The Social Wasps of the Americas Excluding the VespinaeBy Richards, O.W.
British Museum (Natural History), 1978
vii + 580 pp. and 4 colour plates. Provides keys to all the genera and species of New World Polistinae. Keys are poorly illustrated and in many cases only useful for experts. Key to Polistes difficult to use because it also includes the numerous Central and South American species. Separation of females of the widespread, hypervariable P. fuscatus from related species often inaccurate. Key to Polistes males does not work for most species.

None Unfinished Ms, 1996
This book was meant to be published around 96/97 but was rejected by the publisher at the last minute. Very few manuscripts were made but this lost work fell into obscurity. Recently a scan has been made to salvage this lost work. In comparison to the original book there is much added and the finished product would have turned out great.

Entomologica Americana, 1932
This is the first major revision of North American Vespinae and Vespinae systematics in general. This review provides keys to the North American species as well as provides extensive distributional data and biological notes. Additions and corrections to this publication contaning distributional, biological, and nomenclatiorial information was added in two subsequent publications (1935 and 1941). Links are provided to those below.
Additionally provided below is Bequaert's divisions of the Vespinae which is a prequel to this review and deals with all known species of the Vespinae worldwide that were known at the time.
