Database of the European Chrysididae

Last updated on December 5th, 2023

The Database of the European Chrysididae has the goal to collect all the information on the chrysidids of the European fauna, particularly rich and differentiated. Up to now, the list consists of 649 taxa, of which 489 species and 160 subspecies.

WE ARE REVISING THE LIST OF SPECIES, REVIEWING SOME AND MERGING SOME OTHERS.  PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE LIST AND NUMBER OF SPECIES MAY CHANGE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.  ONCE COMPLETED, THIS MESSAGE WILL BE REMOVED.  UNTIL THEN THE LIST MUST BE CONSIDERED NON-FINAL.

Database of the Italian Chrysididae

The Database of Italian Chrysididae is a subset of the Database of European Chrysididae. It’s based on the Checklist of the Italian fauna by F. Strumia (19951) and following updates (Strumia 20012, 20053) and on other recent studies on the Italian fauna4-8.

The distribution data for the Administrative divisions are drawn from the literature and from the inspection of private9 and public10 collections. The effort of database filling has started in 2002 and will go on with the inspection of further collections, in order to confirm, correct and integrate the current data.

A key for the identification of the Italian genera of Chrysidids is available (in Italian language only).

  Our gratitude to our many collaborators.
