Catalogue of Namibian fig wasps

(Life: Kingdom: Metazoa (animals); Phylum: Arthropoda; Class: Hexapoda; Order: Hymenoptera;  Superfamily: Chalcidoidea)

 

Fig wasps have yet to be reared from a number of fig tree species in Namibia. Consequently the following checklist is far from complete. An idea of the fig wasp species potentially associated with the fig tree species that are present in Namibia may be obtained from the checklist of Afrotropical fig wasps. Fig wasp species recorded from these host trees elsewhere in Africa are also likely to be present in Namibia, although the total fig wasp species assemblage associated with a particular host tree is not always complete throughout the range of the host.
