Hymenoptera Institute Collection

Specimen Records: 17,023
Media Records: 2,300
iDigBio Last Ingested Date: 2017-07-10

The Hymenoptera Institute Collection is a collection of largely parasitic Hymenoptera housed in Michael Sharkey’s Lab in the Entomology Department (Agricultural Science Center North) at the University of Kentucky. The museum houses over 350 drawers of Hymenoptera focusing on Braconidae, with the primary focus on the braconid subfamily Agathidinae. The braconid collection is of world-scope, having received samples from all continents except Antarctica and is primarily used to describe new species and conduct molecular phylogenetics studies. Major recent projects include the Thailand Biodiversity Project (TIGER), the Columbia Biodiversity Project, and the Hymatol Project (phylogeny of Hymenoptera). More information can be found at the Sharkey Lab webpage: http://sharkeylab.org/sharkeylab/sharkeyProjects.php
