* The extension of to more countries and races requires a change of nomenclature. Each association will be identified by a country code by ISO 3166-ALPHA-2 and a number. The bee race/subspeices will by identified by the association. For association active in several races, separate number will be given.

** For BeeBreed, Apis mellifera carpatica denotes the bee populations which are in Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine protected by law under this name. As the breeding population in Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine is relatively separated from other countries due to protection laws, they are treated as a separate breeding population in BeeBreed. This does not imply any statement whether A.m.carpatica is a valid subspecies name by means of the International Code on Zoological Nomenclature. For more details, see here (PDF).
