Annotated catalogue of the bees described by Léon Provancher (Hymenoptera: Apoidea)

  • Cory S. Sheffield (a1) and Jean-Marie Perron (a2)
Abstract
Abstract

The bee species described and identified by Léon Provancher are reviewed. From 1882–1896, Provancher published accounts of 179 bee species from North America, which represent 145 currently recognised species. He proposed 67 new names, 21 of which are here considered valid; five species epithets proposed by Provancher were junior homonyms.

The following are considered new junior synonyms of Provancher species: Andrena macrocephala Cockerell under Andrena nigripes Provancher; Pseudopanurgus nebrascensis (Crawford) under Pseudopanurgus aestivalis (Provancher); Lasioglossum timberlakei McGinley under Lasioglossum californicum (Provancher); Osmia kenoyeri Cockerell under Osmia tarsata Provancher. Additional new synonymies made here include: Halictus distinguendus Dalla Torre under Lasioglossum coriaceum (Smith); Osmia parva Provancher under Osmia atriventris Cresson; Stelis plena (Provancher) under Stelis lateralis Cresson; Coelioxys tristis Provancher under Coelioxys sodalis Cresson; Diadasia tricincta Provancher under Eucera actuosa (Cresson).

Lectotypes for 60 of Provancher's bee species are here designated, but type material for eight other species were not found. The taxonomic placement of Calliopsis quadrilineata Provancher, Calliopsis interrupta Provancher, Hoplitis alboscopata (Provancher), Hoplitis imperfecta (Provancher), and Diadasia albovestita Provancher within the bee fauna of North America remain unclear, and are here declared nomina oblita.

Résumé

Nous examinons les espèces d'abeilles décrites et identifiées par Léon Provancher. De 1882–1896, Provancher a publié des travaux concernant 179 espèces d'abeilles d'Amérique du Nord qui représentent 145 espèces actuellement valides. Il a proposé 67 nouveaux noms et nous en reconnaissons 21 comme valides; cinq des noms d'espèces proposés par Provancher étaient des synonymes plus récents.

Nous considérons les espèces ci-dessous comme des synonymes plus récents d'espèces décrites par Provancher: Andrena macrocephala Cockerell sous Andrena nigripes Provancher, Pseudopanurgus nebrascensis (Crawford) sous Pseudopanurgus aestivalis (Provancher), Lasioglossum timberlakei McGinley sous Lasioglossum californicum (Provancher) et Osmia kenoyeri Cockerell sous Osmia tarsata Provancher. Nous ajoutons les nouvelles synonymies suivantes: Halictus distinguendus Dalla Torre sous Lasioglossum coriaceum (Smith), Osmia parva Provancher sous Osmia atriventris Cresson, Stelis plena (Provancher) sous Stelis lateralis Cresson, Coelioxys tristis Provancher sous Coelioxys sodalis Cresson et Diadasia tricincta Provancher sous Eucera actuosa (Cresson).

Nous avons désigné des lectotypes pour 60 des espèces d'abeilles de Provancher, mais nous n'avons pu trouver le matériel type de huit autres espèces. Les statuts taxonomiques de Calliopsis quadrilineata Provancher, Calliopsis interrupta Provancher, Hoplitis alboscopata (Provancher), Hoplitis imperfecta (Provancher) et Diadasia albovestita Provancher dans la faune des abeilles d'Amérique du Nord restent incertains et nous considérons ces entités des nomina oblita.
