"The wasp species Ropalidia romandi is known to have a particularly dangerous sting.<refQueensland Museum (2011). "Paper Wasps: Fact Sheet" (PDF). Queensland Government. </ref>"

I do not see in this text that they cause more anaphylaxis? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 05:45, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

The source is about three genera: Polista, Romalidia and Vespula. The source mentions anaphylaxis, but not particularly with one species/genus. In any case, the source is about paper wasps, not anaphylaxis. Therefore the source should not be used for this article; it would be undue weight. Axl ¤ [Talk] 10:57, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

There is inconsistency between the introduction section:
"The term comes from the Ancient Greek: ἀνά ana against, and the Ancient Greek: φύλαξις phylaxis protection."
and the history section:
"The term comes from the Greek words ἀνά, ana, up, and φύλαξις, phylaxis, protection." -- (talk) 09:02, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
