ARNOLD, Noemi et al. New records of stingless bees (Apidae: Meliponini) for the Mexican states of Chiapas and Oaxaca. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2018, vol.89, n.3, pp.651-665. ISSN 2007-8706.

New records for the fauna of stingless bees (tribe Meliponini) in the Mexican states of Oaxaca and Chiapas are reported. These records were obtained through intensive sampling of these bees. A database of the records generated from this sampling effort was compiled along with data provided by other researchers, data present in collections, and data reported in the literature. The study shows 12 new records of Meliponini not previously identified in Oaxaca, and confirms the presence of the species Paratrigona opaca in Chiapas. In addition, the distribution of these bees in the 2 states and the country is discussed. It is expected that this information on the fauna and distribution of stingless bees will help regional conservation efforts and the use of these bees in stingless beekeeping and pollination.
