We present historical and current records of four wasp species of the family Scoliidae in Central Europe. Scolia hirta (Schrank) and Scolia sexmaculata (Müller) are common in Poland and the Czech Republic. They inhabit forest environments on sand layers, especially the Polish river valleys. Megascolia maculata (Drury) has been recorded only in some parts of the Czech Republic, while Colpa sexmaculata (F.) is considered extinct in the study region.


The paper presents information on Stelis minima Schenck, 1859, a species of cleptoparasitic bee new to Polish fauna representing the family Megachilidae. Stelis minima. probably inhabits most of Europe except for the southern and northern parts of the continent. The species was also found in the southern part of Finland, where it reaches its northern range limit (ca. 62°N). During the years 2002-2006 four specimens of S. minima were collected in the Kraków-Cze{ogonek}stochowa Upland (1 male) and Roztocze region (2 females and 1 male). All specimens were observed close to nests of probable host species of solitary bees - Chelostoma campanularum (Kirby, 1802) and Heriades truncorum (Linnaeus, 1758). The female of Stelis minima can be distinguished from other Central European species by the following characteristics: rounded head, clypeus about 1.5 times wider than its length, legs black, hind basitarsus almost parallel sided (not broadened on the distal part), distances between punctures on mesopleurae ca. as big as their diameter, posterior margins of metasomal tergites (T) black and without lateral bands of hair, T1 or T1-2 with small, lateral, yellowish white maculae; the maculae are sometimes absent. The male Stelis minima can be separated from other Central European species by the following characteristics: clypeus short (not covering mandibles), legs black, distances between punctures on mesopleurae and tergites T4-5 ca. as big as their diameter, posterior margins of metasomal tergites black and without lateral bands of hair, T1-2 or T1-3 with small, lateral yellowish white maculae, posterior margin of seventh tergite with short mid-process, posterior margin of third sternite with triangular emargination in the middle, posterior margin of fourth sternite with a tooth-like, mid-process.

The article presents new records of the following nine, very rare species of long-tongued bees (Megachilidae and Apidae): Heriades crenulatus Nylander, 1856; Megachile genalis Morawitz, 1880; Nomada atroscutellaris Strand, 1921; Nomada braunsiana Schmiedeknecht, 1882; Nomada conjugens Herrich-Schäffer, 1839; Nomada errans Lepeletier, 1841; Nomada guttulata Schenck, 1861; Nomada stigma Fabricius, 1804, and Nomada zonata Panzer, 1798. So far, the species are known from single or from just a few stands in Poland. For every species the following information was provided: Polish localities with their UTM coordinates, distribution and bionomics.

In the Kampinos National Park (Poland), which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, 47 caught per unit effort samples of Chrysididae were collected in 2000-2006. The aim of the study was to identify the factors promoting the diversity of this rarely studied group of parasitic wasps. A total of 722 specimens belonging to 37 species were recorded, including 18 threatened species and six others recently described as new to the Polish fauna. No chrysidids were recorded in forests, instead they were most abundant on fallow land (i.e. in open habitats), of which those located on dry soils were preferred over humid ones, just as by their endogeic (nesting in the ground) hosts. Many chrysidids that are parasites of hypergeic (nesting above the ground) species were significantly associated with old abandoned wooden buildings, where their hosts use holes in wood for nesting. In addition to the characteristics of the habitat sampled, its position in the land mosaic also determined the diversity of chrysidids. Their lowest abundance and species diversity were recorded in samples from different types of habitat, all located in a uniform environment (i.e. with few other habitats nearby), which limited the diversity of resources available within the flight ranges of chrysidids and their hosts. Our study, thus consistent with the concept that habitat heterogeneity enhances faunal diversity, brings important conclusions for the management of park landscapes: afforestation of open areas (both intentional and resulting from natural succession of plant communities) and removal of old abandoned wooden buildings may limit the land mosaicity and thus faunal diversity. © 2012 The Royal Entomological Society.

The genus Bergenstammia Mik of Poland is reviewed. Differential diagnosis for species recorded from this country, including Bergenstammia glacialis sp. nov. described from the alpine zone in the Tatra Mts. are provided. The newly described species was found in the postglacial cirque in the glacier-fed stream. A key to the species of Bergenstammia nudipes group is also given as well as photographs of wings, illustrations of male and female terminalia and known distributions for species are included. 2015 © Fundacja.

Thirty-one Tephritis species are recorded from Ukraine. Six species (T. brachyura Loew, T. conyzifoliae Merz, T. heliophila Hendel, T. mutabilis Merz, T. separata Rondani, T. tanaceti Hering, and T. valida Loew) are recorded for the first time from Ukraine; two species (T. crepidis Hendel and T. leontodontis De Geer) listed before without any references to material or locality are confirmed to occur in Ukraine, and two species on the list (T. conura Loew and T. hendeliana Hering) have not been confirmed yet by any available material, but possibly present in western and southern regions. © 2016 by A.
