This issue is dedicated to the memory of Wallace Edmund LaBerge (Fig. 1) (7 Feb-
ruary 1927–22 July 2013), an American entomologist best known for his monumental
works on the systematics of Andrena Fabricius (Andrenidae) and Melissodes Latreille
(Apidae). We commemorate his life by presenting a brief account of his career as well
as a summary of his contributions to meliological science.
LaBerge was born in Grafton, North Dakota, and obtained both his Bachelor and
Master degrees in Zoology from the nearby University of North Dakota, Grand Forks,
in 1949 and 1951, respectively, and developed an interest in the systematics of ants
(Formicidae). He was the second of seven children and married Elizabeth “Bey”
LaMont, a native of Grafton, on 9 August 1958. Following his M.Sc. degreee, LaBerge
was hired as research assistant at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, under the super-
vision of Charles D. Michener. LaBerge enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Entomology
and was initially interested in continuing his ant studies from North Dakota. How-
ever, he took on a project within bee systematics, just like the other two students in
Michener’s lab: Jerome G. Rozen, Jr. (Bachelor in 1950 with a comparative morphologi-

cal study of andrenid genitalia) and William P. Stephen [Ph.D. in 1952 with a revision
of Colletes Latreille (Colletidae)]. LaBerge earned his Ph.D. with a systematic revision
of Melissodes in 1955 and, immediately after graduation, was hired as Assistant Profes-
sor and Museum Curator at the University of Kansas, basically assuming Michener’s
duties during the laer’s sabbatical in Brazil. It was at the end of this period in Kan-
sas that LaBerge met the inuential Brazilian bee taxonomist, Jesus Santiago Moure
(1912–2010) (Engel et al., 2012). LaBerge was very fond of Moure, often mentioning
how much he liked him as a person and scientist. They co-authored a few papers and
maintained a continuous communication for several years, exchanging life experienc-
es and their interests in bees. In a leer sent to Moure on 11 April 1958, LaBerge wrote:
“I am planning to be married in the beginning of August. I have found a lovely
girl in my home town who grew up while I was away. A romance carried on in spite
of over 600 miles must, necessarily, be mediated largely by the postal Dept. She likes
to travel as much as I, so perhaps after a year or two a trip to Brasil may be feasible...”.
In 1956, LaBerge moved to Ames, Iowa, where he worked as Assistant Professor in
zoology at Iowa State University until 1959. Then, from 1959 to 1965, LaBerge moved
to Lincoln, Nebraska, where he worked as Associate Professor in entomology at the
University of Nebraska. There, his three children were born. In 1965, LaBerge nally
moved to Champaign, Illinois, where on 1 September he joined the Illinois Natural
History Survey (INHS) rst as Associate Taxonomist and then as Professional Scien-
tist (Fig. 2). He remained at the INHS until his retirement in 1994. In addition to his
primary positions he was also appointed as Adjunct Professor in entomology at the
University of Illinois (1969), and served as acting chief (1980–1981) and section head
(1979–1989) of the survey. He also served in 1982 as Program Director of Systematic
Biology at the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C.
LaBerge contributed extensively to our understanding of New World bees. The
majority of his publications are on the systematics of bees but some focus on his initial
passion, ants, as well as wasps and diverse aspects of bee biology including pollina-
tion. He also wrote numerous reports on diverse organisms and topics (Appendix
I). His revisions on Melissodes, and in particular, Andrena, the laer of which were
published over many years beginning in 1964 and completed decades later, are sim-
ply outstanding. They include the study of a tremendous amount of material (nearly
170,000 specimens in total) that he carefully examined to understand morphological
variations and species limits. Every single specimen bears an individual identication
label and this material may be found in institutions throughout North America and,
in fact, in many foreign repositories. This has allowed other researchers to keep track
of the specimens he studied when conrming identications, and particularly when
testing species concepts and hypotheses. His descriptions are quite detailed and often
well-illustrated with line-drawings, facilitating species identication of these diverse
and taxonomically challenging genera. He made an amazing eort to record and ana-
lyze oral relationships, biogeographical paerns, as well as variation in some mor-
phological characters for each species. Because of the depth and degree of detail in his
work, he was able to stabilize the circumscription of many species in addition to the
discovery of more than 100 new species in Andrena and 59 in Melissodes (Appendix II).
A tremendous enhancement of his papers was made by the inclusion of keys to the nu-
merous species, and these he sometimes corrected or updated in subsequent papers.
In addition, he made aempts to understand the phylogenetic relationships of the spe-

