  • New and Little-Known Crickets of the subfamily Phalangopsinae (Orthoptera,
           Gryllidae). 8. The genus Paragryllodes and notes on the subfamily
           classification
    • Abstract: Abstract The systematic position of the Phalangopsinae species known from Africa and Madagascar as well as from the Comores, Seychelles, and some other adjacent islands is discussed. The genus Paragryllodes Karny is tentatively included in the subtribe Mexiaclina of the tribe Paragryllini, and the genera Phaeophilacris Walk., Phalangacris Bol., and Seychellesia Bol. to the subtribe Heterogryllina of the tribe Phalangopsini. Three new subgenera and four new species of the genus Paragryllodes are described: Optigryllus subgen. n., P. (Cortigryllus subgen. n.) andasibe sp. n., P. (C.) raineri sp. n., P. (Stridugryllus subgen. n.) andreji sp. n., and P. (P.) africanus sp. n. The former genus Montigryllus Sjöst. previously synonymized with the genus Paragryllodes is restored as a subgenus of this genus.

  • Ichneumon flies of the genus Metopius Panzer (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae,
           Metopiinae) of the Palaearctic fauna
    • Abstract: Abstract A key to 56 species of the genus Metopius Panzer known in the Palaearctic fauna is given. All the specimens are deposited in the collections of the Zoological Institute (the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg), the Institute of Zoology (the Ukrainian National Academy of Sciences, Kiev), and the Zoological Museum of Lomonosov Moscow State University. In addition to the diagnoses, the localities of these species in the countries of the CIS and adjacent territories are recorded. One new replacement name is proposed for Metopius clementi Tolkanitz, nom. n. (pro M. laticinctus Clément, 1930, non M. laticinctus Cresson, 1879). One species name is placed in synonyms: Metopius croceicornis Thomson, 1887 = M. vespulator Aubert, 1979, syn. n.

  • Different-scale distribution of Collembola in homogenous ground
           vegetation: Sphagnum moss
    • Abstract: Abstract Patterns of spatial distribution of Collembola were studied in sphagnum pine forests (Karelia, northwest of European Russia) in habitats of the same type using plots varying in area from 1 dm2 to 100 m2. The fractal design of counts with groups of samples taken from 5 cm to 10 m apart was used. The mosaic distribution and density of aggregations were assessed on different scales. Based on four model species, the patterns of spatial distribution were shown to be species-specific and constant in time and space. Two main types of species distribution (“continuous” and “spotty”) were distinguished. Such factors as relative humidity, mass of moss cover, and litter thickness only insignificantly affected the collembolan distribution within humid biotopes.

  • Invasion of the harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Coleoptera,
           Coccinellidae) into Southeastern Kazakhstan
    • Abstract: Abstract The harlequin ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Pallas, 1773) is one of the most famous invasive beetles in the world. A map of 105 findings of H. axyridis in Western Siberia, Kazakhstan, and northwestern China was compiled based on the examination of museum collections (about 1000 spec.) and analysis of the published data. Southeastern Kazakhstan is not a part of the native range of the species. The history of expansion of H. axyridis into southeastern Kazakhstan was reconstructed. At the end of the XIX century and in the first half of the XX century, the species was recorded in Kazakhstan Altai but not in other regions of Kazakhstan. In the early 1960s and 1976 it was found in more southern territories of the Ayaguz and Aksu River floodplains. Later on, H. axyridis was recorded further south, in Trans-Ili Alatau, and became a common species in the vicinity of Almaty. The coloration of adults and genetic data indicate that the harlequin ladybird has migrated to Trans-Ili Alatau from Kazakhstan Altai or Western Siberia. There is a vast Balkhash desert between the native range of the species and Trans-Ili Alatau, through which the beetles could not have migrated by themselves. Judging by the finding localities and dates, the invasion corridor was formed by the railroad.

