ABSTRACT. New faunistic information on 12 species from 9 genera of spider wasps (Pompilidae) from the Karadag State Nature Reserve, Crimea Peninsula is provided. These were collected in 2019 from the reserve by means of Malaise traps sited in localities at coordinates: 44°54’47.57“N, 35°12’02.38”E (22 m a.s.l.), 44°54’46.70”N, 35°11’59.42”E (27 m a.s.l.) and 44°56’23.79“N, 35°14’11.11”E (172 m a.s.l.), and by occasional sweeping with an entomological net. Six species, Eoferreola manticata (Pallas, 1771), Aporinellus moestus (Klug, 1834), Evagetes pectinipes (Linnaeus, 1758), Anoplius viaticus (Linnaeus, 1758), Priocnemis exaltata (Fabricius, 1775) and Priocnemis pusilla (Schioedte, 1837), are recorded from the reserve for the first time, and five species, Auplopus rectus (Haupt, 1927), Anoplius concinnus (Dahlbom, 1843), Arachnospila sogdianoides (Wolf, 1964), Aporus unicolor Spinola, 1808 and Cryptocheilus notatus (Rossi, 1792) are new to the Crimea Peninsula.
