  • Acoustic signals in insects: A reproductive barrier and a taxonomic
    • Authors: D. Yu. Tishechkin; V. Yu. Vedenina
      Pages: 1127 - 1164
      Abstract: Abstract In singing insects, the song is an important component of the specific mate recognition system (SMRS). In communities of sympatric singing species, there is a partitioning of communication channels, the so-called “acoustic niches.” Within one community, the songs of different species always differ in temporal or frequency characters, i.e. occupy different acoustic niches. However, conspecific songs do not always act as an interspecific reproductive barrier, despite always being a SMRS component. The species that do not communicate acoustically due to allopatry, different timing of vocalization, inhabiting different biotopes, or unmatched food specializations can produce similar songs while forming reproductively isolated communities. Individuals of different sexes need not only to recognize a conspecific mate but also to evaluate its “quality.” The close-range signal (courtship song) provides more opportunities for choosing the “best” male than does the distant signal (calling song). In many species of Orthoptera, courtship includes not only acoustic but also vibrational, visual, chemical, and mechanical signals. An analysis of cricket songs showed the courtship songs to be on average more elaborate and variable than the calling songs. At the same time, due to the difference in mating behavior between the two groups, the acoustic component of courtship is used for mate quality evaluation to a greater extent in grasshoppers than in crickets. The courtship songs of grasshoppers are generally more elaborate in temporal structure than cricket songs; moreover, they may be accompanied by visual displays such as movements of various body parts. Thus, song evolution in grasshoppers is more strongly driven by sexual selection than that in crickets. According to the reinforcement hypothesis, the premating barrier between hybridizing species becomes stronger in response to reduced hybrid fitness. However, our behavioral experiments with two groups of hybridizing grasshopper species did not confirm the reinforcement hypothesis. We explain this, firstly, by a low level of genetic incompatibility between the hybridizing species and secondly, by high hybrid fitness when attracting a mate. A high competitive capability of hybrids may be accounted for by attractiveness of new elements in hybrid courtship songs. When we divide similar forms based on their songs, we in fact distinguish biological species using the criterion of their reproductive isolation. Acoustic differences between species are usually greater than morphological ones. Therefore, song analysis allows one to determine the real status of doubtful species-rank taxa, to distinguish species in a medley of sibling forms, and to reveal cryptic species in the cases when morphological studies fail to provide a univocal result. At the same time, songs are subject to intraspecific variation the range of which is different in different groups. Therefore, it is necessary to study which degree of difference corresponds to the species level before interpreting the status of some forms based on song comparisons. Besides, song similarities cannot indicate conspecificity of acoustically isolated forms; on the other hand, song differences between these forms prove that they are full-rank species.

      Abstract: Abstract Anatomy of the adult and the first-instar nymph of Liposcelis bostrychophila (Psocoptera, Liposcelididae) is described in detail for the first time based on series of sections and 3D computer reconstruction. Despite its tiny size, no strong structural simplification is observed in Liposcelis. The main features of the anatomy of this species associated with miniaturization are the merging of individual skeletal elements and simplification of the endoskeleton in the nymph, lack of the midgut muscles, simplification of the tracheal and circulatory systems, oligomerization and concentration of ganglia, asymmetry of the central nervous system in the nymph, and the absence of several muscles. Changes in the relative volumes of organs during the postembryonic development of Liposcelis are analyzed and compared with other minute insects.

  • Skeleton and musculature of the male genitalia in the family Nothybidae
    • Authors: T. V. Galinskaya; A. I. Shatalkin; O. G. Ovtshinnikova
      Pages: 1182 - 1193
      Abstract: Abstract Sclerites and musculature of the male genitalia of Nothybidae (Diptera) were studied for the first time. Symmetry of the genital and pregenital sclerites, similar to that in Psilidae, was revealed. The muscles of the male genitalia of Nothybus resemble the apomorphic plan of Cyclorrhapha (Sciomyzidae, Scathophagidae and Calliphoridae) due to the splitting of the hypandrium and hypandrial muscles.

  • Evolution of postgonites in frit flies (Diptera, Chloropidae, Meromyza )
    • Authors: A. F. Safonkin; T. A. Triseleva; A. A. Yatsuk; N. A. Akent’eva
      Pages: 1194 - 1202
      Abstract: Abstract Evolutionary trends of the morphometric characteristics of postgonites (structures important for copulation) and variability of the mtDNA COI gene region were analyzed for 27 species of the genus Meromyza Mg. The total area, the area and height of the protuberance, and the length ratio of the main part and the protuberance were analyzed for the anterior process of the postgonite. The height and way of attachment were analyzed for the posterior process of the postgonite. Based on the mtDNA COI locus, eight clusters were distinguished in Network; they formed three groups differing in the area of the anterior process and the way of attachment of the posterior process. The size characteristics of the male sexual appendages of the ancestral forms within the genus Meromyza show an evolutionary trend toward an increase in the postgonite area, while within the clusters there is a trend toward a decrease in this area relative to the species most resembling the hypothetical ancestor. The ancestral forms were characterized by a small area of the postgonite and a short and narrow protuberance of its anterior process. An increase in this area may have led to reduction of the statistical significance of differences in the protuberance and to the appearance of a flap on the lateral part of the postgonite. The functional significance of the postgonite elements and the flap is discussed. Based on the studied morphometric characteristics, the species M. maculata and M. cognata can be placed in the known clusters, even though their COI sequences have not been determined.

