Taeger A., Cincotta S., Susko E. (-2013) Kinds of Symphyta on Discover Life
[cite:595936]
work in progress: as of today, a mere checklist linked to taxon pages -- mostly blank but a few with mapped records and/or photos. will try to contact authors and find out what the status of the project is.

Taeger A., Blank S.M. (2011) ECatSym: Electronic World Catalog of Symphyta (Insecta, Hymenoptera). Program version 3.10
[cite:388934]
Taxonomic data base (with distribution info provided for every taxon included) maintained by people at the Deutsches Entomologisches Institut, Muncheberg, Germany, and adopted as BG's default taxonomy reference. See also discussion here.
"...the best thing to check for current usage of names" (Dr. Smith's comment)

Guides to the Genera and species of Eastern North American Bees
A set of online interactive guides to the eastern bees. Currently there is a guide to the genera and about 20+ guides to the species of some of those genera. We hope to have all the genera up on the web by the end of 2005 and then begin working our way west to include all the bees on the continent. Guides are designed for the advanced amateur to the professional. If possible we use common names rather than jargon, but at times it is necessary to get technical to separate out closely related species. We also plan to add more pictures and illustrations (including links to Bugnet photographs

The Bees of Florida
Extensive set of on-line keys by Dr. John Pascarella at Valdosta State University, Georgia. It uses photos of specimens, and, I believe, goes down to species level.

Has some interesting photos of other taxa, for example, wasps, but no keys or species identifications.

(Thanks to Tony DiTerlizzi for finding this!)
