The Bumblebee Project - SET 73

Please join us to transcribe the labels of specimens to gain valuable data for understanding how the world around us has changed over time. Bumblebees are found in the Bombus genus (Hymenoptera: Apidae) and are very important pollinators. They are social insects that feed on nectar and collect pollen to feed their young. We have 2,550 bombus specimens and labels remaining to transcribe and review; this is one of 5 remaining historical sets from the United States Entomological Collection. Learn how to transcribe this project and get started now. This set contains locality information and placenames from Nepal and Iran, which may have changed since the specimens were collected; check and add to this spreadsheet if you cannot find the location in Geonames. Transcribe as much as you can, checking with Geonames.org for locality information, and leave notes explaining your decisions. Please do not delete the notes left by other volunteers; this information is very important for staff. The digitization of this project has been made possible with the generous support of Pixel Acuity, LLC. Please contact Jessica Bird, Department of Entomology, for any questions or comments about the transcriptions and thanks to all of you for your help.
