& Manu DehonAtlas of the European Bees: genus Tarsalia
First on line 5.IX.2014
This first version includes all available data on this very rare genus. The main source is Warncke (1979). This authors considered Tarsalia as a subgenus of Ancyla. Baker (1998) and Michener (2007) advocated the separation of these taxa with a genus level. We follow here the Michener's classification.
Thanks for Sam Droege, Pietro Nielo and Gideon Pisanty for the splendid pictures of these rare animals.
