back Taxonomy of Hymenoptera

The tree below does not consider the phylogenetic relationships, since many different visions are still discordant. According to the present-day classifications, the traditional sections (infraorders) 'Terebrantia' ('Parasitica') and 'Aculeata' of the Suborder 'Apocrita' have been abandoned in the direction of taxonomy based on Superfamilies.
