Casinaria kriechbaumeri (Costa)

Material examined. Two females, Mongolia, Chentej aimak, 150 km ONO v. Öndörchaan, 10 km S vom Kerulen, 1000m, 30.VII.1965, leg. Z. Kaszab, Nr. 331, det. Z. Vas; specimens pinned, Id. No. HNHM-HYM 153112 , 153113 .— The specimens are deposited in the Hymenoptera Collection of HNHM (Budapest, Hungary) .

Remarks. First record for Mongolia. This species is widely known from the Western Palaearctic region to Kazakhstan ( Riedel 2018); hence, this Mongolian record represents the easternmost reported distribution of the spe- cies. Though the Mongolian specimens show a few minor morphological differences according to the recent re-description of the species ( Riedel 2018) (in the Mongolian specimens second tergite is slightly stouter, ca 1.6× as long as its apical width, and postnervulus intercepted at or slightly above its middle), considering the overall similarity it is well grounded to assume their conspecificity.
