They present evidence supporting an oligolectic ancestry in the Megachilinae and the Anthophorinae, and further suggest that polylecty has probably secondarily evolved within the Colletidae, Halictidae, and Andrenidae as well.
Communal associations among nestmates are known to occur in diverse lineages of bees, including the Hylaeinae, Nomiinae (Wcislo 1993), Halictinae [especially the Agapostemon complex and Australian species (Knerer and Schwarz 1976)], Andrenidae, Oxaeidae, Anthophoridae (especially Exomalopsini, Eucerini and Xylocopinae) and Megachilidae (Michener 1974; Eickwort 1981), as well as some sphecid (Crabroninae and Philanthinae; Evans et al.
