Atlas Hymenoptera - Meganomia
author(s) : Denis Michez & Alain Pauly

Geographic zone: Africa - World
Meganomia is included in the subfamily Meganomiinae wich is the smallest subfamily of Melittidae s.l. (tab. 1). In ligth of recent
molecular analyses, Meganomiidae is probably the sister group of the Melittidae s.str. (Danforth et al. 2006a, b). Meganomia species are robust bees with three sub-marginal cells, extending yellow marking on the whole body and many unique modifications of legs and hidden sterna of male (Michener 1981).
Meganomia is restricted to the Sub-Saharan Africa except one undescribed Meganomia species recorded in Yemen.
