The first checklist to the 225 genera and 1169 reported species-group taxa of aculeate
wasps of Peru is presented. The list is based on a literature survey and examination
of Peruvian entomological collections and include locality references for each taxon.
Bibliographic references for the identification of families, genera, and species are
provided when available. The occurrence data are published in addition as a downloadable
file (doi: 10.3897/zookeys.15.196.app.2.ds, doi: 10.3897/zookeys.15.196.app.3.ds,
and 10.3897/zookeys.15.196.app.4.ds) and were uploaded onto GBIF infrastructure simultaneously
with the publication process. The following new combinations are proposed: Ancistroceroides
cirrifer (Zavattari, 1912), Ancistrocerus epicus (Zavattari, 1912), and Stenodynerus
corallineipes (Zavattari, 1912).
