THE BUMBLEBEE PROJECT - SET 46
About the Project
Please help us create digital records for the United States National Entomological Collection! We will be transcribing the labels of specimens of bumblebees. Bumblebees are found in the Bombus genus (Hymenoptera: Apidae). They are social insects that feed on nectar and collect pollen to feed their young. Bumblebees are very important pollinators! Learn how to transcribe this project and get started.
The digitization of this project has been made possible with the generous support of Pixel Acuity, LLC. Please contact Jessica Bird (email@example.com), Department of Entomology, for any questions or comments about the transcriptions and thanks to all of you for your help!
The United States National Entomological Collection is the second largest insect collection in the world. It contains over 35 million specimens representing more than 300,000 different species. You can find images of some of the specimens in the collection here.
