A clean list of Odonata names have been uploaded on IBP based on Subramanian, K.A. and Babu, R. (2017). Checklist of Odonata (Insecta) of India. Version 3.0.

There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees including solitary species such as  carpenter bees, leafcutter bees and mason bees, and social bees such as honey bees, bumblebees, and stingless bees. Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants, and are the major type of pollinator in many ecosystems that contain flowering plants. This group will document the bee species occurring in India through aggreagating observations to record distributions, descriptive content within species pages for information and recording interactions of bees with their food plants.
