CATALOGUE OF AVSTEALIAN BEES.— HACKEE. 99 CATALOGUE OF AUSTRALIAN BEES. By Henry Hacker, F.E.S. The number of bees described from Australia is now very large, being no less than 872 species contained in 50 genera. The list compiled by W. W. Froggatt and published by the Linnean Society of N. S. Wales in 1892 contained 190 species distributed through 31 genera. In this catalogue references of a general character, field notes, or biological notes, are omitted, only hose being given which contain the descriptions of each species, or which deal with the systematic position of these species. The arrangement of divisions and families is taken from the Classification of Rocky Mountain Bees, by Professor T. D. A. Cockerell and W. W. Robbins.f while the genera and species are arranged alphabetically. The species marked with an asterisk are represented in the Museum collection ; with these species also are included all the localities from which the Museum series were obtained. A few species described by F. Smith cannot, after 68 years, be given a more exact habitat than " New Holland," but the majority have been rediscovered and a larger range of localities is now known.
