Feature Expedition

ANIC Bee Expedition 5

SpecimensAustralian National Insect Collection

Australia has over 1,500 species of native bees. This expedition involves adding to our knowledge about the distribution and diversity of Australia's Euryglossinae bees. Join the Bee Transcription Expedition Team and help us capture information from specimens up to 80 years old. You will be helping us unlock information that has been hidden away at the Australian National Insect Collection, but now will be available worldwide through the Atlas of Living Australia.
