About this book

A systematic treatise on a globally distributed family of wasps, the Chrysididae, also known as the gold wasps for their bright metallic colours, or cuckoo wasps, for their parasitic habits. 3,000 species are named in 84 genera, giving the first complete overview of their taxonomy for a hundred years. For each tribe or subfamily, there are discussions of evolution, important characters, keys to genera and relationships amongst taxa.
