Description

The dataset comprises biodata on specimens of apoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae, Sphecidae) held in the fund collection of the Institute for Evolutionary Ecology NAS Ukraine, as well as in the private collections of V. Gorobchyshyn and Y. Protsenko. The samples were collected during a number of expeditions and excursions in various habitat types, both natural and anthropogenic, across three administrative regions of Ukraine: Cherkasy, Kyiv, and Odesa, spanning the period from 1917 to 2021. All specimens are preserved as dry specimens on pins. Identification of insect samples was carried out by V. Gorobchyshyn and Y. Protsenko

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 3,059 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

Sampling Methods

The dataset comprises data on specimens collected from 1917 to 2021. The material on apoid wasps was collected during numerous expeditions in three administrative regions of Ukraine: Cherkasy, Kyiv, and Odesa. Different entomological methods were used to capture the adults, including sweeping with an air net, collecting separate individuals from flowers, wood, leaves, and other surfaces, using pan traps, trap-nests, and Barber traps. The captured specimens were narcotized in the field with ethylene glycol or preserved directly in 96% ethanol. Various identification keys were employed to identify species within the families Sphecidae and Crabronidae. The structure of male genitalia was used for species identification within certain species-groups of Crabronidae. The specimens were typically studied using an MBS-9 microscope. The material is housed in the collections of the Institute for Evolutionary Ecology NAS Ukraine, as well as in the private collections of V. Gorobchyshyn and Y. Protsenko.

Study Extent The dataset comprises record data on specimens of apoid wasps (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae, Sphecidae) held in the fund collection of the Institute for Evolutionary Ecology NAS Ukraine, as well as in the private collections of V. Gorobchyshyn and Y. Protsenko. The dataset covers the territory of Odesa, Kyiv and Cherkasy administrative regions of Ukraine. All specimens are preserved as dry specimens on pins.
Quality Control The authors are entomologists with extensive experience in the field of study. They are fully responsible for the quality of the data provided within the dataset.
