenopteran Name Server? (http://osuc.biosci.ohio-state.edu/)

      Thanks for the consideration,
