Notes on the autumn communities of Aphodiini (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) at the Middle Urals

SUMMARY. An autumn aspect for the study of dung beetles of the tribe Aphodiini in Perm City (the Middle Cis-Urals) is indicated, and a brief analysis of the autumn population of this group at the Middle Urals is presented. In September, on meadow grazing areas in Perm, 9 species are found, being associated with cow and horse droppings, of which 2 dominants are identified, constituting 97% of the total population. The latter are the following species: Aphodius fimetarius (Linnaeus, 1758) and Phaeaphodius rectus (Motschulsky, 1866). The 7 minor low number species are found there as well, i. e.: Acrossus depressus (Kugelann, 1792), Agoliinus piceus (Gyllenhal, 1808), Aphodius foetens (Fabricius, 1787), Colo-bopterus erraticus (Linnaeus, 1758), Eupleurus subterraneus (Linnaeus, 1758), Planolinus fasciatus (A.G. Olivier, 1789) and Teuchestes fossor (Linnaeus, 1758). The 4 species were first discovered in Perm: Agoliinus piceus, Aphodius foetens, Chilothorax sticticus (Panzer, 1798) and Phaeaphodius rectus. The 28 species of Aphodiini are totally num-bered for the Middle Urals (23 of them are besides attributed to autumn also), and the 2 species: Agoliinus piceus and Chilothorax sticticus are listed for the first time at the Middle Urals.

Beetles of the superfamily Histeroidea (Coleoptera: Sphaeritidae, Histeridae) of the Urals fauna. Part 1.

SUMMARY. A review on current state of investigation and the composition of coleopteran fauna of the superfamily Histeroidea for the Urals, including families Sphaeritidae and Histeridae (clown beetles), is presented and discussed. Detailed infor-mation about Histeroidea of the Urals Region, as well as for several adjacent territories of Eastern European Plane, Western Siberia, and Western Kazakhstan is given. The results of sphaeritid and clown beetles fauna research from XIX to the beginning of XXI centuries (up to 2019) are summarized. Reference and original data about distribution of these beetles over the Urals territory and their biology are provided, and the actual material is added. This 1st chapter of re-view presents organized information about Sphaerites glabratus (Fabricius, 1792) (Sphaeritidae) and representatives of 4 subfamilies of Histeridae, i. e. Abraeinae (7 species at the Urals), Dendrophilinae (6 species), Haeteriinae (2 species), Histerinae (34 species). Restored is the species status of Atholus nemkovi Kozminykh, 2003, stat. resurr. (from the synonym with A. bimaculatus (Linnaeus, 1758)). Dendrophilus punctatus (Herbst, 1791) is first registered for the Perm Area (Perm City), and Pachylister inaequalis (Olivier, 1789) is a new species, which is recorded at the South Transurals (the Kurgan Province) for the first time. The 1 Sphaeritidae species and 49 Histeridae species within the 4 subfamilies are registered for the Urals fauna. The 3 Histeridae species are listed for the Polar and Cis-Polar Urals (the Komi Republic). The 1 Sphaeritidae species and 19 species of Histeridae are noted for the Northern Urals, from which all 19 species are found in the Komi Republic, 1 Sphaeritidae species and 7 Histeridae species are known from northern territories of the Perm Area, 1 Sphaeritidae species and 3 species of Histeridae are reported from the Northern Sverd-lovsk Province. There are 1 Sphaeritidae and 27 Histeridae species registered for the Middle Urals, while 1 Sphaeritidae species and 25 Histeridae species are noted for the Perm Area, and 1 Sphaeritidae species and 22 Histeridae species are known for the Sverdlovsk Province. For the South Urals 1 Sphaeritidae species and 46 species of Histeridae are found, from which 1 Sphaeritidae species and 22 Histeridae species are listed for the Republic of Bashkortostan, 23 Histeridae species are noted for the Chelyabinsk Province, and 1 Sphaeritidae species and 44 species of Histeridae are known from the Orenburg Province.

Оn the fauna of Lepidoptera of the Udmurtia. Addition 4

SUMMARY. Additions to the Lepidoptera fauna of Udmurtia are presented, comprised of 7 species, 4 of which are new to the republic, including Eversmannia exornata (Eversmann, 1837) and Eupithecia gelidata Móschler, 1860 as new to Middle Cisuralia. The rest of the species are either confirmations of old records or those needed additional commentaries. Eupithecia nanata (Нübner, [1813]) is excluded from the species list of the republic, as it was a misidentification of E. gelidata.

Additions and corrections to the fauna of Lepidoptera of the Tula Province. 9

SUMMARY. Additions and corrections to the lists of Lepidoptera of Tula Province are given, comprising 30 species, 20 of which are listed for the province for the first time, incl. Acosmetia caliginosa (Hübner, [1813]) and Xylomoia strix Mikkola, 1980) – for the first time for Central European Russia. Presence of Nycteola siculana (Fuchs, 1899) in Russian fauna is confirmed. Acrobasis marmorea (Haworth, 1811) is removed from the province species list due to previous misidentification. Additionally, 3 species are recorded as new to Moscow Province, previously reported online. Northernmost or nort-westernmost records in European Russia are provided for Pempeliella ornatella ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775), Asalebria geminella (Eversmann, 1844), Isauria dilucidella (Duponchel, 1836), Titanio normalis (Hübner, 1796), Idia calvaria ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775), Apamea lithoxylaea ([Denis et Schiffermüller], 1775), Mythimna vitellina (Hubner, [1808]) and Agrotis bigramma (Esper, [1790]).
