Intermediate results of the study of the fauna of bees in the relict lime forest of Mountain Shoria (Kemerovo region) are given. 74 species of bees from 15 genera and 6 families were recorded, 8 species of them are newly registered in Kemerovo region. The family Apidae is dominating in the number of species (at the expense of bumblebees) and the family Colletidae (without taking into account the bumblebees) – in the number of exemplars, because of the numerous genus Hylaeus. The highest number of species belongs to the genera Bombus (15) and Andrena (14). The population of bees varies significantly during the summer season. Most of the recorded species of bees has very wide ranges of distribution, endemics and new taxa were not discovered.
