Vermont specimen records of bees, excluding Bombus and Xylocopa, from the Zadock Thompson Zoological Collection at the University of Vermont. Specimens were identified and labels digitized between 2019 and 2021 as part the Vermont Wild Bee Survey. Identifications done by Sam Droege and Spencer Hardy, additional species-level identifications will be added as they are completed. See Bombus and Xylocopa records here: https://www.gbif.org/dataset/155ad75a-6721-4fc5-9c94-4eef447ee650
