Contribution to knowledge of the Carabus (Morphocarabus) odoratus Motschulsky, 1844 species complex from Siberian (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Carabini)

Summary. On the basis of long-term collections which were carried out in Siberia and Yakutia the status Carabus (Morphocarabus) viridilimbatus Motschulsky, 1845, stat. n. was raised. The decision was made on the basis of aedeagus structure and a simpatry with Carabus (Morphocarabus) odoratus Motschulsky, 1844. The three subspecies Carabus (Morphocarabus) viridilimbatus panini, ssp. n., Carabus (Morphocarabus) viridilimbatus saluki, ssp. n., Carabus (Morphocarabus) odoratus kurmaevi, ssp. n. are described.

On the status and the systematic position of Paralasa nero (Staudinger, 1894), Paralasa hades (Staudinger, 1882) and closely related taxa (Lepidoptera: Satyridae)

Summary. The status and systematic position of the taxa of the Paralasa hades group is discussed. The information about lectotypes of P. hades (Staudinger, 1882) and P. nero (Staudinger, 1894) is given, these specimens and their labels are figured; the mistakes made by S.V. Churkin and V.K. Tuzov in their revision are corrected. The data about the male genitalia variability within this group are submitted. Both taxa are conspecific and a new status for P. hades nero (Staudinger, 1894), stat.n. is proposed. The following synonymy is established: Paralasa hades hades (Staudinger, 1882) = P. hades erebus (Groum-Grshimailo, 1890), syn.n., = P. hades yaktchashma Churkin et Tuzov, 1998, syn.n., = P. ali Churkin et Tuzov, 1998, syn.n. The division of P. hades into three subspecies is proposed: namenstypical (distribution: central parts of Transalai and Alai Mts., Darvaz, West Pamir), P. hades maida Churkin et Tuzov, 1998 (distribution: Gissar) and P. hades nero (Staudinger, 1894) (distribution: eastern part of Transalai Mts.).

Butterflies of Central Tian-Shan (Lepidoptera: Papilionoformes).

Summary. As a result of consolidation of data on lower moths of Udmurtia Republic, an annotated list of Alucitidae, Pterophoridae and Pyraloidea is presented. Study of published data as well as recent materials (collected from 1987 to 2013) has revealed 153 species, 25 of which are only known after Krulikowsky’s publications and are included provisionally, assessing correctness of that author’s identification and their overall zonal distribution; 34 species are new to Udmurtia and Middle Cisuralia, including 20 being new to “Southern European taiga region” of the “Catalogue of the Lepidoptera of Russia” [2008]. 10 unnumbered species are included, which were reported from the republic in earlier literature, but cannot be accepted without collection material. Excluded from the fauna of Udmurtia, Central Cisuralia, Volgo-Vyatka region and Center of European Russia are Mecyna trinalis ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775), as recently material belongs to other species. Excluded from the fauna of Udmurtia, Central Cisuralia and Volgo-Vyatka region are Ematheudes varicella Ragonot, 1887, as recent material belongs to other species).