      Abstract: Abstract Two weevil species, Rhinoncus autumnalis Korotyaev, 1980 and Orchestes medvedevi (Korotyaev, 1995), comb. n. (from Rhynchaenus), both described from Mongolia, are recorded from Russia (Buryatia) for the first time. A key to five Orchestes species associated with elms in Eastern Siberia, the Russian Far East, and Mongolia is provided. Aizobius sedi (Germar, 1818) is recorded for the first time from Eastern Siberia based on the recent findings in Buryatia and on older collections from Tuva where it is associated with Orostachys spinosa (L.) C.A. Mey. (Crassulaceae); it is also recorded for the first time from Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia. Magdalis (Aika) margaritae Barrios, 1984, native of Mongolia, Northern China and the south of the Russian Far East, is recorded from Buryatia. Lixus (Broconius) korotyaevi Ter-Minassian, 1989, formerly known in Russia only from southern Tuva, is recorded from Buryatia where it was collected on Suaeda 'prostrata Pallas, which is the first known host of this species. Rhamphus 'oxyacanthae (Marsham, 1802) is reported from Buryatia where it was collected from Cotoneaster melanocarpa, and from Mongolia.

      Abstract: Abstract A study of interspecific relations in the tritrophic system “plant–spider mite–predatory gall midge Feltiella sp.” on cucumber cultivars differing in their resistance to the phytophage has shown that the formation and functioning of the consortium are largely influenced by genetic properties of the plant and ecological features of the consorts. The nature of ecological association of the predator and its prey in the tritrophic system appears to depend on the cucumber genotype and on the morphological and physiological state of the plant. It has been shown that at different densities of the spider mite on cucumber plants, the predator increases the plant resistance by reducing the pest density, while genetic resistance of the plant restricts the phytophage densities thereby increasing the efficiency of the acariphage.

      Abstract: Abstract Field tests conducted in Leningrad Province of Russia showed methyl salicylate to be highly attractive to the dance fly Rhamphomyia (Amydroneura) gibba (Fallén, 1816) (Diptera, Empidoidea, Empididae). Yellow sticky traps baited with methyl salicylate caught similar numbers of males and females, although males somewhat prevailed at the beginning of the flight while females were slightly more numerous at its end. Rhamphomyia gibba is the first species of the family Empididae for which an attractant chemical is known, and methyl salicylate is the only attractant currently known for Empididae.

      Pages: 1086 - 1088
      Abstract: Abstract The brown marmorated stink bug Halyomorpha halys (Stål, 1855) is recorded for the first time from Russia (Khosta and Adler districts of the city of Sochi), Abkhazia (Pitsunda), and Georgia (Khobi Municipality). Outbreaks of H. halys populations were detected in all of these regions in October 2016. More than a hundred specimens congregated for overwintering were collected in Sochi during two days. According to the personal communications of the local people, the species appeared in Sochi not later than in 2013, and in Georgia not later than in 2015. It must have been brought to Sochi from Europe (from Italy) with planting material of ornamental plants for landscaping the XXII Olympic Winter Games. Thereafter it spread to Abkhazia and Georgia. Additional steps to identification of H. halys are provided for the keys to the true bugs of the European part of the former USSR (Kerzhner and Jaczewski, 1964).

      Pages: 1089 - 1091
      Abstract: Abstract Four species of Pronotalia Gradwell (Hymenoptera, Eulophidae: Tetrastichinae) are recorded from the Lagodekhi Reserve (Georgia). Formerly, only P. carlinarum (Szelényi et Erdös) was known from Transcaucasia (Armenia) (Kostjukov, 1978). Pronotalia fiorii (Domenichini), P. orobanchiae Graham, and P. trypetae Gradwell are recorded for Georgia and Transcaucasia for the first time. In addition to these species, only 4 species are known from Europe and Anatolia: P. erzurumica Doganlar, P. hungarica (Erdös), P. inflata Graham, and P. tortumensis Doganlar; thus, 50% of Pronotalia species from Europe and Anatolia occur in the Lagodekhi Reserve.

  • Fleas (Siphonaptera) associated with mammals and birds in the Ciscaucasia
    • Authors: B. K. Kotti
      Pages: 1108 - 1114
      Abstract: Abstract The flea fauna of the Ciscaucasia comprises 76 species, 13 of which are associated with birds and the rest, with mammals. Rodent parasites are the most numerous; fleas associated with carnivores, bats, and insectivores are less abundant. Fleas parasitize different species of birds of the orders Passeriformes, Anseriformes, Falconiformes, and Strigiformes. Among 41 flea genera known from the Caucasus, species of the genera Amalaraeus, Araeopsylla, Atyphloceras, Caenopsylla, Callopsylla, Doratopsylla, Paraneopsylla, Peromyscopsylla, Phaenopsylla, Tarsopsylla, and Wagnerina are absent in the Ciscaucasia. Only two subendemic species were revealed in the region; 33 flea species are distributed over the entire Ciscaucasia, while the distribution of others is limited to landscapes of one or two natural zones.
