The four species of exotic bees described under the generic name Apis in William KIRBY' s "Monographia Apum Angliae" (1802) are reviewed. Two, A. pollinaris and A. druriella, are identified with subsequently described taxa; a third, A. iricolor, is a junior synonym of a species described by DRURY (1773); and the fourth, A. palmata, can not, in the absence of type material, be placed to species.
