Abstract: The sawflies and aculeate Hymenoptera collected from eight malaise traps placed in oak savanna and three in nearby non-savanna habitat for the end of August, 1994 are listed. A total of 145 species were found in the oak savanna traps. The possibility that some of the taxa discovered are oak savanna specialists is discussed. Six species sampled appear to represent first Canadian records and an additional ten species, sampled from the same sites but outside of the time frame analyzed here, are also recorded as new for Canada. Two additional extralimital records are presented for prairie insects recorded East of Manitoba for the first time.
