Additions and corrections to the fauna of Lepidoptera of the Tula Province. 5.

SUMMARY. Additions and corrections to the list of Lepidoptera of Tula province is presented, which is comprised of 40 species, 28 of which are new to the province, and one – Gelechia basipunctella Herrich-Schäffer, 1854 – is new to Central European Russia, the rest are those in need of various clarifications. Occurence of Euxoa obelisca ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775) in the province, previously known only by early XXth century material, is confirmed. Excluded from the list are Notocelia rosaecolana (Doubleday, 1850) (the only specimen known was reidentified as N. trimaculana (Haworth, 1811)), Apamea lithoxylaea ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775) (the only specimen known was reidentified as A. sublustris (Esper, 1788)) and Mythimna unipuncta (Haworth, 1809) (the only specimen known was reidentified as M. ferrago (Fabricius, 1787)). Additionally, Hypochalcia proрinquella (Eversmann, 1842) is reported as new to Central European Russia, which was previously erroneously identified as Н. lignella (Hübner, 1796), the occurence of the latter in the province now requires confirmation. Furthermore, 1 new species is reported for Kaluga province and 3 species are confirmed as occuring there. Northernmost and northwesternmost records in European Russia are presented for Tischeria decidua Wocke, 1876, Crassa unitella (Hübner, 1796), Atralata albofascialis (Treitschke, 1829), Idaea rufaria (Hübner, [1799]), Dysauxes ancilla (Linnaeus, 1767), Caradrina albina Eversmann, 1848 and Fabula zollikoferi (Fryer, 1836).
