summary

This dataset is the databased part of the Hymenoptera from the entomological collections of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle (Paris). The Hymenoptera collection holds about 1 million specimens, out of which 6000 are types (the oldest being from Fabricius and Latreille) ; 95 % are stored pinned, the other being either in alcool (mostly Formicidae), or in microscopical preparations. The collection consists of 9 sections: Apoidea apiformes (21 % of the specimens), Apoidea spheciformes (8 %), Vespoidea (22 %), Formicidae (10 %), Chrysidoidea (2 %), Ichneumonoidea (20 %), Chalcidoidea (6 %), others Parasitica (4 %) and Symphytes (7 %). The collection also includes 30 authors’ collections (notably those of Benoist, Berthoumieu, Bosc, Brullé, Dufour, Boyer de Fonscolombe, Ferton, de Gaulle, Giraud, Girault, Granger, Lepeletier, Lucas, Pérez, Pic, Saussure, Seyrig, Sichel, Vachal…). The main represented geographical area are the Palearctic and Afrotropic zones (especially Madagascar with Seyrig’s collection), and for some groups the Nearctic.

The data set shared with speciesLink is of samples collected in South America.
