  • Ixodid ticks (Parasitiformes: Ixodidae) from small mammals in reforesting
           boreal habitats of the northern European Russia
    • Abstract: Abstract Abundance of 2 ixodid tick species, Ixodes (Exopalpiger) trianguliceps Birula, 1895 and Ixodes (Ixodes) persulcatus Schulze, 1930 was studied during 6 years, in 1998–2001 and 2003–2004, at a research station in Gomselga Village (central Karelia, Kondopoga District, 62°04′N, 33°55′E). New data on host species composition and ixodid tick abundance were obtained from 4 forest plots at different stages of reforestation (secondary succession) following felling that occurred 7–14, 12–19, 25–32, and 80–87 years ago. Individuals of I. persulcatus predominated and constituted 73% of the total ticks collected. The occurrence rates of different developmental stages were shown to fluctuate in the course of reforestation both in I. trianguliceps (larvae, 2.8–5.3; nymphs, 1.5–2.2; adults, 0–0.09) and in I. persulcatus (larvae, 4.3–10.6; nymphs, 0.6–4.2).

  • Attraction of Encyrtid wasps (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea: Encyrtidae) to a
           peach orchard agrocenosis in the Republic of Moldova
    • Abstract: Abstract A total of 26 species from 19 genera of Encyrtidae were recorded in peach orchards in the environs of Chisinau, Moldova. The species affecting the numbers of such peach pests as the Oriental fruit moth Grapholita molesta Busck, the peach twig borer Anarsia lineatella Z., the San Jose scale Diaspidiotus perniciosus Comst., and the gooseberry scale Eulecanium coryli L., are listed. The encyrtid parasites of the potential peach pests in Moldova, and also the hyperparasites and parasites of beneficial predatory insects, are considered. Proteincarbohydrate mixture (PCM) and methyl salicylate (MeSA) were most effective for attraction of encyrtid wasps in April and the first half of May, providing 7.0- and 3.2-fold increase in the parasite numbers as compared with the control. In the second decade of May and in June, the increase was 3.6 times on PCM, 1.8 times on MeSA, and 2.6 times on nectariferous plants. From the end of June the efficiency of PCM and MeSA only slightly exceeded the control level while nectariferous plants were most effective, yielding a more than twofold increase in the numbers of encyrtids.

  • Description of the stridulatory apparatus of the Far Eastern bark beetles
           Polygraphus proximus Blandford, 1894 and P. jezoensis Niisima, 1909
           (Coleoptera, Curculionidae: Scolytinae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The stridulatory organ structure in two Far Eastern bark beetles, Polygraphus proximus and P. jezoensis, is described. The elytro-tergal type of the stridulatory apparatus is found in P. jezoensis. The structure involved in acoustic communication of P. jezoensis is present only in males. The plectrum of P. proximus males is re-described. Similarly to that in P. jezoensis, it is formed by two tubercles at the distal margin of tergite VII. An additional type of stridulatory organ used for the producing of precopulatory courtship signals is described for males of P. proximus. In this type of stridulatory organ, transverse ridges on the costal margin of the elytron act as pars stridens, and the hind tibia, as the plectrum.

  • Effects of thermoperiods on the reproductive activity of females and on
           the maternal induction of larval diapause in the blowfly, Calliphora
           vicina R.-D. (Diptera, Calliphoridae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The interaction of thermoperiod and photoperiod in their influence on the reproductive maturation of females and on the induction of the maternal effect determining larval diapause of the progeny of the blowfly, Calliphora vicina, was first investigated under laboratory conditions. Under the combination of a day length of 12 h with a thermoperiod (the alternation of 12 h long periods with temperatures of 10 and 20°C) the reproductive maturation of females was faster than at the corresponding mean constant temperature of 15°C. Under the “natural” thermoperiod, when the period with a temperature of 10°C coincided with “night-time” (the dark phase of the diurnal light-dark cycle) the maturation of females was slower than that under the “inverted” thermoperiod, when the period with a temperature of 10°C coincided with “day-time” (the light phase of the diurnal light-dark cycle). The proportion of diapausing individuals was maximal in the progeny of females kept at 20°C and decreased with the increase in temperature. Under thermoperiods (the alternations of 12 h long periods with temperatures of 20 and 26°C) the proportion of diapausing progeny was lower than that under the corresponding mean constant temperature of 23°C, but under the inverted thermoperiod with a high night temperature this effect was much stronger. In combination with the results of our previous studies, these data support the hypothesis that the effects of “night” and “day” temperatures are substantially different only when the thermal response interacts with a strong photoperiodic response.

