From Seed Grant to published paper!

Primary school sting nets new wasp species

ACSA is so pleased that the Seed Grant awarded to Erinn Fagan-Jeffries in 2019 has allowed her to complete her dream project!! Four regional schools in South Australia collected insects using Malaise traps, and all four found and named new species of parasitoid wasp!

Dr Erinn Fagan-Jeffries helping students to check whether there were any insects flying inside the newly set-up Malaise trap at Ramco Primary School.

Erinn’s paper has been published in Zootaxa and you can read a summary by the University of Adelaide here.

Congratulations Erinn!
