To the systematics and nomenclature of palaearctic Satyridae (Lepidoptera)

SUMMARY. The lectotypes of Satyrus hyppolite drriesi Bang-Haas, 1933, S. h. richthofeni Bang-Haas, 1933, Satyrus mamurra schakuhensis Staudinger, 1881, Oeneis elwesi tannuola Bang-Haas, 1927, Oeneis sculda pumila Staudinger, 1892, Satyrus boloricaus Grum-Grshimailo, 1888, Satyrus leechi Groum-Grshimailo, 1890, Coenonympha amaryllis accrescens Staudinger, 1901 are designated. The following synonymy is established: Pseudochazara hippolyte richthofeni (Bang-Haas, 1933) = P. h. gigantea (Bang-Haas, 1933), syn.n., Chortobius amaryllis accrescens (Staudinger, 1901) = C. a. borisovi (Korshunov et Ivonin, 1996), syn.n.

Molecular investigation of Lymantria storozhenkoae Korb et Pozhogin, 2012 (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae)

SUMMARY. Recently described Lymantria storozhenkoae Korb et Pozhogin, 2012 has been molecularly investigated. The COI gene was sequenced and compared to the closely located L. dispar populations. Differences on 415bp fragment of COI for L. dispar dispar (Linnaeus, 1758) are about 2,1 2,3%, for L. dispar asiatica Wnukowsky, 1926 are about 1,75%.

Interesting discoveries of carpet beetles (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) in the Russia

SUMMARY. As a result of the collecting in 20022014 in the south part of European Russia and in the North Caucasus 6 species of the carpet beetles (Dermestidae) were found, which was firstly recorded for the Russian territory or was recently listed without specific information: Dermestes intermedius Kalik, 1951, Attagenus fasciolatus (Solsky, 1876), Anthrenus amoenulus Reitter, 1896, Anthrenus zebra Reitter, 1889, Anthrenus latefasciatus Reitter, 1892 and Anthrenus olgae Kalik, 1946.

Contributions to the fauna of bees (Hymenoptera: Apoidea) of Moscow Province. 5. Family Halictidae. Genera Lasioglossum Curtis, 1833 and Evylaeus Robertson, 1902.

SUMMARY. An annotated list of subtribe Gastrohalictina (=Lasioglossum s. l.) of the Moscow Province is presented. It consists of 38 species: 9 Lasioglossum Curtis, 1833 and 29 Evylaeus Robertson, 1902. L. laevigatum (Kirby, 1802), L. sexmaculatum (Schenck, 1853), E. crassepunctatus (Bluthgen, 1923), E. linearis (Schenck, 1868) and E. politus (Schenck, 1853) are recorded from this area for the first time. L. majus (Nylander, 1852), E. malachurus (Kirby, 1802) and E. smeathmanellus (Kirby, 1802) are known only by old doubtful literature records and excluded from the regional fauna as based on absence of old or new collecting materials and information on species distribution ranges. The localities, the data of collecting, the quantity of collected specimens, original information on ecology (visited plants and stations, flight period) in Moscow Province as far as the world distribution are given for all 38 species. COI gene sequences of E. fratellus (Perez, 1903) and E. leucopus (Kirby, 1802) from Moscow Province are published. The intraspecific genetic variation for these species in Europe as well as L. leucozonium Schrank, 1781 and L. zonulum Smith, 1848 in Europe and America in comparison to Moscow Province material is discussed. Only E. fratellus show the great intraspecific variety. Some morphology variations are noted. Red metasoma colour forms in Moscow Province are presented only in E. albipes (Fabricius, 1781) and E. calceatus (Scopoli, 1763). Bilateral ginandromorf of L. leucozonium from Moscow Province is illustrated.
