  • Zoogeographic analysis of the fauna of the family Asilidae (Diptera) of
           the Lower Volga area
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on the author’s own and the literature data, the zoogeographic analysis of robber flies (Asilidae) of the Lower Volga area was carried out for the first time. A total of 21 range types were distinguished and the fractions of different chorological groups in the fauna were determined. The zoogeographic structure of faunal complexes of robber flies inhabiting biotopes with different plant associations was studied.

  • On recognition of sound communication signals in bush crickets
           (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Two hypotheses have been proposed to explain the mechanisms of calling signal recognition in orthopterans: the filtration and resonance ones. To test these hypotheses, conspecific male calling songs and their models with modified temporal parameters were presented to females of bush crickets in ethological experiments. The models with a double pulse rate evoked positive phonotaxis of females while phase shift significantly complicated the recognition process. These data fit the resonance hypothesis.

  • Seasonal cycles in stink bugs (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae) from the
           temperate zone: Diversity and control
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper reviews the diversity of seasonal cycles known in stink bugs (Heteroptera, Pentatomidae) from the temperate zone and is based on the data of 43 pentatomid species studied in detail up to date (Saulich and Musolin, 2011). All the seasonal cycles realized by pentatomids in the temperate zone can be divided into two large groups: univoltine and multivoltine cycles. In univoltine cycles, only one generation is annually realized. However, univoltinism of a particular species or population can be ensured by different mechanisms: its control can be endogenous (involving an obligate diapause) or exogenous (environmental, involving a facultative diapause). Furthermore, endogenously controlled univoltine seasonal cycles can include obligate embryonic (egg) diapause (e.g., Picromerus bidens and Apateticus cynicus), obligate nymphal diapause (e.g., Pentatoma rufipes) or obligate adult (reproductive) diapause (e.g., Palomena prasina, Palomena angulosa, and Menida scotti). Exogenously controlled seasonal cycles are more flexible. Many species that are multivoltine in the subtropical or warm temperate zones are univoltine further polewards. In this case, their univoltinism is controlled exogenously, or environmentally. The mechanism often involves such seasonal adaptations as photoperiodic response of facultative winter diapause induction with a high thermal optimum (e.g., Arma custos and Dybowskyia reticulata) or a high critical threshold of winter diapause induction response (e.g., Graphosoma lineatum). The seasonal cycles of some species include not only winter diapause (hibernation) but also summer diapause (aestivation). The diapausing stage can be the same (e.g., Nezara antennata has facultative adult winter and summer diapauses) or different (e.g., Picromerus bidens survives winter in obligate embryonic diapause and spends the hottest period of summer in facultative adult aestivation). All the multivoltine cycles follow the same general pattern, with one, two, or even more directly breeding generation(s) followed by a generation that enters winter diapause. However, this sequence may be complicated by incorporation of specific seasonal adaptations such as aestivation, migrations, different forms of seasonal polyphenism or polymorphism (e.g., seasonal changes of body color), etc. Many stink bugs demonstrate geographic clines of voltinism, producing several generations in the subtropical regions (environmentally controlled multivoltine development) and two or only one generation(s) polewards (environmentally controlled bi- or univoltinism). However, some species demonstrate a strictly bivoltine seasonal cycle: they always produce two annual generations, each with either winter or summer diapause. An example is Nezara antennata which produces two generations and enters facultative winter and summer diapauses. Semivoltine seasonal cycles last more than one year. They are not very rare among insects and are known in true bugs, but have not yet been recorded among pentatomids. Examples of different seasonal cycles are described and discussed in detail. Further discussion is focused on the ecological importance of photoperiodic and thermal responses in cases of natural or artificial dispersal of pentatomids beyond their original ranges. The phytophagous Nezara viridula and the predatory Podisus maculiventris and Perillus bioculatus are used as examples. An attempt is made to compare the phylogeny of Pentatomidae and distribution of realized patterns of their seasonal development. However, it is concluded that reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships cannot yet provide a sufficient basis for prediction of realized seasonal cycles. It is suggested that the terms uni-, bi-, multi-, and semivoltinism should refer to populations rather than species, since the realized patterns of seasonal development often differ between the northern and southern populations of the same broadly distributed species.

  • A review of the scarab beetle tribe Aphodiini (Coleoptera, Scarabaeidae)
           of the fauna of Russia
    • Abstract: Abstract An annotated list of 183 species of the dung-beetle tribe Aphodiini of the Russian fauna is given. The highest species diversity is characteristic of the southern mountainous regions of the country, the richest local faunas being known from the Lower Volga area. The greatest numbers of species are known from the steppe and broadleaved forest zones and from the nemoral types of altitudinal zonation of vegetation. The bulk of the fauna is formed by the species with wide ranges; 111 species occur in two or more landscape zones or altitudinal zonation types. Six groups of faunistically similar zoogeographic provinces are distinguished within the territory of Russia.

