Is there anyone that knows more about Fabricius? Bibliography, etc. Is there a catalogue over the hymenoptera species that he described?
The reason is that I am "investigating" how/why he chose Pimpla as genus name.
Could it be because he had an interest in the greek antiques and Pimpla is a place in Macedonia where some of the mythical persons lived? Or is there another reason? Are there more of Fabricius genera named after greek antiquities????
