Abstract

The generic name Dolichostelis is proposed for six species of stelidine bees formerly placed under Protostelis Friese. The new genus is described and the included species are redescribed and separated by a key. The genus (restricted to the southern United States, Mexico, and Central America) is considered to be Neotropical in origin and composed of two widely separated species groups, one represented solely by D. perpulchra (Crawford).
