This paper describes a handful of bee and wasp species of Indonesia that are likely distinct enough to be identified by non-specialists. For kinds that are not identified, I suggest information you might include in a dictionary entry in order to move beyond simply glossing ‘a kind of bee’ or ‘a kind of wasp.’