  • The possibility of computer analysis of the twilight soundscape of the
           orthopteran (Tettigoniidae, Gryllidae) community, by the example of an
           agrocenosis in Eastern Bulgaria
    • Abstract: Abstract Computer analysis of the twilight soundscape with the sounds of grasshoppers (Tettigoniidae) and crickets (Gryllidae) recorded in an agrocenosis of Eastern Bulgaria was performed. Seven species were identified by the dynamic spectrograms. It is shown that analysis of the group stridulation spectrograms of Ensifera can be useful not only for solving ecological and faunistic problems but also for studying the acoustic interactions of conspecific and heterospecific individuals in the same biotope.

  • On an introduced weevil Polydrusus formosus (Mayer) (Coleoptera,
           Curculionidae: Entiminae) in the Summer Garden, St. Petersburg
    • Abstract: Abstract In the summer of 2015, Polydrusus formosus was found in the Summer Garden, St. Petersburg on Tilia cordata in the trellises and berceau restored in 2011. This weevil was known in the European part of the former USSR only in Moldova and Crimea. The finding of 6 individuals of Polydrusus formosus only on the linden trellises may be due to an unintended introduction of the weevils (probably only a single fertilized female) with the plants from Germany and maintenance of the population in the Summer Garden for already five years.

  • Interaction of ants with aphid enemies: Do inexperienced ants specializing
           
    • Abstract: Abstract Honeydew collectors of Formica pratensis taken from the nature (control) and laboratory-reared “naïve” ants, which had never met either “mature” workers or aphids and aphidophages, were observed during their interactions with various aphid enemies: adults and larvae of ladybirds and lacewings, and larvae of syrphid flies. The naïve ants were significantly more aggressive towards adults than towards larvae of aphidophages. More than 70% of the naïve ants treated ladybirds and lacewings as enemies at their first encounter and attacked them immediately without any prior antennation. The frequency of aggressive reactions (body jerking and bites) towards larvae was significantly higher in the control group, whereas the percentage of ants showing explorative behavior was significantly higher in the naïve ants. Overall, experience proved to be not important for displaying the key behavioral reactions towards adult ladybirds and lacewings underlying the protection of trophobionts from these natural enemies. However, accumulation of experience is assumed to play an important role in the recognition of aphidophage larvae and formation of aggressive behavior towards them.

  • Parasitological factors impeding transmission of the babesiosis pathogen
           Babesia microti from the tick Ixodes persulcatus to humans
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on analysis of original and literature data, it is concluded that effective transmission of B. microti by the tick I. persulcatus is prevented by the following main permanent eco-parasitological factors: lack of pronounced anthropophily in the tick nymphs; low rates of spontaneous invasion of unfed adults; a short duration of the parasitic phase on humans which is not sufficient for completion of sporogony. Therefore, in spite of the possibility of sporadic cases of babesiosis, it can be stated that B. microti infection does not and will not play a significant role in infectious pathology within the vast territory where the taiga tick is the only potential source of this infection.

  • The toxic effect of greenhouse insecticides on the predatory bugs
           Nesidiocoris tenuis Reuter and Macrolophus pygmaeus H.-S. (Heteroptera,
           Miridae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The study reports the results of toxicity tests for several insecticides which are allowed to be used on greenhouse plants (Admiral, Mospilan, Spintor, and BT), as applied to different developmental stages of the predatory bugs Nesidiocoris tenuis Reuter and Macrolophus pygmaeus H.-S. (family Miridae), which feed on whiteflies, aphids, thrips, and spider mites. The juvenoid Admiral is found to be the least toxic to these species, whereas the spinosyn Spintor is most toxic. The neonicotinoid Mospilan and a microbiological insecticide BT are intermediate in their effects. The timing of application of insecticides most favorable to the predatory mirids when both pest management methods are used together is discussed.

