Considering the extent of the Philippine Islands, extending as they do over 1,200 miles of territory, our knowledge of the Hymenopterous fauna is singularly meager. More attention should be given to collecting these important insects. Since the islands came into the possession of the United States much material has been sent to the National Museum, and with the hope that more attention will be given to the collecting and study of this order in the Philippines, I give be-low a list of the known species, and describe most of the new species now in our collection.
