Abstract

The Hymenoptera collection of the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil (MZSP) houses one of the most important collections for the Brazilian and Neotropical wasp faunas. The present catalogue lists the type specimens of Pompiloidea, Thynnoidea and Vespoidea (Insecta, Hymenoptera) deposited in the MZSP. The collection includes a total of 422 type specimens (66 holotypes, 28 lectotypes, 278 paratypes, 45 paralectotypes, and five syntypes), being 91 Pompiloidea (40 Mutillidae type specimens of 10 genera and 25 species, 51 Pompilidae type specimens of 4 genera and 27 species), 191 Vespoidea (15 genera and 86 species of Vespidae), and 18 Thynnoidea (eight genera and 12 species of Thynnidae). All information written in labels was compiled and is presented along with additional data from the original descriptions, MZSP records and other sources. We provide Specimage links to high-resolution photographs of holotypes and lectotypes at the Hymenoptera image database of the Ohio State University.

INTRODUCTION

The collection of Pompiloidea, Thynnoidea and Vespoidea (Hymenoptera) housed in the Museum of Zoology of the University of São Paulo (MZSP) is one of the most important scientific collections for the Brazilian and Neotropical wasp faunas, regarding the number of types, species and specimens, as well as taxonomic and geographic coverage. The earliest records of the collection date back to the early 20th century, when the collection still belonged to the Zoology section of the ‘Museu Paulista’, with material collected mainly by Hermann von Ihering (1850-1930) and by Hermann von Lüderwaldt (1865-1934) (Klingenberg & Brandão, 2005). Since then, the collection received several type specimens described by Adolpho Ducke, Clarence E. Mickel, Osvaldo H. Casal, Francisco J. Suárez, William J. Fox, Jean Brèthes, Colin R. Vardy, Lynn S. Kimsey, Hermann Friederich von Ihering, Joseph Zikán, and Owain W. Richards. Addionally, research projects such as the recent programs Biota/FAPESP, INCT-HYMPAR/Sudeste (CNPq/FAPESP), and PROTAX (CNPq/FAPESP) have collaborated greatly for the growth and maintenance of the collection.

This paper is part of a series of lists being published to cover the Hymenoptera type specimens deposited in the entomological collection of MZSP. Until this moment, the following catalogues have been published: ants (Brandão, 1991; Klingenberg & Brandão, 2005; Brandão et al., 2010; Esteves et al., 2011; Prado & Brandão, 2013; Ulysséa & Brandão, 2013; Ulysséa et al., 2015), bees (Ramos et al., 2015), “Symphyta” & “Parasitica” wasps (Onody et al., 2014) and Chrysidoidea wasps (Santos et al., 2017). These initiatives agree with the 72F of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN, fourth edition, January 1999) recommendation making information about these types available to researches. Additionally, images are also given complementing the catalogue and hopefully avoiding unnecessary movement of these unique specimens.

MATERIAL AND METHODS

In this catalogue, we adopted the classification of Pilgrim et al. (2008), which recognizes eight superfamilies in Aculeata: Apoidea, Chrysidoidea, Formicoidea, Pompiloidea, Scolioidea, Tiphioidea, Thynnoidea and Vespoidea. The MZSP collection has no types of Scolioidea and Tiphioidea; Chrysidoidea and Formicoidea types were already catalogued and Apoidea catalogue is in preparation. To address the type specimen’s current status, the following references were used: Catálogo Taxonômico da Fauna do Brasil (Oliveira et al., 2018) , Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS), Hymenoptera Online (HOL) and the Checklist and/or Catalog of Social Wasps (Carpenter, 2018).

All pertinent primary and secondary type specimens deposited at the MZSP were listed according to their original combination and in alphabetical order by family, subfamily, tribe, genus, and species. The names of all species are followed by the name of the author, year and page of the publication. Also, the current valid names are given for each species following by the author’s name and year.

For holotypes and lectotypes, a link is provided for high resolution photographs of the specimens in Specimage website (http://specimage.osu.edu) database of The Ohio State University, except the lectotypes of Megacanthopus collarisDucke, 1904, Mischocyttarus parallelogrammusZikán, 1935 and Mischocyttarus cristatus Zikán, 1935 that are currently under loan and could not be assessed for this work. For each specimens photographs of labels, head (frontal view), dorsal and lateral habitus are provided. Images were obtained in a Leica M205C magnifying stereoscope attached to a Leica DFC 295 video camera and with a DSLR camera model Cannon 70D and 18-55 mm lens. Ilumination system employed the low budget dome as proposed by Kawada & Buffington (2016). We used Leica LAS (Leica Application Suite V3.6.0) and Helicon Focus (Version 6.0.18) to assemble the series of images taken at different focus distances by z-stacking method. Small adjustments, such as brightness and contrast, were made using commercial software.

All information given here was taken from label data, MZSP records, published material and other available sources. The data labels are presented in the following sequence: type category, number and sex of specimens, current MZSP registration number, locality (country, state/province, city, and other locality details), date of collecting, trap and collector’s name. The labels were transcribed between apostrophes (‘ ’), indicating information from different labels attached to the same specimen. Abbreviated and additional information are presented in brackets ([ ]). Original data is provided in the original languages of the labels, while additional information is provided in English. Question marks are used when it was not possible to decipher the handwriting.

RESULTS

Exemplars here listed comprises a total of 301 type-specimens, being 91 of Pompiloidea (Mutillidae: 8 holotypes and 32 paratypes representatives of 10 genera and 25 species, Pompilidae: 20 holotypes, five lectotypes, 19 paratypes, and seven paralectotypes representatives of four genera and 27 species), 191 of Vespoidea (Vespidae: 34 holotypes, 23 lectotypes, 94 paratypes, 38 paralectotypes, and four syntypes representatives of 15 genera and 86 species), and 18 of Thynnoidea (Thynnidae: four holotypes, 13 paratypes and one syntype representatives of eight genera and 12 species).
