Ropalidia marginata

Ropalidia marginata

Ropalidia marginata is an Old World species of paper wasp found in Pakistan, peninsular India, Sri Lanka, South-east Asia and Australia. It was originally described by Fabricius in 1793 under the name Vespa ferruginea, but that name was preoccupied, so the oldest available name for the species is that given to it later by Lepeletier in 1836. One of its subspecies, R. marginata jucunda from New Guinea and Australia, was described in 1898, and two others, R. marginata rufitarsis from Myanmar and R. marginata sundaica from Indonesia and the Malay Peninsula, were described in 1941.
