List of specimens for geometric morphometric analyses of the wing venation of wasps (Vespinae, Vespidae, Hymenoptera, Insecta)


A list of Vespinae specimens (Vespidae, Hymenoptera, Insecta) is given in this dataset. The information is related to data of wing landmark coordinates that are archived separately in PANGAEA (see Related to section, Abels & Wedmann 2021). The data were used in the geometric morphometric analyses of Abels & Wedmann (2022). This dataset includes 1025 Vespinae specimens analysed by Perrard et al. (2014, 2015). The following five specimens are added: Vespula rufa (photo "Rødveps Vespula rufa (Linnaeus, 1758)" by Arnstein Staverløkk CC BY-SA 4.0,, accessed 21.02.2021), Vespula nursei (Kumar & Carpenter 2018: Fig. 5), Vespula pensylvanica (Snelling 1981: Fig. 66) and the fossil Palaeovespa socialis (Poinar 2005: Fig. 14) and the species Vespula? hassiaca described in Abels & Wedmann (2022).
