Cresson, E.T. (1872/1873) Hymenoptera Texana. Transactions of the American Entomological Society, 4: 153-292.

The present memoir is intended to contain a list of all the species of hymenoptera known to me from Texas, excepting those belonging to the families Chrysididae, Formicidae, and the smaller Chalcididae, which have not been studied.

Of the nineteen families studied in this paper, over six hundred species are enumerated, nearly three hundred of which appear to be new, and are herein described.
