Dealing exclusively with the Hymenoptera of the Ligurian region (Italy). Maximilian Spinola (1780-1857) was an Italian entomologist whose entomological contributions were mainly in the orders of Coleoptera, Hymenoptera and Hemiptera. Maxililian Spinola made important contributions to entomology describing many taxa. He came from a wealthy noble family in Genoa and much of his wealth derived from land held in Spain and South America from where he received many insects. His insect collection is preserved in the 'Museo Regionale di Scienze Naturali' in Turin and in the 'Museo storia naturale' in Pisa. A fine large copy. Horn & Schenkling 20905; Nissen ZBI, 3942
