Muhammad Rasool, Muhammad Zahid and Muzafar Shah

A taxonomic survey of the solitary wasps (Hymenoptera: Vespidae: Eumeninae) was carried out from April, 2014 to November, 2016. During the study, a total of 51 specimens were captured representing four genera, Antepipona, Antodynerus, Delta and Rhynchium and eleven species. Eight of these species were identified as, Delta dimidiatepenne, Delta esuriens, Antepipona deflenda, Antepipona sibilans, Antodynerus flavescens, Rhynchium bruneum, Rhynchium carnaticum, and Rhynchium quinquecinctum while three species were identified up to genus level, Rhynchium, with the help of available literature but species not confirmed and may be new to science. Two species, Antepipona deflenda, and Rhynchium carnaticum are new for Pakistan while four species Antepipona sibilans, Antodynerus flavescens, Rhynchium bruneum and Rhynchium quinquecinctum are new to Swat.
