Illustrated keys to North-Western European species of Microterys Thomson and Western European species of Discodes Förster (Hymenoptera, Encyrtidae), natural enemies of soft scale insects

Field Trips / Research Stays


It's the aim of this project to enable amateur entomologists, and broadly trained entomologists, to identify North-West European Microterys Thomson species and identify Western European species of Discodes Förster, by using the projected illustrated keys + diagnoses to identity these parasitic wasp genera.


Biological control of insect pests is of importance to the society, and thus are keys to identify natural enemies of insect pests of great importance to the society too.
