A review of Indian subgenus Agandrena and Oreomellissa of Andrena

Lokesh Kumar Meena and Debjani Dey

In India Agandrena and Oreomellissa subgenus both were represented by only one species. These species were Andrena (Agandrena) agilissima and Andrena (Oreomellissa) rothenyi, respectively. Andrena (Agandrena) agilissima was first time redescribed here from India while Andrena (Oreomellissa) rothenyi was redescribed more comprehensively here which was earlier described by Cameron (1902). The photographs, line drawing and identification keys for female were also provided. Males were unknown. Also, diagnostic characters for both subgenera were first time established here for Indian species. This research will prove quite fruitful for further taxonomic studies on bees of Andrenidae family.
