We sampled ultraconserved element (UCE) sequences from 235 taxa of andrenid bees (Hymenoptera: Andrenidae), including all genera of subfamily Andreninae and 98 out of 104 currently recognized subgenera of the genus Andrena. We used 419,858 aligned nucleotide sites from 1009 UCE loci to infer a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis of subfamily Andreninae.
