Abstract

Our investigations were owned during the spring and summer periods in the region of Tizi-Ouzou (Algeria) on solitary and social bees. Among the Hymenoptera Apoidea listed on natural vegetation, we counted nine species and four subspecies not previously reported in Algeria. These species were distributed into five families: Colletidae, Halictidae, Andrenidae, Apidae and Megachilidae. These wild bees are captured in study plots located at different altitudes (between 180m and 840m). The taxonomic list of these species containing, geographical distribution, flight periods and visited flowers, was also reported.
