About this book

Language: French with bilingual identification keys in English and French

This new volume of the Faune de France deals with solitary wasps of the family Vespidae found in metropolitan France: 29 genera and 122 species of the subfamily Eumeninae (potter wasps) and 2 genera and 4 species of the subfamily Masarinae (pollen wasps). These wasps are frequently found in France and arouse curiosity by their behaviours. Who has not wondered what the animal was that built these little pottery contraptions stuck to the top of the grass containing caterpillars? In this book the reader will learn that these are solitary wasps of the subfamily Eumeninae.

Like all volumes in this series, this is a reference book, which brings together all the information known to date on the taxonomy, biology, ecology and distribution of the Eumeninae and Masarinae of metropolitan France. It contains 64 line figures illustrating morphological characters, and 67 colour photographs, which illustrate the characters of the genera given in the text. The identification keys in French and English allow the identification of all species and subspecies of France and all European genera.

This book, written by Bruno Gereys, an amateur entomologist who specialises in these groups, is intended for any amateur or professional naturalist wishing to correctly identify these wasps.

Ce nouvel ouvrage de la Faune de France traite des guêpes solitaires de la famille des Vespidae soit pour la France métropolitaine : 29 genres et 122 espèces d’Eumeninae et 2 genres et 4 espèces de Masarinae. Ces guêpes se rencontrent fréquemment dans notre environnement et ne manquent pas de susciter la curiosité par leurs comportements. Qui ne s’est pas demandé, un jour, quel était l’animal qui construisait ces petites poteries collées en haut des herbes et contenant des chenilles ? Vous apprendrez dans cet ouvrage qu’il s’agit de guêpes solitaires de la sous-famille des Eumeninae !

Comme toutes les Faune de France, il s’agit d’un ouvrage de référence, qui réunit l’ensemble des informations connues à ce jour sur la taxinomie, la biologie, l’écologie et la répartition des Vespidae Eumeninae et Masarinae de France métropolitaine. Il comprend 322 pages, 64 figures au trait illustrant des caractères morphologiques, ainsi que 67 photographies couleurs qui illustrent dans le texte l’essentiel des genres. Les clés d’identification en Français et en Anglais permettent l’identification de toutes les espèces et sous-espèces de France et de tous les genres européens.

Cet ouvrage, écrit par Bruno Gereys, un entomologiste amateur spécialiste du groupe, est destiné à tout naturaliste amateur ou professionnel désireux d’identifier correctement ces guêpes.
