Two new species of the genus Casignetella Strand, 1928 (Lepidoptera: Coleophoridae) from Crimea and Azov Sea region hatching from Chenopodiaceae.

SUMMARY. Casignetella kochiphaga, sp. n. and C. suaediphaga, sp. n. are described from Crimea and Azov Sea region. The larvae host plant of the first new species is Kochia prostrata (L.) Schrad., the larvae host plant of the second new species is Suaeda confusa Iljin. The type material is deposited in collection of Zoological Museum of Kiev Taras Shevchenko University (Kiev) (ZMKU), Karadagh scientific station (Crimea) (KSS), Zoological Institute of RAS (St.-Petersbourg) (ZIN).

A molecular investigation of Euphydryas alexandrina (Staudinger, 1887) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)

SUMMARY.A molecular investigation of Euphydryas alexandrina (Staudinger, 1887) have been processed. It is shown that in the group Euphydryas aurinia (Rottemburg, 1775) the minimal genetic distances within COI sequence for specific division are 1 % but only when the morphologic differences (especially in female genitalia) are good enough.

The new species of singing cigala (Homoptera: Cicadidae) on the fauna of Russia from the forest-steppe of Moscow Province.

SUMMARY. The new species of singing cigala Cicadetta cantilatrix Sueur & Puissant, 2007 earlier known from countries of Southern, Western and Central Europe was found in a forest-steppe part of Moscow Province. Reproduction behaviour in specimens of near-Moscow population is described and oscillograms of its sound signals are given. A population quantity data and short information of the biology of this species are given, a necessity of habitat protection for its conservation in the nature is discussed.

Contribution to the Tortricid fauna (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) of Leningrad Province

SUMMARY. 25 species of family Tortricidae are reported for Leningrad Province on the base of author’s collecting in 2011–2015. Among them 17 species are new for Leningrad Province, 15 species are recorded in North-West Russia for the first time. A record of Dichrorampha teichiana Šulcs & Kerpola, 1997 is a first-time record of this species in Russia. The occurrence of three species, known by old records in the region, is confirmed, besides, we report a few pairs of twin-species, which were not later separated in Leningrad Province faunal lists. 2 species are recorded as new for Pskov Province.

To the moths fauna (Lepidoptera) of the northern districts of Rostov-on- Don Province

SUMMARY. On the ground of the moths trapping in northern part of the Rostov-on-Don Province, carried out in 2010 – 2015, a list of 38 Heterocera species is generated; from them 23 species are noted for the territory of province for the first time; including three the first time submitted for the European part of Russia: Insalebria kozhantshikovi Filipjev, 1924, Bazaria turensis Ragonot, 1887 and Chrysocrambus cf. dentuellus (Pierce & Metcalfe. 1938). And others are very rare for the region.

Vertical distribution of the Noctuoid moths in the central part of Kirghiz mountain ridge (North Tian-Shan) (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea).

SUMMARY. The vertical distribution of the Noctuoid moths fauna in the central part of Kirghiz Mts. (North Tian-Shan) is discussed. This fauna includes 172 species: 134 in lowlands, 114 in middle mountain belt, 52 in high mountain zone and 9 in overhigh mountainous belt. The distribution of α-diversity alighnments of the Noctuoid moths of this region is linear, and increasing of species diversity in autochtonal and decreasing in allochtonal parts of this fauna when moved from one vertical zone to another (altitude should increase) is present. The similrity have only two vertical faunas: lowland and highland ones; all other vertical faunas within the central part of Kirghiz Mts. are not similar. For the better Noctuid moths fauna research it is recommended to use not only traditional light traps but also to collect moths at day time and to use the odor bait traps.
