Diagnostic Notes
The subfamily Apinae consists of the corbiculate Apidae and taxa from the Anthophoridae.

There is no known unique subfamily character that is present in all species, many such useful characters are lost in the cleptoparasitic species. Most species have a pygidial plate and well developed prepygidial fimbriae. The scopa is restricted to the hind leg and basitarsus.
