dc.description.abstract "The mature larvae of the Melittinae (Melitta), Macropidinae (Macropis), amd Dasypodinae (Dasypoda, Capicola, and Hesperapis) (larvae of the Ctenoplectrinae are still unknown) are described and illustrated; keys and diagnoses for their identification are provided. A lengthy diagnosis and taxonomic description of the family based on the larvae is presented. An analysis of the phylogeny of the family on the basis of mature larvae indicates that larvae of Melitta and Macropis are primitive (and similar) and that the Dasypodinae have undergone extensive evolutionary diversification. Taxonomic descriptions and illustrations of the pupae of Melitta and Macropis are appended"--P. 3. en_US
