Review of the genus Ammobatoides Radoszkowski, 1867 (Hymenoptera: Apidae, Nomadinae) from Russia and neighbouring countries 

MAXIM YU. PROSHCHALYKIN, ARKADY S. LELEJ

Abstract


Three species of Ammobatoides are reviewed. One new species, Ammobatoides radoszkowskii sp. nov. (Russia and North China) is described and illustrated. A male lectotype is designated for Paidia melectoides Radoszkowski, 1872. One new subjective synonym is established: Ammobatoides scriptus (Gerstaecker, 1869) =Paidia melectoides Radoszkowski, 1872, syn. nov. A key to species for both sexes is given.
