 Comments
       
  Comment: See Day (1979) & Ungricht et al. (2008) on an Apis rufa vs. A. bicornis controversy (both from Linnaeus 1758, p.175, they are now conspecific in Osmia). Kirby (1802) ('First Reviser' under ICZN Art. 24.2.2) used bicornis over rufa. Dalla Torre (1896) reversed this, and most works since have followed, using rufa. An ICZN petition & ruling would be required to use rufa over bicornis, and while this possibility is being considered ITIS will await further information
