Wasp species discoveries, new for Texel island


This video says about itself:

The life cycles of mud wasps, paper nest wasps and bumblebees provides a detailed case study of the reproductive and survival strategies used by living creatures within an ecosystem.

Warden Erik van der Spek on Texel in the Netherlands reports about small wasps in the Slufter area in the island.

One wasp species found there was Anteon exiguum. So far, this species had only been reported, rarely, in the continental Netherlands; not on Wadden Sea islands.

Another species was Goniozus claripennis; also a new species for the Wadden islands.

Texel bumblebees: here.
