List of honeybee races

Races of honeybees (Apis mellifera)

This is not an exhaustive list. Additions and information on each race are welcomed. "Pure" representatives of any race are becoming rarer, however the best chance to do so is in the native area. In the Americas, there has been a great deal of mixing; more than an approximation of the predominant race would require DNA analysis. Color of the bees, when referred to, is more pronounced in queens and drones; workers are much less differentiated.
