new species of the genus Lethrus Scopoli, 1777 (subgenus Scelolethrus
Semenov, 1892) from Iran (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Geotrupinae).
SUMMARY. Lethrus (Scelolethrus)
percutens, sp. n. described from
North Iran (Golestan prov.) is most similar to Lethrus sulcatus
Kraatz, 1883 distributed in Turkmenistan
(northern Kopet-Dagh slopes in Ashgabat
environs), but differs by many male characters; the most important
differences are: shape of mandible ventral processes, ventral construction
of head capsule, armature of anterior and posterior femora, structures of
internal sack of aedeagus, as well as sculpture
of dorsal body-side.

Lemonia strigata Rougeot et Viette, 1978, stat. n. and L. ballioni (Christoph,
1888) (Lepidoptera: Lemoniidae) in a fauna of
Europe with taxonomic notes on related species and description of a new
SUMMARY. A taxonomy of taraxaci and ballioni
species groups is considered. The taxa taraxaci
strigata and ballioni
ponticus, both formerly of subspecific rank, are raised here to full specific
status (Lemonia strigata
Rougeot et Viette,
1978, stat. n. and Lemonia ponticus Aurivillius,
1894, stat. n.) because of appearance and genitalic
features. Originally, the name Lemonia taraxaci ab. ♀ strigata
Rebel, 1910, is infrasubspecific and as the name
of specific level should perhaps attributed to [Rougeot,
Viette, 1978], who made it available and used it
to designate a subspecies L. taraxaci strigata. A new subspecies, Lemonia
ssp. n. (locus typicus: Griechenland, vic. Igoumenitsa,
Phasconula) is described. Range limits and zone
of sympatry between taraxaci and strigata are shortly discussed. Two taxa — Lemonia ponticus
Aurivillius, 1894 and L. beirutica
Daniel, 1965 — are closed together based on external and genitalic features. Most probably, they are conspecific
and should be considered subspecies of the same species and all differences
between both can be explained by geographic range. The lectotypes
of Crateronyx ballioni
Christoph, 1888, from Zoological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences
(St. Petersburg), and of Lemonia taraxaci terranea
Rothschild, 1909 from The Natural History Museum (London, Great Britain),
are here designated.

notes upon the genus Euphydryas Scudder,
1872 (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae).
SUMMARY. Lectotypes are designated for 5 nominal species-group
taxa in the genus Euphydryas Scudder.
1872: E. aurinia sareptana
(Staudinger, 1871), E. aurinia pellucida (Christoph, 1893), E. aurinia laeta (Christoph,
1893), E. sibirica (Staudinger, 1861) and E.
1845). Species rank of E. orientalis
(range: Turkey: Central Anatolia) and E. laeta
(mountain regions in the south of Western and Central Siberia, South-West Jakutia and high-montane Byryatia)
and E. sibirica (lower montane Buryatia
and Chita province) is confirmed. After study of the designated lectotypes, as well as other collection material, the
following synonymy is established: E. aurinia aurinia (Rottemburg,
1775) = E. a. balcanica Schawerda, 1908; E. laeta laeta (Christoph, 1893), stat. rev. = Å. banghaasi (Seitz, 1908), syn.n.,
= Å. aurinia altivolans Tuzov, 2000. Subspecific rank
of E. a. sareptana and E. a. pellucida is confirmed.
Staphylinid beetles of the subfamily Oxytelinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) of the Moscow Province.
SUMMARY. An annotated
checklist of 67 species of the staphylinid
beetles of subfamily Oxytelinae of the fauna of
the Moscow Province is given. Two Aleocharinae
and one Steninae species are recorded as new for
the Moscow Province.

the fauna of Microlepidoptera (Lepidoptera) of
Penza Province (addition 3).
SUMMARY. The preliminary
list of Microlepidoptera of Penza Province
collected up to 2010 is given. It includes 133 species (from 27 families),
126 of which are cited for the first time for the province, incl. Monopis crocicapitella
(Clemens, 1859), Agonopterix cnicella (Treitschke, 1832), Scrobipalpa
1843), Phtheochroa krulikovskii
(Obraztsov, 1944), Thiodia
sulphurana (Christoph, 1888), Cydia pactolana
(Zeller, 1840) — for the first time for the Middle Volga region, also Depressaria artemisiae
Nickerl, 1864, Neofaculta
1854) and Acleris comariana
(Lienig et Zeller, 1846) — for the first time for
the Volga basin. Occurence of Ñelypha capreolana (Herrich-Schäffer,
1851) and Eudonia mercurella
(Linnaeus, 1758) in Middle Volga region is confirmed. A new synonymy is establised: Gypsonoma
(Lienig et Zeller, 1846) = G. n. arcadia Lastukhin, 2001, syn.n.

corrections to the lists of Lepidoptera of Tula Province are given, which
contain 22 species, 20 of which are listed for the Province for the first
time, incl. 4 species (Cauchas rufifrontella (Treitschke, 1833), Neofaculta infernella
(Herrich-Schäffer, 1854), Lobesiodes euphorbiana
(Freyer, 1842), Epischnia
)) — for the first time for the Central European Russia.

of 39 species is given. One species — Doloploca
1877) (Tortricidae) is new for Europe, 12 species
— Ypsolopha sarmaticella
