oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Identity of four species of Mutillidae (Hymenoptera) described mistakenly as from Australia

Volume 46, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



It was discovered that four of the taxa which were descriptionbed as from Australia were based on specimens which had apparently been mislabelled and had been collected elsewhere. This report on these species brings the names involved to the attention of workers on the faunas of the other regions, viz., Palaearctic, Afrotropical and Neotropical. New synonymies for some of the taxa are present here.
