oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - New and little known. species of Cerceris Latreille, 1802 from central and southern Africa (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae)
A new species, Cerceris bambesae, is descriptionbed from the Congo, and a new subspecies of C. kalaharica Bischoff, namely, ovambo, from South West Africa. Redescriptionptions and figures are given of eight known species including four in which the male sex was hitherto undescriptionbed. Two homonyms, C. turneri Arnold and C. ponderosa Arnold, are recorded, the former renamed ventripilosa, the latter placed in synonymy with C. flavofemorata Arnold. The types of five known north African Palaearctic Cerceris species are briefly dealt with, of which C. schmiedeknechti Kohl is placed in synonymy with C. specularis Costa.
