( Figs 1–3, 5View FIGURES 1 – 7. 1 – 3, 5, 8–10View FIGURES 8 – 14. 8 – 10)

E. ( Eucharisca  ) bytinski-salzi Bouček 1956: 257–259. Type data: Israel: Bat Yam. Holotype ♀, by original designation. Type depository: NMPC (National Museum (Natural History), Prague, Czech Republic).

Material examined. EGYPT: 1 ♂, 3 ♀, Kom Oshim (Fayoum) [29? 30 ′ 22 ″N; 30? 54 ′ 50 ″E], 21.x. 2010; 1 ♂, Kom Oshim, 4.xi. 2010, leg. Gadallah & Edmardash (CUE). ISRAEL: 1 ♀ (holotype), Palestine (Bat Yam), 9.vi. 1919, leg. Bytinski-Salz, UCRC_ENT 334451 (NMPC); 1 ♂ (allotype), Palestine, 6.ix. 1948, leg. Bytinski-Salz, UCRC_ENT 334453 (NMPC).

Distribution. Israel (Bouček 1956), Egypt (new record).

Hosts. Collected very close to the nest of Cataglyphis bicolor (Fabricius)  ( Formicidae  : Formicinae  ) around the roots of the field binweed, Convolvulus arvensis  L. ( Convolvulaceae  ). We suspect this to be the host because Eucharis (Eucharisca) bedeli Cameron  was reared from C. bicolor (Bedel 1895)  .
