ABSTRACT. New data on the distribution of 26 species of sphecid digger wasps in Palaearctic are given. Isodontia paludosa (Rossi, 1790), Prionyx niveatus (Dufour, 1854), Podalonia ebenina (Spinola, 1839), Ammophila adelpha Kohl, 1901, and A. tekkensis Gussakovskij, 1930 are newly recorded from Russia, as are Parapsammophila turanica F. Morawitz, for Mongolia, Sceliphron curvatum (F. Smith, 1870) and Podalonia fera (Lepeletier de Saint Fargeau, 1845) for Georgia; the distribution patterns of other species have also been enlarged. The new synonymy of Podalonia flavida (Kohl, 1901) = Podalonia rothi (de Beaumont, 1951), syn.n. is proposed.