  • Seasonal dynamics of butterfly (Lepidoptera, Rhopalocera) abundance in the
           Tropical Rain Forest of Vietnam
    • Abstract: Abstract Seasonal dynamics of butterfly diversity and abundance was studied in the tropical forest of the Tam Dao National Park, North Vietnam, from 2001 to 2005. The data were obtained from April to November along transects in different habitats from secondary forests to agricultural lands in the lowlands (200–400 m a.s.l.) and from the natural forest to agricultural land in the highlands (900–1000 m a.s.l.). The number of species and individuals had two peaks: the first, in May in lowlands and in June in highlands; the second, in October at both altitudes. There was a significant positive correlation between the fluctuations of the numbers of species and individuals. The peak abundance of particular species was recorded in May–June and in September–October. The flight season of the forest species was shorter than that of the species living in open habitats. The latter species tended to have more generations per year than the forest ones.

  • Reducing the number of protective treatments in an orchard as a
           prerequisite for agroecosystem restoration
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper presents the results of research of an apple orchard agroecosystem aimed at developing an environmental management program for the main phytophages. The potential of a monitoring technique using the cumulative curve is considered. As compared with the conventional monitoring of the codling moth male flight dynamics, the cumulative curve provides a more accurate assessment of pest abundance and can be used to determine the necessary protection measures.

  • Farm testing of non-insecticidal control of soybean and stevia pests in
           Krasnodar Territory
    • Abstract: Abstract A technology of non-insecticidal control of soybean and stevia pests was farm-tested for the first time in Krasnodar Territory. It effectively obviated the need for insecticide treatments in an unfavorable phytosanitary situation, whereas under favorable phytosanitary conditions, both insecticide treatments and means of active biological control could be cancelled. The soybean yield-capacity was 3.29–4.10 t/ha, which was 1.7–2.2 times the average yield-capacity for Krasnodar Territory in 2012–2014. The use of this technology in stevia plantations allowed the farmers to produce clean pharmacological raw materials with no deterioration of their quantity and quality while omitting the use of insecticides. Non-insecticidal control of soybean and stevia pests required only 0.023–0.526 of the usual costs of insecticidal protection and allowed the farmers: (a) to increase the profitability of production of organic foods and raw materials; (b) to improve the phytosanitary situation in agroecosystems and landscapes; (c) to create conditions for preservation, reproduction, accumulation and amplification of the beneficial activities of entomophages.

  • Protection of Turkmen “White Gold” under the white sun of the
           desert
    • Abstract: Abstract This article, dedicated to the memory of E.S. Sugonyaev, is based on publications of the developers of the integrated system of cotton pest control in Turkmenistan. Field studies of the cotton agroecosystem were conducted for 5–6 years beginning from 1971 in Murghab Oasis. It was found that no protective measures were required in the presence of 250–300 active zoophages per 100 cotton plants, and also that cotton sowing dates were of great significance for pest control.

  • Temporal dynamics of host-landing rate in mosquitoes attacking the
           imitation of a host
    • Abstract: Abstract The rates of mosquito landing on a host-imitating device were measured. The device contained an electric heater to imitate the presence of a warm-blooded animal, a gauze screen impregnated with meat juice, a microphone with an amplifier to record the sounds of mosquito landings and take-offs, and a light meter to record the ambient illumination. In addition, the behavior of mosquitoes near the device was studied by video recording. All the experiments were conducted in the first half of June in evening and morning hours in mixed spruce-birch forests of Moscow region. Audio recordings were digitally analyzed to estimate the landing rates. Significant (more than 50% of the average) quasi-periodic fluctuations of the mosquito landing rate were revealed. The peaks of mosquito activity alternated with drops with an average period of 30 min (20–50 min in different recording sessions). These fluctuations were recorded in calm weather during a gradual change in illumination. Experiments with two similar devices positioned 20 m apart showed that fluctuations of mosquito activity developed independently at each site. The fluctuations in the mosquito landing rate seem to be largely determined by endogenous factors: mosquito females, failing to obtain blood from the host-imitating device, lost interest in it and landed to rest on the nearby vegetation. After 20–50 min, the memory trace of the previous experience gradually faded, and mosquitoes returned to the attracting device thus starting the next peak of activity.