cies and subgenera of these lineages, a particularly challenging process for groups
that are so diverse and sometimes quite homogeneous in many characters, and was
among the few meliologists of the day coding characters for such analyses. Interest-
ingly, several of the relationships he recovered and proposed have been corroborated
by more recent anlyses (e.g., Dubiky et al., 2010). Amazingly, despite the amount of
time required to tease out the complexities of genera such as Andrena and Melissodes,
LaBerge was able to devote his energies and talents to other groups as well, produc-
ing equally important works such as that on Tetraloniella Ashmead (Apidae). LaBerge
had also planned to work on other North American genera as evidenced by several
manuscript names associated with specimens in insect collections. For example, he
intended to revise the genus Anthidium Fabricius (Megachilidae) for North America
with Elbert R. Jaycox (1923–2004), Professor of Apiculture and close colleague from
the University of Illinois.
LaBerge was able to train and mentor several graduate students, among which
were Adolfo Molina-Pardo (Ph.D., 1973), John C. Marlin (M.Sc., 1973), Lloyd R. Davis,
Jr. (M.Sc., 1974), Martha N. Schrader (M.Sc., 1977), Eugene R. Miliczky (Ph.D., 1985),
and Steven L. Heydon (Ph.D., 1988). His students remember him as a quiet, kind, and
honest man. One of them still remembers the day when he asked him to be his advisor
in a systematic project. “He looked at me and told me: you are welcome to work with
me, but you probably won’t nd a job”. Denitely not the most encouraging start, but
LaBerge was sincere about the dicult job market faced by professional systematists;

party in 1994; and in the collections of the Illinois Natural History Survey in 1986 (photographs

however, he proved to be wrong because his students went on to successful careers.
LaBerge was as commied to his students as he was to research. He helped them
in any way he could to promote their academic and personal development and suc-
cess. He knew the importance of mentoring and the impact this activity could have to
future generations. For example, in another leer sent to Moure on 28 August 1970,
LaBerge wrote:
A Columbian [sic] student, Adolfo Molina, came to me last year to learn some-
thing about bee systematics. He has since studied the classication of bees, learned to
recognize the genera and studied the species of Xylocopa in our collection...I hope to
cultivate Adolfo’s interest in systematics before he returns to Columbia. It could be
important to have a Meliologist collecting in that area”.
No doubt that LaBerge was successful at cultivating Molina’s interest in bees and
in passing on his knowledge. Molina completed his Ph.D. by studying the phyloge-
netic relationships of some subgenera of Andrena using phenetic methods. Once back
in Colombia, Molina became a professor at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia,
Medellín, and facilitated early studies of the native bee fauna by assisting Guiomar
Nates Parra, a honey bee geneticist who had also recently returned to Colombia and
become interested in native bees (Gonzalez & Engel, 2013). Thus, arguably, the grow-
ing bee research that we see today with Colombia’s rich bee fauna was in part inspired
by LaBerge. The same may also be said for systematic meliology in Mexico as it was
LaBerge who rst cultivated the professional interests of Ricardo Ayala and assisted
him in developing his start in bee taxonomy.
LaBerge was known as “Wally” by his friends and colleagues, and we can only
concur that he was a person very willing to share his knowledge, kindly helping to
identify specimens and sharing stories from his long career as a bee systematist. His
academic standards were very high and once it became dicult for him to achieve
such a standard due to health issues, he stopped publishing, focusing instead on his
retirement and humanistic projects, such as Habitat for Humanity. His last publica-
tions on the systematics of Andrena were with Robbin W. Thorp, Professor Emeritus of
the University of California, Davis. These contributions concluded a very long and im-
portant revision of the genus that began as a prodromus 41 years earlier. The publica-
tion from 2012 (Appendix I) was based on the identications he had made years prior.
LaBerge was a commied Catholic and a member of the St. Patrick’s Church com-
munity, where he was elected to the Parish Council and served as a Eucharistic minis-
ter. He was a devoted father and grandfather who played piano and enjoyed garden-
ing, baking, and working at home. He also enjoyed nature and often took his family
on road trips to Colorado, California, and North Dakota. LaBerge passed away peace-
fully at the age of 86 at Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana, surrounded by family. He
is survived by his brothers (Tom, Dick, and Donny), his sisters (Frances and Suzanne),
his son (Daniel), two daughters (Lesle and Laura), and three grandchildren. Several
bees have been named in honor of LaBerge, along with one leaf beetle and one mite
(Appendix III).

