Confirmation of a species status of Erebia lena Christoph, 1889, stat. resurr., and description of Erebia lena coccinepetrae, ssp. n., from Polar Ural (Lepidoptera: Satyridae).

SUMMARY. A species status of Erebia lena Christoph, 1889, stat. resurr. is confirmed. Its type locality is restricted to «58°8'12.228"N 114°20'31.488"E. Russia, Irkutsk Region, Bodaibo District, 33 km NNE of Bodaibo town, vicinity of Vasilyevsky settlement, Nakatami river valley». It differs from the closest relative species E. discoidalis (Kirby, 1837) from North America by a number of traits in the colouration and wing pattern, forewing shape, male genitalia structure and by its bioecology. This conclusion is supported by the data of molecular-genetic analysis. From Polar Ural Mountains Erebia lena coccinepetrae, ssp. n. is described (type locality: Russia, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Priuralsky District, 17 km NNW of Kharp settlement, 136 km of railway Seida – Labytnangi, Polar Ural Mts., Sob' river valley, 90–95 m). It differs from the nominotypical subspecies by the lesser size of the chestnut spot on the forewing and by the absence of the chestnut mark on the hindwing upperside.

Molecular-morphological comparison of the Middle Asiatic taxa of the genus Alpherakya Zhdanko, 1994 (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) as an example of the clinal variability within the first subunit of cytochrome oxidase (COI)

SUMMARY. Middle Asiatic taxa of the genus Alpherakya Zhdanko, 1994 represent the single polymorphic species. The oldest available name for this species is A. devanica (Moore, 1874). Molecular analysis supported division of this spe-cies into two subspecies: nominate (distributed within the mountains of Middle Asia and North Himalayas) and A. devanicasarta (Alphéraky, 1881) (distributed within semideserts and mountainous foothills and lowlands of South-East Kazakhstan and North-West China). The COI sequence of this species have the clinal variability. The clinal variability is al-so confirmed for the male genitalia (shape and size of the caudal branch of the valva, the size of the fold on the internal side of the valva). The female genitalia are useless for the identification within this group because they have high variability on the sclerotisation and shape of the postvaginal plate. The following new synonymy is presented: A. devanica (Moore, 1874) =devanica takoi (Churkin, 2006), syn.n.; =devanica sartoides (Swinhoe, 1910), syn.n.; =devanica bellona (Grum-Grshimailo, 1888), syn.n.. The new status is applied: A. devanica sarta (Alphéraky, 1881), stat.n.

A record of the true bug Drymus latus Douglas & Scott, 1871 (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae: Rhyparochrominae) for the eastern part of European Russia, and brief notes to distribution of four species of the subgenus Drymus Fieber, 1860

SUMMARY. The true bug species Drymus (Drymus) latus latus Douglas  Scott, 1871 (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae) is recorded for the East European part of Russia at the first time by a single discovery at Perm Province (Perm City) within the «Verkhnekurjinsky» Protected Nature Reserve territory, appearing in green pine cowberry forest.

SUMMARY. The information is summarized and current data on distribution of the flower chafer Oxythyrea funesta (Poda von Neuhaus, 1761) at the Middle Urals and adjacent territories of the East European part of Russia and Western Si-beria are aggregated.

To the fauna of Lepidoptera in the Republic of Mordovia. Addition 7.

SUMMARY. As a result for 2018 research, a list of 88 species of Lepidoptera from the Republic of Mordovia is pre-sented, 85 of which are new to the fauna of the Republic, incl. 9 (Swammerdamia pyrella (Villers, 1789), Agonopterix kuz-netzovi Lvovsky, 1983, Aristotelia ericinella (Zeller, 1839), Scrobipalpa ocellatella (Boyd, 1858), Caryocolum blandel-loides Karsholt, 1981, Syncopacma vinella (Bankes, 1898), Neofaculta ericetella (Geyer, 1832), Lobesia abscisana (Dou-bleday, 1849), Scoparia ancipitella (La Harpe, 1855)) are new to the fauna of the Middle Volga region. Occurrence several species previously known after old records by non-lepidopterists, is confirmed, the rest of the species included required fur-ther elucidation. Several records are qualified as: northernmost or northeneastermost for Gelechia sororculella (Hübner, [1817]), Mirificarma lentiginosella (Zeller, 1839), Gnorimoschema streliciella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1854), Brachmia inor-natella (Douglas, 1850), Sorhagenia janiszewskae Riedl, 1962, Jordanita subsolana (Staudinger, 1862), southernmost for Glyphipterix bergstraesserella (Fabricius, 1781), Depressaria libanotidella Schläger, 1849, Olethreutes subtilanus (Falkovitch, 1959), Phiaris dissolutana (Stange, 1866), Ancylis myrtillana (Treitschke, 1830), Rhopobota ustomaculana (Curtis, 1831), Lepteucosma huebneriana (Koçak, 1980), Scoparia ambigualis (Treitschke, 1829) and Catoptria permiaca W.

On the fauna of Lepidoptera of Lipetsk Province. Addition 6.

SUMMARY. Additions and corrections to the list of Lepidoptera of Lipetsk Province are presented. The list is comprised of 63 species new to the province, incl. 35 new to Central Chernozem'e region, 4 (Parornix finitimella (Zeller, 1850), Tinagma balteolellum (Fischer von Röslerstamm, [1841]), Eteobalea serratella (Treitschke, 1833), Mythimna vitellina (Hübner, [1808])) are new to Central European Russia, Monopis fenestratella (Heyden, 1863) is new to European Russia, and Tiliacea aurago ([Denis et Schifermüller], 1775)) is new to Russia. Additionally, it contains 20 species which are new to the “Galiсhya Gora” Nature Reserve, as well as new data for 7 species are given, incl. Dysstroma truncata (Hufnagel, 1767), which was previously reported questionably. Tinea translucens Meyrick, 1917 is deleted from the regional list, due to misidentification (specimen belongs to Tineola bisseliella (Hummel, 1823)). As a result of ex ova rearing of Catocala cf. deducta Eversmann, 1843, 5 moths were produced, corresponding to C. elocata (Esper, 1787), which further contributes to synonymization of C. deducta and C. elocata. Several records are qualified as: northernmost for Nemapogon inconditella (D. Lucas, 1956), Altenia scriptella (Hübner, 1796), Cochylis ерilinana Duponchel, 1842, Melitaea trivia ([Denis et Schifermüller], 1775), northeasternmost for Epiblema obscuranа (Herrich-Schäffer, 1851), southernmost for Argyroploce lediana (Linnaeus, 1758), Jodis putata (Linnaeus, 1758), Hypena crassalis (Fabricius, 1787) and Lycophotia porphyrea ([Denis et Schifermüller], 1775).
