Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Seladonia sensu lato was recently partitioned by Pesenko, resulting in placement of New World species in Pachyceble, but this has not been generally accepted due in part to lack of support for monophyly of Pachyceble. In the Old World Seladonia sensu lato is often treated as a genus separate from Halictus.