  • Movement patterns of the main insect pollinator groups during foraging on
           generalized plants
    • Abstract: Abstract Movements of pollinators in generalized plant-pollinator systems were investigated. Some species of insects, unlike the majority of the species studied, are shown to prefer areas with sparse plant cover. Thus, the composition of pollinators depends on the density of plant patches and can vary even within a distance of several meters. Within large plant patches, insects usually forage in a small plot and then move to another one.

  • Carpenter moths (Lepidoptera, Cossidae) of the Altai Mountain Range
    • Abstract: Abstract An annotated species list of carpenter moths (Lepidoptera, Cossidae) of the Altai Mountain Range is presented. It includes 26 species from 3 subfamilies. Two species are new to science: Semagystia tarbagataica Yakovlev, sp. n. and Dyspessa saissanica Yakovlev, sp. n. The former differs from the other species of the genus (except Semagystia enigma Yakovlev, 2007 from southeastern Turkey whose wing pattern is totally reduced) in the absence of wing pattern; a specific clavate shape of the process on the costal margin of valve is also its important diagnostic character. Dyspessa saissanica Yakovlev, sp. n. belongs to the well-revised Dyspessa salicicola (Eversmann, 1848) species group (Yakovlev, 2005); the closest species is D. salicicola, which also has elongate processes of the pectinate antennae and a weakly developed ridge on the costal marginof valve. The newly described species is different in having a poorly developed dark pattern on the forewings, very broad bases of the processes of the transtilla, a thinner base of the aedeagus, and thinner lateral processes of the juxta. In conclusion, the carpenter moth fauna of the Altai Mountains is briefly analyzed.

  • Cold-hardiness of the phoretic mites Anoetus myrmicarum (Acariformes,
           Anoetidae) from the ants Formica lemani (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) in the
           Kolyma Highland
    • Abstract: Abstract In the sparse larch forests of the upper Kolyma River, hypopi of the mite Anoetus myrmicarum (Scheucher, 1957) were found in several nests of the ant Formica lemani Bondroit, 1917. These mites were not found in hundreds of nests of the other 10 ant species examined in northeastern Asia. A possible ecological and physiological conditionality of the restricted distribution of phoretic mites was analyzed. For this purpose, coldhardiness of mites and their ant hosts, the biotopic distribution and the structure of nests, and the temperature conditions of overwintering were examined. At the stage of hypopus, the mites overwintered on ants in the overcooled stage; their mean supercooling temperatures (SCP) varied from −25.8 ± 0.3°C to −27.7 ± 0.4°C (min −32.2°C, n = 157). These values were by 0.1 to 7.0°C lower than the mean SCP of the ants from 8 tested nests of F. lemani (−20.7 ± 0.5°C to −25.7 ± 0.8°C). The soil temperatures at the level of winter chambers varied from −12°C to −15°C. Scarcity of findings of Anoetus myrmicarum in the Kolyma Highland is not associated with the limited cold-hardiness of the examined stages, but is most probably determined by interrelations between mites and ants.

  • The effect of toxin-producing Fusarium fungi on behavior of the rice
           weevil Sitophilus oryzae (Coleoptera, Dryophthoridae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The paper describes laboratory tests in which the behavior response of adult rice weevils Sitophilus oryzae L. to the presence of seven species of micromycetes of the genus Fusarium (F. graminearum, F. culmorum, F. cerealis, F. poae, F. sporotrichioides, F. langsethiae, and F. sibiricum; 3 strains for each species) infecting cereals was characterized. The chemicals of unkown structure, released by the fungi, can have both attractive and repellent effects on the weevils; in some cases a neutral response was observed. The strains of Fusarium species characterized as weak pathogens (F. langsethiae, F. poae, and F. sibiricum) in most cases stimulated attractive and neutral responses. Relatively strong pathogens (F. cerealis, F. culmorum, F. graminearum, and F. sporotrichioides) generally had a repellent effect. The results obtained are discussed in the context of possible relationships between Fusarium fungi and the rice weevil during their utilization of cereals as a shared food substrate.

  • Notes on the fleas Xenopsylla
    Jordan, 1925 (Pulicidae: Siphonaptera) in Vietnam as
           related to the problem of anthropogenic plague foci
    • Abstract: Abstract In the first half of the XX century, the flea Xenopsylla vexabilis, the main vector of the plague agent in the “natural plague foci” of the Hawaii, was shown to be a specific parasite of the small white-toothed rat Berylmys berdmorei, inhabiting the tropical forests and grasslands of Indochina, including Vietnam. X. vexabilis was not recorded in Vietnamese settlements. This flea was found in the fields bordering natural landscapes and agricultural areas as a parasite of the greater bandicoot rat Bandicota indica, Savile’s bandicoot rat B. savilei, and the rat Rattus koratensis. It was assumed that bandicoot rats may have played an important role in the introduction of the flea to the Pacific islands where X. vexabilis was then established on synanthropic rats. The new data do not support the concept of coevolution of the recent epizootic association Rattus exulans-Xenopsylla vexabilis-Yersinia pestis.

