Annotated List of Bees, Wasps, Ants & Sawflies [2018 Revision] 

 

Here is a list of Hymentoptera recorded at the lake. Most records are from a survey by David J. Gibbs, others my own unless stated, so any inaccuracy is entirely down to me. If anyone has records they'd like to include, please contact me and I will insert and acknowledge them accordingly.
