About this book

Language: English

Oktawiusz Wincenty Bourmeister-Radoszkowski was a renowned hymenopterologist and one of the founders of Russian Entomological Society. The Radoszkowski collection is housed in the Institute of Systematics and Evolution of Animals of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków. It currently contains nearly 30 000 specimens. Radoszkowski is considered as a pioneer in the study of Chrysididae because he described a large number of species, he was the first author to study the Central Asiatic chrysidids, and the first who recognised the taxonomic importance of male genitalia in this family. The Radoszkowski collection of cuckoo-wasps includes 183 types of Chrysididae representing 124 species and subspecies. The collection houses types described by Eversmann, du Buysson, Gribodo, Mocsáry, and most of all, Radoszkowski himself. Other Radoszkowski types of Chrysididae are deposited in Berlin, Budapest, Genova, Moscow, and Paris. The authors examined his collection in Kraków and provided an annotated catalogue. They designated seven lectotypes, revaluated two species, proposed four new combination, and ten new synonyms. Other nomenclatural and taxonomic changes are proposed and the pictures of seventy-nine type specimens are given.
