Mimumesa beaumonti (Van Lith, 1949), Pemphredon enslini Wagner, 1932, P. fabricii (Müller, 1911), P. mortifer Valkeila, 1972, P. podagrica Chevrier, 1870, P. wesmaeli (A. Morawitz, 1864), Passaloecus turionum Dahlbom, 1845, Polemistus abnormis (Kohl, 1888), Spilomena curruca (Dahlbom, 1843), Ammoplanus kaszabi Tsuneki, 1972, Pison atrum Spinola, 1808, Trypoxylon beaumonti Antropov, 1991, T. deceptorium Antropov, 1991, Crossocerus acantho- phorus Kohl, 1892, and Ectemnius meridionalis (A. Costa, 1871) are new for the Czech Republic. Crossocerus denticoxa (Bischoff, 1932) and Psenulus chevrieri (Tournier, 1889) are new species for Bohemia. Spilomena differens Blüthgen, 1953, Oxybelus lineatus (Fabricius, 1787), Ectemnius rugifer (Dahlbom, 1845), and Passaloecus pictus Ribaut, 1952 are new species for Moravia. Pemphredon baltica Merisuo, 1972, P. enslini, P. fabricii, P. mortifer, P. podagrica, P. wesma- eli, Spilomena differens, Trypoxylon beaumonti, Astata jucunda Pulawski, 1959, Miscophus mavromoustakisi de Andrade, 1953, and M. niger Dahlbom, 1844 are new for Slovakia. First reliable records of Cerceris albofasciata (Rossi, 1790) and Cerceris rubida (Jurine, 1807) from the Czech Republic, of Trypoxylon fronticorne Gussakovskij, 1936 from Bohemia, of Tachysphex tarsinus (Lepeletier, 1845) and T. unicolor (Panzer, 1809) from Slovakia are presented. Recent occurrence of Pemphredon baltica, Ammoplanus hofferi Šnoflák, 1943, A. pragensis Šnoflák, 1945, Dryudella pinguis (Dahlbom, 1832), Tachysphex nitidus (Spinola 1805), Miscophus spurius (Dahlbom, 1832), Trypoxylon fronticorne Gussakovskij, 1936, Oxybelus argentatus treforti Sajo, 1884, Crossocerus styrius (Kohl, 1892), Rho- palum gracile Wesmael, 1852, Harpactus formosus (Jurine, 1807), H. sareptanus (Handlirsch, 1888), and Cerceris sabulosa dahlbomi Beaumont, 1950 were con- firmed in the Czech Republic. Occurrence of Oxybelus argentatus debeaumonti P. Verhoeff, 1948 was confirmed in Bohemia. Occurrence of Mimumesa beaumonti (Van Lith, 1949), Oxybelus argentatus treforti, Gorytes foveolatus Handlirsch, 1888, Harpactus consanguineus (Handlirsch, 1888) and Tracheliodes curvitarsis (Herrich-Schäffer, 1841) was confirmed in Slovakia. Following species were con- ditionally removed from the fauna of the studied territory until the questionable material will be revised or new material found: Ammophila terminata F. Smith, 1856, Oxybelus latro Olivier, 1812, and Rhopalum austriacum (Kohl, 1899) from Bohemia; Cerceris bicincta Klug, 1835 and Astata rufipes Mocsáry, 1883 from the Czech Republic; Crossocerus heydeni Kohl, 1880 from Moravia; Sphex atropilosus Kohl, 1885, Mimumesa wuestneii (Faester, 1951), Diodontus medius Dahlbom, 1845, Pemphredon beaumonti Hellen, 1955, Passaloecus vandeli Ribaut, 1952, Astata gallica Beaumont, 1942, A. rufipes, Tachysphex mocsaryi Kohl, 1884, Nitela lucens Gayubo & Felton, 1981, Trypoxylon latilobatum Antropov, 1991, Crossocerus heydeni Kohl, 1880, and Crossocerus pullulus A. Morawitz, 1866 from Slovakia. Nysson susterai Zavadil, 1948, syn. nov., is considered a junior synonym of N. dimidiatus Jurine, 1807 and N. bohemicus Zavadil, 1948, syn. nov., considered a junior synonym of N. tridens Gerstaecker, 1867.
