In the last check list of bee species for Mato Grosso do Sul state, neither Ctenioschelus goryi (Romand, 1840) nor Mesocheira bicolor (Fabricius, 1804) were recorded from this state. Hopliphora velutina (Lepeletier & Serville, 1825
and Thalestria spinosa (Fabricius, 1804), although reported from Mato Grosso do Sul, were not previoulsy known in the Pantanal. This paper reports the first records and extends the current distributions of these 4 species of Ericrocidini and Epeolini bees in the Brazilian Pantanal.
