Apoid Wasps (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of Ohio

This project is the result of an independent study that sought to use digitized museum data to generate high-quality occurrence-based species checklists. The checklist is accompanied by a key to apoid wasp genera of Ohio based upon the species records in the aforementioned checklist. 137 species in 50 genera and 3 families are included.

Abstract: Digitized museum records of wasps of the hymenopteran superfamily Apoidea were compiled and analyzed to obtain a count and list of species occurring in Ohio. A checklist including all apoid wasp species reported in Ohio is given. A key to included genera is also given.
