Notice the ant Camponotus pennsylvanicus at bottom right

Description of problem:

Step 1: Search for taxon Vespoidea in a defined area

Step 2: Click on “species”

Step 3: Notice that ants, spider wasps, and velvet ants are listed as along with actual vespoid wasps (ants, spider wasps, and velvet ants are not vespoids) also the number of observations listed for these non-vespoids is far lower than the actual number of observations in the defined area, for example the turfgrass ant listed 7 observation in the area on a search for vespoids, but searching the same area for turfgrass ants says 895 observations, which is correct, these are very common ants
