AR Pompilids Distribution

Working list of the proven Pompilidae for Arkansas. Specimens in the museum plus my collecting and Edward Trammel's collecting and sightings. Listed with most widely collected in the top and rarer collections in categories below. Will be updated as info available. Presently these may be more a reflection of past trapping and locations near the museum in the NW counties than true distributions. Red counties are from literature and are not in the UA museum. Blue counties from bugguide.
