About this book

Language: English

Bees belonging to the genus Stelis parasitize on other bee species and are therefore also called "cuckoo bees". The Cuckoo Bees of the Genus Stelis Panzer, 1806 in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East provides for the first time a comprehensive guide to the Stelis species of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East and summarises our knowledge on all species, and gives for the first time a comprehensive identification key in the English language. The species chapters are richly illustrated with 155 colour micro photographs and altogether with 246 line drawings mostly showing morphological details useful for identification. The book also contains for all species information on flowers visited, seasonal occurrence and colour distribution maps.
