Although bees of the genus Augochlorella (Halictidae) are common over much of the United States, the interspecific relationships and biologies of the species are little understood. In an attempt to clarify some of the problems in this group, a taxonomic study was made of all species occurring north of Mexico and the biological and behavioral differences between the two species occurring in Kansas were investigated.This study is divided into two parts. Part I, a systematic account, concerns the species occurring in the United States. Those northern species ranging into Mexico and their close relatives are also treated. Part II is an account of observations on the biology and behavior of the two species, A. striata and A. persimilis, occurring in Kansas.
