Hymenoptera of the world -- bees, ants and all their friends
Created by


101 participants 1,722 spottings

The representatives of Hymenoptera order display a remarkable diversity not only of shapes and colours, but also of behaviours and lifestyles. Insect sociality, highly specific parasitism, various kinds of maternal care -- all these fascinating natural phenomena are displayed by insects from this order. We, humans, owe to them pollination of our crops and in many instances natural pest control. Help us document the amazing diversity of how they look and how they behave.
