Molecular investigation of the little known species Polyommatus samusi Korb, 2017 with notes on the phylogeny of the group P. iphigenides (Staudinger, 1886) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)

SUMMARY. The molecular investigation (COI sequence) of the recently described little known blue butterfly species Polyommatus samusiKorb, 2017 is conducted. Its species status is shown. It is found, that in the group P. iphigenides (Staudinger, 1886) the COI-distances between the species are dramatically less than in other groups of the subgenus Agrodiaetus Hübner, [1822].

About the eastern limit for distribution of the european aquatic bug Velia (Plesiovelia) saulii Tamanini, 1947 (Heteroptera: Veliidae)

SUMMARY. The European species of aquatic bug Velia (Plesiovelia) saulii Tamanini, 1947 (Veliidae) is found out in the Perm Province (Perm City, Iva river). The record is the easternmost of all known, and it expands the distribution area of this species significantly. Brief data, summarizing the presence of two other species of the family Veliidae at the Urals, i. e Microvelia buenoi Drake, 1920 and M. reticulata (Burmeister, 1835), are presented.

True bugs (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae) of the Middle Urals (with resulting data to the total Urals fauna)

SUMMARY. Data to a current state composition on the true bugs fauna of the family Lygaeidae for the Middle Urals are summarized and analyzed for the first time, and brief results of seed bugs investigation at the whole Urals are given. The 61 species from 33 genera and 9 subfamilies, namely Rhyparochrominae (42 species), Orsillinae (5 species), Geocorinae (4 spe-cies), Cyminae and Oxycareninae (each by 3 species), Lygaeinae, Ischnorhynchinae, Blissinae and Heterogastrinae (each by single species) are registered for the Middle Urals. There are 53 species known from the Perm Area, and 37 species are noted for the Sverdlovsk Province. The 38 lygaeid species are found in Perm City, and 16 species are regis-tered for Ekaterinburg City. European Ischnocoris hemipterus (Schilling, 1829) (Rhyparochrominae) is discovered first at the Middle Cis-Urals (Perm, the Nature Protected Territory «Verkhnekur’inskii»). The 5 seed bug species from 2 subfamilies (Geocorinae and Rhyparochrominae) are noted for the Polar and Cis-Polar Urals (the Komi Republic). The 25 lygaeid species from 6 subfamilies (17 Rhyparochrominae, 3 Orsillinae, 2 Cyminae, by single species for Geocori-nae, Ischnorhynchinae and Oxycareninae) are registered for the Northern Urals, while 24 species from these are found in the Komi Republic, 1 species is known from the Perm Area, and 12 species are noted for the northern territories of Sverdlovsk Province (11 species from the Nature Reserve «Denezhkin Kamen’»). For the South Urals the 120 species of Lygaeidae within 12 subfamilies are found out, from which Rhyparochrominae (70 species) dominates. The 57 spe-cies of Lygaeidae are known from the Republic of Bashkortostan, 26 species are found in the Chelyabinsk Province, and 107 species are known for the Orenburg Province.

Inventory on alien silken-fungus beetles (Coleoptera: Cryptophagidae) of European Russia

SUMMARY. Information is provided on 18 species of silken-fungus beetles (Cryptophagidae) that have spread into the European part of Russia, probably due to human activity. For each species the following information is provided: a brief morphology description, biology, economic impact, methods of detection and identification, possible vectors of invasion, native range, current range, first record in European Russia, recent distribution in European Russia, history of invasion. The diagnostic characters of the species are given and the literature for determination is listed. The introduction of silken-fungus beetles into new regions depends on a widespread ecological specialization among them, nidicolia (dwelling in nests). Nidicols have an increased chance of becoming synanthropic species (i.e. associated with humans). Usually, silken-fungus beetles do not damage human food products, but they feed on mold which develops in the process of the decay of stored products. Synanthropic species gain new opportunities for geographic spread and increased abundance. One can distinguish several waves of acquisition of sinathropy in Cryptophagidae: some species have been accompanying humans for hundreds of years, others have only recently begun the formation of synathropy and geographic expansion.

Materials on a fauna of leaf-mining moths of the university campus of Penza (Lepidoptera: Nepticulidae, Tischeriidae, Bucculatricidae, Gracillariidae, Lyonetiidae).

SUMMARY. 20 species of leaf-miner moths from 5 families are listed here for the city of Penza and Penza Province for the first time. Stigmella confusella (Wood & Walsingham, 1894) is recorded for the Volga Region for the first time. Flies Agromyza alnobetulae Hendel, 1931 and Aulagromyza tremulae (Hering, 1955) are also recorded for the first time. The strong damage of Aesculus hippocastanum L. with invasive species Cameraria ohridella Deschka & Dimić, 1986 is firstly noted for the whole province.
