Wasps of Colorado
Wasps are perhaps the most under-appreciated of all insects, yet remarkably diverse in form, complex in behavior, and critically important to ecosystem health. Your spottings, from social yellowjackets to solitary velvet ants, could greatly expand our knowledge of these amazing insects. *Edited by Project Noah management team to comply with user-created mission rules.

Please make sure your spotting is of an actual wasp, and not a fly, moth, true bug, or other insect that *mimics* a wasp. Images of wasps with prey or host animal are especially valuable. Detailed geographic location of your spotting can help improve our understanding of the geographic distribution of a given species. Lastly, please realize that images of living specimens may not be enough to identify the specimen to species, or even genus.
