Nomenclator Zoologicus

Euglossa is a genus of orchid bees (Euglossini). Like all their close relatives, they are native to the Neotropics; an introduced population exists in Florida. They are typically bright metallic blue, green, coppery, or golden.

Euglossa intersecta (formerly known as E. brullei) is morphologically and chromatically atypical for the genus, and resembles the related Eufriesea in a number of characters including coloration.[1]

Distribution

Euglossa occurs naturally from Mexico to Paraguay, northern Argentina, western Brazil, Jamaica,[2] and Trinidad and Tobago, but one species (E. dilemma) has recently been introduced to Florida in the United States [3]
