Vas, Z. & Józan, Zs.: New data and key to the Mud-Dauber fauna
of Hungary (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae).
Abstract: The last key to the Mud-Daubers (Hymenoptera:
Sphecidae: Chalybion Dahlbom, 1843 and
Sceliphron Klug, 1801) of Hungary was published in 1957. Since
then, two new species were found in the
Hungarian fauna, the Oriental Mud-Dauber, Sceliphron curvatum
(Smith, 1870) (first reported in Józan 1998)
and the Nearctic Mud-Dauber, Sceliphron caementarium (Drury,
1773) (first reported here). Hence, the key to
the Mud-Dauber species required an update. The first records of
S. caementarium and further data to the
distribution of S. curvatum in Hungary are provided, and an
updated key to the Mud-Dauber species occurring
and expected to occur in Hungary is given.
