Abstract:   (1168 Views)
In this survey, 116 species of 39 genera and 12 families from two sections Apiformes and Spheciformes of the superfamily Apoidea have been recorded from Georgia (Sakartvelo). Among them, one genus Polemistus de Saussure, 1892 and 39 species are new country records. This is just part of studied and collected material, therefore the identification continues.
