  journal={Entomological Review},
The distribution of halictid bees of the subfamilies Rophitinae and Nomiinae in the Palaearctic is analyzed based on the scheme of zoogeographic subdivision proposed by A.F. Emeljanov (1974). The species composition of the regional and subregional faunas is compared and the lists of Rophitinae and Nomiinae for these areas are given. The characteristic features of the regional faunas are discussed. The types of ranges of Rophitinae and Nomiinae in the entire Palaearctic are designated. A new… Expand
