A guide to Parasitic Hymenoptera ID by venation


Many families of hymenoptera can be recognised by their venation. This guide does not pretend to be comprehensive, and only includes parasitic groups. It should enable you to have an idea of which family your specimen is in and so which key to use to try and identify it. Some available keys are given at the end. Other features may be needed in some cases, if so these are included in this guide. The photos are in order of reduced venation.
