The Golden wasps collection at the Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Stuttgart (SMNS) contains about 780 specimens collected in Baden-Württemberg between 1900 and 2000. It has been expanded by some 30 specimens between 2012 and 2015, mainly through sampling efforts within the frame of the project GBOL (German Barcode of Life). The collection contains 61 species representing more than 50% of the known species spectrum for Middle Europe (120). Chrysidids are parasitoids of other insects, meaning that they kill their hosts at late stages of their development. Some species are cleptoparasites, what means that they use the food carried on by the host as resource for their larvae.


Data Project and Service

The Ministry for Science, Research and the Arts in Baden-Württemberg supported inventory, digitalisation and online access of the collections. Technical support is provided by the IT Center of the Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns within the projects BiNHum (Biodiversity Network of the Humboldt-Ring) and GFBio (German Federation for the Curation of Biological Data), both funded by the German Research Foundation DFG.
