Bees (Hymenoptera, Apiformes)

Overview

The identification of bees from photographs can be difficult as tiny details on the animals have to be seen. Michael Batley, our moderator for bees has begun a trial identification tool for bees. The test groups are Megachilid bees and Hylaeine bees found in the Sydney basin and Blue Mountains, but should cover most of those groups in the Canberra region.

If you want to try the identification tools, the addresses for the two groups are below:-

Megachilid bees
