  • Abstract A cladistic analysis based on mitochondrial DNA and morphology of 40 species of Polistes is presented. Thirty-six New World species are treated with attention to classical taxonomic views, including subgeneric, species-group, and species membership. No previously proposed species groups are supported. Variants that have been sometimes thought conspecifics, including P. erythrocepahlus and P. infuscatus, are found to be more distinct than earlier taxonomy would suggest. Combination of… CONTINUE READING
