Visitors will find reliable information on the identification of insects from photographs and an overview of the exciting world of Hymenoptera. We offer photos from all families of Hymenoptera and from all areas worldwide! Also new: In addition to live photos, you will also find photos of mounted specimens that can help to underpin the identification of unknown insects. This will be further developed for Central Europe soon.
Our concept is straightforward: first register in the forum. There you can have your photos identified by the community. If there are photos of species missing in the gallery, or if they are of particularly good quality or show interesting subjects, you can upload the photos yourself to the gallery following an activation of your account. Please send us a message if you are interested in contributing to the Hymenoptera picture gallery. Uploaded photos will be validated by a specialist and approved for being publicly displayed. Please contact us in case you would like to submit larger quantities of pictures. We are looking forward to building up together with you the largest and most current Hymenoptera picture gallery on the web!