  • Modern classification and distribution of the family Issidae Spinola
           (Homoptera, Auchenorrhyncha: Fulgoroidea)
    • Abstract: Abstract The modern classification of the family Issidae s. str. is presented according to which the family consists of 3 tribes: Issini, Hemisphaeriini, and Parahiraciini and comprises a total of 994 species and subspecies in 159 genera. The largest tribe, Issini, is distributed worldwide and comprises 129 genera with 755 species and subspecies. The tribes Hemisphaeriini and Parahiraciini are much smaller and mostly distributed in the Indo-Malayan Realm with some taxa also present in the Eastern Palaearctic and the Oceania. The tribe Hemisphaeriini consists of 15 genera with 187 species and subspecies while Parahiraciini includes 14 genera with 38 species. The Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan Realms have the richest faunas of Issidae. In contrast, Equatorial Africa has a very poor fauna of the family, whereas the Australian fauna is still almost undescribed. Chimetopon camerunensis Schmidt is recorded for the first time from Central African Republic and Gabon, and Sarima erythrocyclos Fennah, from Taveuni Island (Fiji).

    • Abstract: Abstract A new oribatid mite species, Rhynchoribates parafabulosus sp. n., is described from Ecuador. This species is similar to R. fabulosus Beck 1961 (from Peru) in the rostrum structure and the length of prodorsal and notogastral setae. However, it clearly differs from the above species by the absence of thorns on the leg femora, location of adanal lyrifissures, and the structure of notogastral setae.

  • Not all dytiscidae have poorly developed mushroom bodies: The enigma of
    • Abstract: Abstract The majority of diving beetles studied has completely differentiated but poorly developed mushroom bodies. The Kenyon cells are not numerous, the calyces are small, and the pedunculi and lobes have a simple structure. New Kenyon cells are produced by few solitary neuroblasts. Cybister lateralimarginalis makes an amazing exception. Its mushroom bodies are strongly developed and comprise numerous Kenyon cells, large calyces, and a peduncular apparatus of a complicated structure. The Kenyon cells are produced in polyneuroblast proliferative centers. The grounds of such strong development of the mushroom body in Cybister remain unknown.

  • A taxonomic and morphological review of the genus        class="a-plus-plus">Cania Walker, 1855
           (Lepidoptera, Limacodidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on a complex study of morphology of adults, male and female genitalia, functional musculature of male genitalia, and molecular characters, three subgenera were distinguished in the genus Cania: the nominative one, Paracania Solovyev subgen. n. (type species Neaera bilinea Walker, 1855), and Minicania Solovyev subgen. n. (type species C. minuta Holloway, 1986). The genus Cania presently includes 21 species, two of which are described as new ones: C. (Paracania) lourensi Solovyev sp. n. (Philippines: Luzon, Negros, Panay) and C. (Minicania) kitchingi Solovyev sp. n. (Thailand). New synonymies are established: C. bilinea (Walker, 1855) = C. polyhelixa Wu et Fang, 2009 syn. n. and C. robusta Hering, 1931 = C. pseudobilinea Wu et Fang, 2009 syn. n.

  • The influence of climatic changes on range expansion and phenology of the
           Colorado potato beetle (       class="a-plus-plus">Leptinotarsa decemlineata,
           Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae) in the territory of Russia
    • Abstract: Abstract Analysis of expansion of the potential range of the Colorado potato beetle Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say and shifts of the zones with different number of generations per season was carried out using cartographic modeling. The shifts were caused by the climate changes in Russia observed in recent decades. The annual sum of effective mean daily air temperatures was selected as the main criterion which determines both the suitability of the area for the Colorado potato beetle and the number of generations that can be produced in one season. The main range expansion was observed in the east direction, and the greatest changes took place during expanding of the zones with the possible development of one or two generations. The boundaries of the zone where development of three generations is possible changed to a lesser degree.

  • Mixacarus (       class="a-plus-plus">Phyllolohmannia)        class="a-plus-plus">pectinatus sp. n. (Acari,
           Oribatida, Lohmanniidae), a new species of oribatid mites from India
    • Abstract: Abstract A new species of oribatid mites (adult and juvenile instars), Mixacarus (Phyllolohmannia) pectinatus sp. n., is described from India. The new species differs from the majority of species of the subgenus in the absence of distally dilated setae and narrower leaf-shaped setae on dorsal and ventral body sides.
