ABSTRACT. New faunistic information on 17 species and subspecies from 6 genera of cuckoo wasps (Chrysididae) collected in 2020 from the Karadag State Reserve and the Tepe-Oba Nature Reserve (South-Eastern Crimea) are provided. Wasps were collected by Malaise and Merike traps set at the following coordinates: 44°54'42.51" N, 35°12'00.87" E; 44°54'49.21" N, 35°12'14.53" E; 44°56'21.35" N, 35°13'51.81" E; 44°54'57.00" N, 35°11'09.96" E; 45°01'18.72" N, 35°24'11.49" E; 45°00'29.02" N, 35°22'56.63" E. Eight species were newly recorded from Karadag State Reserve, of which Chrysura ignifrons (Brully, 1833) and Chr. laevigata laevigata (Abeille de Perrin, 1879) are new to the Crimean fauna. The data on the occurrence of species on the Karadag reserve are presented.
