Interactive key to Ceratina of the Pacific Northwest
How it works: As you choose options from the list on the left, taxa on the right are scored to reflect the fit with selected characters. The side-by-side comparison tool places selected taxa in a row to the right, highlighting differences in character states.
The key is largely based on Bees of the genus Ceratina in America north of Mexico, Daly, 1973. Consult this for in-depth treatment of Ceratina species.