  • Directional and frequency characteristics of auditory receptors in midges
           (Diptera, Chironomidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Individual characteristic frequencies and directional sensitivity of the Johnston’s organ auditory receptors were measured in the midges Chironomus plumosus L. using the method of positive feedback stimulation: responses of receptors recorded with a glass microelectrode from their axons in the antennal nerve were amplified and fed to the stimulating speaker. With the amplitude and the stimulating signal phase properly adjusted, the whole feedback loop fell into auto-excitation with the frequency of oscillations close to the characteristic frequency of the receptor. Three separate groups of receptors were found with mean frequencies of 180, 221, and 264 Hz. These groups differ in their directional properties: the low-frequency receptors are mostly sensitive dorsoventrally, while the directional maxima of mid- and high-frequency ones are combined to provide equal sensitivity in the plane perpendicular to the flagellum. Our data suggest that in Chironomidae a single Johnston’s organ together with the antenna can provide spatial localization of conspecific sounds and also perform the initial stages of frequency analysis.

  • Antlions and owlflies (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae, Ascalaphidae) of
           Kyrgyzstan
    • Abstract: Abstract The myrmeoleontoid Neuroptera fauna of Kyrgyzstan comprises 34 species-group taxa, among which 23 are recorded from the republic for the first time. Epacanthaclisis alaica Krivokhatsky, 1998 is known only from the holotype collected in the Alai Mt. Range; Kirghizoleon cubitalis Krivokhatsky et Zakharenko, 1994 is known from Kyrgyzstan and from the Hissar Mt. country in Tajikistan; and Mesonemurus vartianorum Hölzel, 1972 is distributed from the Tien Shan to Afghanistan. 26 species are common in Kyrgyzstan and are fairly evenly distributed over its territory. New synonymies are established: Macronemurus persicus (Navás, 1915) = Barreja persica Navás, 1915, = Barreja amoena Hölzel, 1972, syn. n.; Myrmecaelurus acerbus (Walker) = Myrmeleon acerbus Walker, 1853; = Myrmecaelurus varians Navás, 1913, syn. n.; = Myrmecaelurus aequans Navás, 1913, syn. n.; = Myrmecaelurus nematicus Navás, 1932, syn. n. The polymorphous structure of the widely variable Macronemurus persicus is shown, and three its color morphs are distinguished: Macronemurus persicus var. persica (Navás, 1915), var. graciosa var. n., and var. amoena (Hölzel, 1972). Data on the antlion and owlfly fauna of some other Palaearctic countries are supplemented.

  • Musculature of the ovipositor of Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758)
           (Diptera, Tephritidae) and its relation to the larval habits
    • Abstract: Abstract The structure of the ovipositor sclerites and muscles was studied in the tephritid fly Oxyna parietina (Linnaeus, 1758) inducing galls on the stems of Artemisia vulgaris. Adaptations of the ovipositor structure associated with changes of the oviposition substrate due to new larval habits are analyzed. The ovipositor muscles of Oxyna parietina are compared to those of Campiglossa. The genera Oxyna Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830 and Campiglossa Rondani, 1870 belong to the same genus-group of Tephritini, but differ in their host associations and oviposition habits: the larvae of Campiglossa plantaginis (Haliday, 1833) develop in the capitula of Aster tripolium and other asters (Asteraceae). The ovipositor sclerites and muscles are similar in the two genera. Progression of hemolymph into the membranous sheath of the ovipositor and protraction of the aculeus are necessary conditions for laying eggs into the capitula of Asteraceae (Campiglossa plantaginis), as well as for insertion of eggs into the axils of Artemisia leaves (Oxyna parietina). The most significant characters of Oxyna and Campiglossa include the presence of the hyaline apodeme and associated muscles MVM 6 and MVM 7 (instead of the median apodeme in Urophora). Thus, in other tephritid flies similarity in the structure of the ovipositor muscles may reflect similar morphofunctional adaptations to laying eggs into similar substrates, but similarity of Campiglossa and Oxyna in the structure of the ovipositor muscles is due to their close relations.