The Journal of Meliology is an international, open access journal that seeks to rapidly
disseminate the results of research conducted on bees (Apoidea: Anthophila) in their
broadest sense. Our mission is to promote the understanding and conservation of wild and
managed bees and to facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers and the
public worldwide. The Journal covers all aspects of bee research including but not limited to:
anatomy, behavioral ecology, biodiversity, biogeography, chemical ecology, comparative
morphology, conservation, cultural aspects, cytogenetics, ecology, ethnobiology, history,
identication (keys), invasion ecology, management, meliopalynology, molecular
ecology, neurobiology, occurrence data, paleontology, parasitism, phenology, phylogeny,
physiology, pollination biology, sociobiology, systematics, and taxonomy.
The Journal of Meliology was established at the University of Kansas through the eorts of
Michael S. Engel, Victor H. Gonzalez, Ismael A. Hinojosa-Díaz, and Charles D. Michener in
2013 and each article is published as its own number, with issues appearing online as soon
as they are ready. Papers are composed using Microsoft Word® and Adobe InDesign® in
Lawrence, Kansas, USA.

Article
Two new species from Mexico, Melissodes (Tachymelissodes) sonorensis and M. (Melissodes) tescorum, are described in this paper. The previously undescribed males of M. cerussata LaBerge and M. baileyi Cockerell are described. Notes concerning the key to species of the subgenus Callimelissodes are given. New records of the following poorly known species of Melissodes are included: M. opuntiella, M. sphaeralcea, M. fimbriata, M. baileyi, M. apicata, M. mitchelli, M. intorta, M. flexa, M. maesta, M. cerussata, M. expolita, M. fasciatella, M. floris, M. hymenoxidis, M. perpolita, M. relucens, M. saponellus, and M. submenuacha.
Article
Keys to the females and males and diagnoses of the American subgenera of the genus Andrena are presented in this paper. Previously described subgenera recognized in this work are as follows: Callandrena Cockerell, Scaphandrena Lanham, Plastandrena Hedicke, Parandrena Robertson, Dactylandrena Viereck, Andrena Fabricius, Iomelissa Robertson, Oligandrena Lanham, Hesperandrena Timberlake, Micrandrena Ashmead, Gonandrena Viereck, Opandrena Robertson, Cnemidandrena Hedicke, Simandrena Perez, Thysandrena Lanham, Taeniandrena Hedicke, Ptilandrena Robertson, Trachandrena Robertson, Xanthandrena Lanham, Diandrena Cockerell, Leucandrena Hedicke, Melandrena Perez, Gymnandrena Hedicke, Scoliandrena Lanham, Onagrandrena Linsley and MacSwain. The following five new subgenera are described: Eremandrena, Larandrena, Tylandrena, Geandrena, Chaulandrena.
Article
The preserved contents in nests of mud-dauberwasps recovered from archaeological investigations may provide data to the archaeologist on dating and local environmental conditions at the time of site occupation. In addition, a unique, butneglected, opportunity is afforded the entomologist to study remains not otherwise available.
Article
As irrigation becomes more widespread, following the recognition that lack of water is all too often the principal factor limiting crop growth, new problems arise in the changed environment and old ones loom large. Not least are those concerned with various aspects of the growth and control of water weeds, the subject of the present article. The outlook for aquatic herbicides is promising: local successes may well foreshadow a general advance.
Article
Seven Malaise traps obtained 1308 bees in six families, 16 genera, 60 species, and 27 morphospecies during 1991 through 1993 in three shale-barrens subhabitats with over 200 melittophilous angiosperm species in western Maryland, U.S.A. The total sample had a mean of 15 specimens collected per species. Annual samples varied markedly. As a group bees were more common in shale-barrens openings compared to the forest and forest-opening's ecotone. From one through five genera occured only in one of the three subhabitats, with the openings having the greatest number of unique genera. Forest managers should take measures to maintain shale-barrens' openings because they are prime bee areas.
