Data from: Evolution of wing shape in hornets: why is the wing venation efficient for species identification?

Adrien Perrard, Michel Baylac, James M. Carpenter & Claire Villemant
Wing venation has long been used for insect identification. Lately, the characterization of venation shape using geometric morphometrics has further improved the potential of using the wing for insect identification. However, external factors inducing variation in wing shape could obscure specific differences, preventing accurate discrimination of species in heterogeneous samples. Here, we show that interspecific difference is the main source of wing shape variation within social wasps. We found that a naive clustering of wing...
