The goal is to provide comprehensive taxonomic monographs in four key groups of parasitic Hymenoptera. The project will address the taxonomic needs in four families representing the four major lineages (superfamilies) of parasitic Hymenoptera: 1) Braconidae (superfamily Ichneumonoidea), 2) Encyrtidae (superfamily Chalcidoidea), 3) eucoiline Figitidae (superfamily Cynipoidea), and 4) Diapriidae (superfamily Proctotrupoidea).
