If you take down your Encyclopaedia Britannica , Volume III, AUS to BIS, you will find that bees are a 'large and natural family of the zoological order Hymenoptera

Do the very numerous spiders and rapacious Hymenoptera
supply the place of the carnivorous beetles?
The same number of joints in the tarsi is a character generally common to very large groups of beetles, but in the Engidae, as Westwood has remarked, the number varies greatly; and the number likewise differs in the two sexes of the same species: again in fossorial hymenoptera
, the manner of neuration of the wings is a character of the highest importance, because common to large groups; but in certain genera the neuration differs in the different species, and likewise in the two sexes of the same species.

On average, 10% of insect species are parasitoids and, among the known parasitoid species, 80% belong to Hymenoptera
, followed by Diptera (Van Driesche and Bellows, 1996).
Vanhorniidae is a small, uncommonly collected family of Hymenoptera
(previously in subfamily Serphidae or Proctotrupidae) comprised of 3 genera and 5 species (Choi & Lee 2012): Heloriserphus castor Masner and Heloriserphus pollux Masner in Chile (Townes & Townes 1981), Sinicivanhormia quizhouensis He and Chu in China (He & Chu 1990), Vanhornia leileri Hedqvist in Sweden and far eastern Russia (Storozhenko et al.

Our objective was to determine the effect of road proximity on the diversity, abundance, and composition of arthropod communities, with a special focus on the functionally and phylogenetically diverse group, Hymenoptera
. We found that total arthropod abundance was lowest at the intermediate distance from the road, a pattern driven by high Diptera abundance close to the road and high Collembola abundance far from the road.
