the knowledge of systematics of ðalaearctic satyrids from the genus Coenonympha
Hübner,  (Lepidoptera: Satyridae).
SUMMARY. A review of
genera of Coenonymphinà, based
on male and female genitalia as well as molecular analysis of ÑÎI and Ef1α genes is given, with a brief overview of generic
structure of Palaearctic Coenonymphinà and an identification key. Treatment of Coenonympha
“extra lato” (sensu Kodandaramaiah, Wahlberg, 2009) is considered
unjustified, with outer position of morphologically distinct Triphysa
Zeller, 1850. Considering the paraphyly of Coenonympha + Lyela
cluster, generic status of Lyela Swinhoe, 1908 is preserved, with Coenonympha
Hübner,  (s.l.) split into 3 genera: Coenonympha (s.str.)
(monotypic, with type species Papilio geticus Esper, 1794), Disommata,
gen.n. (monotypic, with type species Coenonympha nolckeni
Erschoff, 1874) and Chortobius [Dunning et Pickard], 1858, stat.
rest. (all other species, with type species Papilio pamphilus
Linnaeus, 1758). It is supposed that the North American C. haydenii
(Edwards, 1872) and Chinese Sinonympha amoena Lee, 1974 may belong
to either nominate or their own subgenera of Coenonympha.
review of the subgenus Maculinea van Eecke, 1915 of the genus Phengaris
Doherty, 1891 (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) of the palaearctic fauna.
SUMMARY. In the present
message a review of blue butterflies of the subgenus Maculinea van
Eecke, 1915 of the genus Phengaris Doherty, 1891 of the fauna of
Palaearctic region is given. This subgenus includes 8 species. The data on
biology, distribution, variability and subspecific structure of each
species is presented. The lectotypes of Phengaris (Maculinea)

(M.) cyanecula sauron (Korb, 2003) are designated. A new
subspecies, Ph. (M.) cyanecula arven, ssp.n.,
with the type locality “China: Nan-Shan, eastern limit” is described. Ph.
(M.) teleius (Bergsträsser, 1779) for the first time
recorded from Tian Shan (Suusamyr valley). Taxa daisensis and hosonoi
syninymized with kazamoto by the type localities (all three taxa are
described from Honshu island): Phengaris (Maculinea) teleius
kazamoto (Druce, 1875) = Ph. (M.) t. daisensis

lacustris Ruzsky, 1905, Ph. (M.) alcon with M.
tenuispina Ruzsky, 1905 in Kirghiz Mts. (North Tian-Shan).

sp., Acrosathe annulata (Fabricius, 1805), larva and pupa of Dichoglena

SUMMARY. During the study
of collection material gathered from 1954 to 2011 on the territory of
Chuvash Republic 119 species of digger wasps from 3 families (Ampulicidae,
Sphecidae, Crabronidae) were identified, 16 of them are found in Chuvashia
for the first time. There was also found a range of rare species known from
Middle Volga region in single samples: Prionyx nudatus (Kohl, 1885),
Dryudella lineata Mocsáry, 1879, Gorytes procrustes

Apidae. Subfamilies Apinae (excluding Bombus Latr.) and Xylocopinae.
SUMMÀRY. Article contains generalized information on
world distribution and data on distribution in Moscow Province of 26
species of bees of family Apidae. Ceratina chalybea Chevrier, 1872

included. Intraspecific color variation of body pilosity for variable
species in Moscow Ðrovince
is noted. One example of using DNA barcoding for investigation of local
faunas is discussed.
