Faunistic inventory

osmialunata_helianthemum_web

Open brood cell of Osmia (Tergosmia) lunata Benoist, 1928 built in an excavated short burrow in hard soil (left); the brood cell consists of a mud layer sandwiched between to layers of petals, e.g. of Helianthemum (right) Fotos A. Müller.

Regional faunal works covering parts of the Palaearctic bees are rich and varied. They range from the most basic checklist (e.g. Romasenko, 1995b) to very detailed accounts (e.g. Westrich, 1989). The following list indicates those recent publications (generally published after 1950), which contain at least a nominally complete checklist of Osmiini taxa known from a region, island, country or substantial part of a large country. Many of these references also include keys, illustrations, distribution maps, or more or less detailed species accounts with ecological information. They are arranged in chronological order for each geographical entity.
