Abstract

Background

The checklist of British and Irish aculeate Hymenoptera (Apoidea, Chrysidoidea and Vespoidea) is revised. Species distribution is summarised for all species at the level of country (England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Isle of Man).

New information

The 601 native species represent an increase of 25 on the 1978 checklist, comprising mostly new discoveries. This increase is nearly balanced by the 23 species now presumed to be extinct in Britain and Ireland.

Keywords

Britain, Ireland, bees, ants, wasps, fauna

Introduction

The checklist of British and Irish aculeates is essentially that of Else et al. (2004) but with several additions and updated taxonomy. This continues the series of chapters, starting with Broad and Livermore (2014a), Broad and Livermore (2014b) and Liston et al. (2014) comprising the first complete updating of the 1978 Hymenoptera checklist (Fitton et al. 1978).

Unlike most groups of Hymenoptera, the aculeate ants, bees and wasps are well-served by identification literature and are actively collected and recorded by a relatively large number of amateur as well as professional entomologists. We thus have a better idea of the actual size of the fauna than we do for sawflies and parasitoid wasps. There is thus a much better idea of change in the aculeate fauna and numerous extinctions and colonisations have been documented.

The aculeate Hymenoptera encompass three superfamilies and 18 families in Britain and Ireland (as discussed in Broad 2014, this figure is likely to change), with a wide range of ecologies and body forms. Figs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 depict some of this variety (and the website of the Bees, Wasps and Ants Recording Society has many more images). With multiple evolutions of eusociality, importance as pollinators, predators and parasitoids and general conspicuousness, the aculeates have always attracted attention and very good summaries of their biology can be found in a diverse array of texts for a variety of different audiences, from Lubbock (1882) to Gauld and Bolton (1988).

Materials and methods

The rationale and background to the updated Hymenoptera checklist are laid out in Broad (2014). The aim is to account for all the names in the 1978 checklist, document all additions to and deletions from that list and to list the distributions of all species at the country level, i.e. England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland (as one unit) and the Isle of Man. We do not usually report distribution data for introduced species that only reproduce indoors or in greenhouses.

Sources of classification are listed under each superfamily. The checklist of bees is essentially similar to that of Else's (in prep.) handbook to the British fauna, except that we employ six families rather than including all bees in Apidae and, as discussed in the introduction to this checklist series (Broad 2014), we do not consider the fauna of the Channel Islands. We adopt a multi-family classification of the bees to maintain unity with larger-scale checklists (particularly that of M. Kuhlmann's Checklist of the Western Palaearctic Bees) and because this is the system employed in the most authoritative treatise on bee classification (Michener 2007), as well as most recent papers dealing with bee phylogeny.

Country-level distribution data mostly derive from the distribution atlases produced by the Bees, Wasps and Ants Recording Society (Edwards 1997, Edwards 1998, Edwards and Telfer 2001, Edwards and Telfer 2002, Edwards and Broad 2005, Edwards and Broad 2006, Edwards and Roy 2009, Collins and Roy 2012, with maps updated on their website), the catalogue of Irish Hymenoptera (O'Connor et al. 2009), and some additional literature references. Note that the Bethylidae, Dryinidae and Embolemidae are particularly poorly recorded.

The following abbreviations and conventions are employed:

[species] taxon deleted from the British and Irish list

NHM Natural History Museum, London

# known or suspected introductions with at least temporarily self-sustaining populations

? status (including uncertain synonymy) or identification in the British Isles uncertain

misident. has been misidentified as this name

nom. dub. nomen dubium, a name of unknown or doubtful application

nom. ob. nomen oblitum, ‘forgotten name’, does not have priority over a younger name

nom. nov. nomen novum, a replacement name

nom. nud. nomen nudum, an unavailable name, with no type specimen

preocc. name preoccupied (junior homonym)

stat. rev. status revocatus, revived status (e.g., raised from synonymy)

unavailable not meeting the requirements of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature

var. variety, only available as a valid name under the provisions of article 45.6 of the ICZN

Notes: 

The higher-level classification of the Apoidea follows Pulawski (2013)Engel (2005) and M. Kuhlmann's online checklist of Western Palaearctic bees. The ‘traditional’ family Sphecidae is paraphyletic with respect to the bee families (here referred to as the Anthophila, an informal taxon, following Engel 2005) and in Britain and Ireland comprises the families Crabronidae and Sphecidae. Species-level classification of Crabronidae and Sphecidae follows Pulawski (2013). Figs 1, 2: habitus of selected British Apoidea.
