(Pensoft Publishers) The European and Mediterranean species of the paper wasp genus Polistes were revised by scientists at the SNSB-Zoologische Staatssammlung München. For the first time for this group, scientists applied an integrative taxonomic approach which combines traditional morphological methods with DNA barcoding. As a result, the researchers were able to identify a new species from Morocco. For this well-researched wasp group, this is a little sensation. The study is published in the open access journal ZooKeys.
