3I.N. Toskina
Key to Mediterranean borer-beetles of the genus Lasioderma Stephens, 1835 (Coleoptera: Ptinidae: Xyletininae).

SUMMARY. A key is composed to 57 species and 1 subspecies of the genus Lasioderma (Coleoptera: Ptinidae: Xyletininae) distributed in the Mediterranean region. It is proved that Lasioderma bubalus phelipaearum Peyerimhoff, 1926 is Lasioderma phelipaearum Peyerimhoff, 1926, stat. n. The question of transfer of Lasioderma rhodiacum Toskina, 2013 to another genus Pseudolasioderma Logvinovskij, 1978 is considered.

New data to the systematics and distribution of butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoformes) of the Middle Asia. Communication 2.

SUMMARY. New data to the systematics and distribution of the Middle Asiatic butterflies are presented: descriptions of 3 new subspecies (Koramius infernalis gundorovi, ssp. n. from Kara-Keche coil mine environs in Moldo-Too Mts. (northern slope), K. patricius beliki, ssp. n. from Dolon Pass in Baidulu Mts. and Hyponephele lycaon packaleni, ssp. n. from Suusamyr-Too Mts., Kekemeren river valley), confirmation of synonymy for 3 Athamanthia taxa (dilutior, churkini and zhdankoi), first record of Pieris krueperi devta (de Nicéville, [1884]) from Suusamyr-Too Mts. and new data about distribution of Alpherakya sartus (Alphéraky, 1881).
29S.K. Korb
New data to the systematics and nomenclature of satyrid genus Karanasa Moore, 1893 (Lepidoptera: Satyridae).

SUMMARY. Lectotypes of the following taxa are designated: Satyrus regeli var. kasakhstana O.Bang-Haas, 1936, Satyrus huebneri var. talastauana O.Bang-Haas, 1927, Satyrus pamirus Staudinger, 1887, Satyrus josephi Staudinger, 1882, Satyrus huebneri var. decolorata Staudinger, 1901, Satyrus huebneri var. dissoluta Staudinger, 1886. The status of taxon Satyrus regeli var. kasakhstana O.Bang-Haas, 1936, is established as subspecies of K. abramovi (Erschoff, 1874): K. abramovi kasakstana (O.Bang-Haas, 1936), stat. rev. It is shown that the valid lectotype designation of K. regeli (Alphéraky, 1881) was made by P.V.Bogdanov in 2011 but not by S.K.Korb in 2012. A new species, Karanasa inopinata Korb, sp. n., from Kirghiz Mts. is described. The status of taxon Satyrus huebneri var. dissoluta Staudinger, 1886 is considered to be a good species: Karanasa dissoluta (Staudinger, 1886), stat. n.
