Stephenson, P.L., T. L. Griswold, M. S. Arduser, A. P. G. Dowling, and D. G. Krementz. Checklist of bees (Apodiea) from managed emergent wetlands in the lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley of Arkansas. Biodiversity Data Journal 6: e24071.
Here we present the results from a two-year bee survey conducted on 18 managed emergent wetlands in the lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley of Arkansas, USA. Sample methods included pan traps, sweep netting, and blue-vane traps. We document 83 bee species and morphospecies in 5 families and 31 genera, of which 37 species represent first published state records for Arkansas. The majority of species were opportunistic wetland species; only a small number were wetland-dependent species or species largely restricted to alluvial plains.
