PROJECT DATES:
From 17 March 2017 to 17 July 2018

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
CT traveled to the Mus�um National d'Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) in Paris, France, to image type specimens of Ceraphronoidea in the collections. This work will be submitted as a manuscript to the European Journal of Taxonomy. This work is supported by the U. S. National Science Foundation, Grant Numbers DBI-1356381 and DEB-1353252.

DATA DESCRIPTION:
The data includes 29 figure (.jpeg) files, three data tables and a standard operating procedure (.docx).

GENETIC SOURCE:
The superfamily Ceraphronoidea belongs to the Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Arthropoda, Order Hymenoptera, Suborder Apocrita, Class Insecta. No genetic data was used in this publication.

USAGE:
The image files can be opened with any photo viewer or editor. The datasheet and document files were created with Microsoft Office 2016, and can be opened with Microsoft Office Word and Microsoft Office Excel.
