Re: [beemonitoring] Hymenoptera Catalog for North America north of Mexico now Online
- Thanks Jack:
Good point I was a little to quick on my "fix" for the Catalog. One could use the list of names of bees on the individual species DL guides as perhaps a better route given that I go with John's list of acceptable names, those then link to the "other" names list for a better cross-reference. There will be qualifications there in terms of individual ideas about what are species and what are not, but it should be a more reasonable approximation of a current list of species than the Catalog.

Sam: Users of John's List should be aware that the
"Other Names" category is not a synonymic list but
rather a species level list of all names applied to a
particular taxon at the species level. It is agnostic
as to whether the many subspecies listed under various
species are "real" or not, either as subspecies or as
