Karyotype evolution in different groups of Formicidae
These families include Ichneumonidae, Ormyridae, Eucollidae, Bethyliidae, Dryinidae, Sphecidae, Halictidae, Apidae, Tiphiidae, Mutillidae, Bradynobaenidae, Pompilidae, Vespidae and Formicidae
Next to Formicidae
, spiders are the most abundant group of predators in tropical lowland forest canopies (Adis et al.

The prey of the eastern pipistrelles we captured consisted of two families of Homopterans: Cicadellidae (leafhoppers), Delphacidae (planthoppers); two families of Coleopterans: Carabidae (ground beetles) and Scarabaeidae (scarab beetles); three families of Dipterans: Chironomidae (midges), Tipulidae (crane flies), and Trichoceridae (winter crane flies); two families of Hymenopterans: Ichneumonidae (ichneumons) and Formicidae
(ants); and one family of Hemipterans: Lygaeidae (seed bugs; Table II).
Most of the hymenopteran species present were Formicidae
, which may have been foraging on plants or tending plant-feeding insects.
Particularly impressive are sections dealing with Braconidae, Formicidae
, Crabronidae and Sphecidae, whose keys provide coverage beyond the UAE.
5) Yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets all belong to the Vespidae family (vespids); honeybees and bumblebees belong to the Apidae family (apids); and stinging ants belong to the Formicidae
Numerically, the family Formicidae
(separate from Hymenopteran per se) represents the greatest percentage of the stomach contents (49.

Expert estimates for different groups give the following figures of undesribed species in the Afrotropics: over 35 % for Diptera (Kirk-Spriggs & Stuckenberg 2009), 58 % for Formicidae
(Robertson 2000), over 50 % for East African marine invertebrates (Griffiths 2005), and as much as 84 % for Ichneumonidae (van Noort 2010).
