The Chrysididae Species File is a taxonomic database of the Chrysidid subfamilies Amiseginae and Loboscelidiinae. These understudied wasps are believed to be obligate egg-parasitoids of stick insects (see Phasmida Species File). The goal of this database is to provide a central point for information about these wasps, including their host relationships which are at present poorly understood. It is hoped that an up-to-date and centralised database will facilitate studies on these enigmatic insects, both by hymenopterists and phasmatologists.

To see information contained in the database, use the links across the top of the page.  Click on Search to find a specific taxon or other kinds of information.  Clicking on Taxa will make the order Chrysididae your current taxon unless you have previously moved to a different taxon in this session.

This website and database use Species File Software.  Information about the design and use of SFS may be found on a separate website.
