Ichneumonidae is one of the largest families of organisms in the world – it contains an estimated 100,000 species, more species than all vertebrates combined. If you’re not impressed by sheer numbers, the thing that I find truly amazing about all that species richness is the amount of variation in life history that has come along with all that diversification.
