a suggestion
general info about chalcidoids and excellent, concise, well-illustrated family outlines are at --how about using this url instead?
the problem is, the intro has a link to the DB search -- but not the other way around, so those who go directly to the DB using your url are totally unaware of the bounty of general info available

Good point.
Good point, I'll add it to the description, and give both links.

title changed?
it's 'Universal Chalcidoidea Database' now...
(i also believe that authorship is very important and would add, 'by J.S. Noyes')

Done, thank you for the tip.
