  Apocrita - Definition, explanation
The Apocrita include wasps, bees and ants, and are comprised of many families.
Among the non-social Apocrita, larvae are fed with captured (parasitized) prey or may be fed pollen and nectar.
The social Apocrita feed their young pollen, nectar, and as they mature perhaps seeds, fungi, or even non-viable eggs (ants).

In invertebrate biology, a tagma (plural tagmata) is a specialized grouping of arthropodan segments, such as head, body, and tail.
In Apocrita Hymenoptera (wasps, bees and ants), it consists of the three thoracic segments and the first abdominal segment (the propodeum).
Suborders Apocrita Symphyta Many families, see article Hymenoptera is one of the larger orders of Insects, comprising the sawflies, wasps, bees, and ants.

 Introductory page to Hymenoptera
The larvae of both the Bee Wolf to the left and the Red Wasp to the right are fed with prey the adults catch.
Hymenoptera are comprised of two groups od rather different animals: sawflies (Symphyta) and Wasps (Apocrita).
Because of their constriction and their size (many wasps are really small) the Apocrita always give a more vulnerable impression.

The group Apocrita has evolved from a single ancestral species and this ancestral species is not an ancestor of any insect that is not a member of the group Apocrita.
The waspwaist evolved in this ancestor of Apocrita and is a derived feature which is only found in Apocrita and is an indicator for their monophyly.
The most recent ancestor of all 'Symphyta' is also the most recent common ancestor of all Hymenoptera and therefore an ancestor of Apocrita, in other words it is not unique to 'Symphyta'.

 Sawfly
In the opinion of many experts, the most likely sister taxon to the Apocrita is the family Orussidae, the only Symphytan group which is parasitic.
This ovipositor, which is modified into a "stinger" in some members of the Apocrita, is not used as a weapon.
These "cenchri", which are absent in the suborder Apocrita, are located behind the scutellum on the thorax.

Date : 3/27/2007 Time : 6:05:27 PM Although there are varying definitions, the term wasp generally refers to the stinging members of the suborder Apocrita, order Hymenoptera, excluding the bees and ants.
Of the Apocrita two superfamilies, Sphecoidea (sphecoid wasps) and Vespoidea (vespoid wasps), comprise the so-called true wasps.
The sphecids (family Sphecidae) constitute a large group of graceful and colorful wasps that range from about 0.5 to 5 cm (0.25 to 2 in) in length.

Adult sawflies, except for those in the family Cephidae, have structures that latch onto the underside of the forewings to help hold the wings in place when the insect is at rest.

Less familiar, the Suborder Symphyta includes the sawflies and wood wasps, which differ from the Apocrita by having a broad connection between the thorax and abdomen.
Also, Symphyta larvae are mostly herbivorous and "caterpillarlike", whereas the Apocrita are largely predatory or parasitic.
Most familiar wasps belong to the Aculeata, a division of the Apocrita whose ovipositors are modified into a venomous stinger that includes ants and bees.

Chalcidoidea, superfamily of Apocrita (Hymenoptera), including Chalcididae and many other families, characterized by adults with reduced forewing venation, a pronotum separated from the tegula by the prepectus, no subantennal groove, and hind tibia without a spur modified for preening, including small to minute parasitic and phytophagous species (Riek, in CSIRO).

The suborder Symphyta includes the sawflies and wood wasps, which differ from members of Apocrita by having a broader connection between the mesosoma and metasoma.
In addition to this, Symphyta larvae are mostly herbivorous and "caterpillarlike", whereas those of Apocrita are largely predatory or "parasitic" (technically known as parasitoid).

 Gall wasp at AllExperts
Gall wasps (Cynipidae), also called Gallflies, are a family of the order Hymenoptera and are classified with the Apocrita suborder of wasps in the superfamily Cynipoidea.
Like all representatives of Apocrita, gall wasps have a distinctive body shape, the so-called wasp waist.
To that end, the first abdominal tergum (the propodeum) is conjoined with the thorax, while the second abdominal segment forms a sort of shaft, the petiole.

 Apocrita Information
Apocrita is a suborder of insects in the; order Hymenoptera.
The Apocrita include wasps, bees and ants, and are comprised of many families.
The Apocrita has historically been split into two groups, the "Parasitica" and the Aculeata, but these are rankless groupings in present classifications, if they appear at all.

Other characteristics: Abdomen is broadly joined to the thorax in Symphyta; constricted to form a "waist"-like propodeum in Apocrita.
Apocrita may resemble grubs or maggots, but with head capsules, and their habitat usually differs.
The wheat stem sawfly has been (and again is) a serious pest of wheat in the northern plains and Canada -- control is by resistant varieties and such cultural practices as tillage and crop rotation.
