  • Structure of the cephalic ganglion in the larvae and pupae of the tortrix
           moth Archips podana Scopoli (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The structure of cephalic ganglia was studied in all the larval instars and the pupae of the large fruittree tortrix Archips podana Scopoli. The main centers of the supraesophageal ganglion develop non-uniformly. At the larval stage, the mushroom bodies and structures of the central complex develop earlier than the optic ganglia and olfactory lobes. Continuity in the visual system development is expressed in integration of residues of the larval stemmata into the imaginal optic lobes at the pupal stage.

  • Factors influencing the population density of the weevil Microplontus
           millefolii Schze. (Coleoptera, Curculionidae: Ceutorhynchinae) in the
           environs of St. Petersburg
    • Abstract: Abstract Environmental factors determining the population density of the weevil Microplontus millefolii, a stem miner of the common tansy, Tanacetum vulgare, were investigated in the suburbs and environs of St. Petersburg, Russia. Larvae or empty mines of M. millefolii were found in 39 out of 43 inspected sites; in total, 620 out of 2283 T. vulgare stems were infested. The percentage of infested stems per site ranged from 0 up to almost 90%, the density of infestation (the mean number of larvae and empty mines per stem) ranged up to 2.3 with the mean of 0.51 for all inspected sites. The surrounding vegetation was the single environmental factor significantly correlated with the percentage of infested stems (30 and 20% in sites with domination of grasses and of forbs, correspondingly). The mechanisms of this dependence are not clear. Probably, the domination of grasses (that is a relatively advanced stage of the vegetation succession) is correlated with the longer period of time for accumulation of phytophagous insects associated with tansy. The analysis of data for individual stems (within-site distribution) showed that the mean number of the weevil larvae almost linearly increased with the diameter of the stem. The dependence on the host plant population density was also strong but not linear: both in dense patches (percent cover of more than 50%) and in sparse plants (percent cover of 1% and less) the density of infestation was higher than at a medium abundance of the host plant. In addition, in the patches with only a short time shadow from trees or tall herbs the density of infestation was higher than in those where the shadow stayed for longer or was absent at all. The mean density of T. vulgare infestation by M. millefolii was independent of the type of habitat (meadows, old fields, roadsides, ruderal sites), the size of the site, the average cover of T. vulgare, the total cover of green plants, the degree of anthropogenic disturbance, soil composition, and humidity. This ability to infest T. vulgare in very different habitats allows considering M. millefolii as a potentially effective agent for biological control of the common tansy in the invasion areas.

  • Types of parasitism in eulophid wasps (Hymenoptera, Eulophidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Analysis of the published data on parasitism of eulophid wasps is presented. Eighteen types of parasitism are distinguished, of which 17 types occur in Tetrastichinae, 10 in Entedoninae, 8 in Eulophinae, and 2 types in Entiinae. The possible patterns of the parasitism evolution in the first three subfamilies are hypothesized.

  • On the fauna and ecology of phytophagous beetles (Coleoptera:
           Chrysomeloidea, Curculionoidea) of the Trans-Volga and Cis-Ural areas
    • Abstract: Abstract Data on the distribution and bionomics in the east of European Russia are reported for 77 species of phytophagous beetles (25 species of Chrysomelidae, 5 species of Bruchidae, 4 species of Apionidae, 1 species of Nanophyidae, and 42 species of Curculionidae). Fifty species are recorded for the first time for the forest-steppe zone of the Trans-Volga and Cis-Ural regions. Of these, 5 species (Phyllotreta procera, Aphthona kuntzei, A. franzi, Bruchidius cinerascens, Lixus canescens, Gymnetron sauromatum) and one intraspecific form of an obscure taxonomic rank (Coptocephala chalybaea chalybaea) are new to the east of European Russia. Three steppe species (Cryptocephalus halophilus, Aphthona tolli and Ceutorhynchus tesquorum) are new to the European fauna, and Cryptocephalus halophilus, previously known only from Kazakhstan and recently found in the steppe zone of the Southern Cis-Urals (Orenburg Province), is new to the Russian fauna. New host plants are reported for 25 species of beetles.

  • The life cycle of the taiga tick Ixodes persulcatus in the dark taiga
           forests of the Eastern Sayan Plateau
    • Abstract: Abstract The life cycle of Ixodes persulcatus was studied in natural taiga environments of the Eastern Sayan Plateau (the Kemchug Upland, 56°10’N, 91°30’E). Engorged larvae and nymphs can develop with or without morphogenetic diapause, the ratio of these two ways being 77.25 / 22.75% and 43.43 / 56.57% for larvae and nymphs, respectively. The hypothetical seasonal hemipopulation consists of 34.5 ± 4.5, 50.1 ± 1.3, 13.2 ± 4.0, and 2.2% of unfed adults completing the 3-year, 4-year, 5-year, and 6-year life cycle, respectively. The mean life span is 3.83 ± 0.10 years. The “life table” predicting the probability of survival to the adult stage was developed.

  • A new species of the blister-beetle genus Meloe L. (Coleoptera, Meloidae)
           from Tajikistan
    • Abstract: Abstract A new species, Meloe (Meloe) kulabensis sp. n., is described from southwestern Tajikistan (Kulob, = Kulyab). The new species is characterized by rather slender legs with an almost straight middle tibia, comparatively long and narrow tarsi, the 1st segment of the hind tarsus almost 5 times as long as wide, a comparatively large transverse eye diameter (the distance between the eyes are 3 times the transverse eye diameter), a free (not merging) punctation, and a peculiar structure of the male genitalia. Similarly to Meloe ovalicollis Reitt., the new species bears a narrow brush of short and not dense hairs on the ventral surface of the 1st-4th segments of the fore tarsus. Meloe ovalicollis is recorded for the first time for Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.

  • Karyotype and morphology of the midge Stictochironomus crassiforceps
           (Kieffer) (Diptera, Chironomidae) from several parts of the Palaearctic
    • Abstract: Abstract The karyotype characteristics of Stictochironomus crassiforceps (Kieffer) from several parts of the Palaearctic were studied. The polythene chromosomes were mapped, the main markers were described, and cytophotomaps of the populations from Armenia and Russia (Kabardino-Balkaria and the Middle Volga region) were compared. The karyotypes of S. crassiforceps from these three populations were found to differ in the nucleoli number, homo- and heterozygous inversions, and paracentromeric heterochromatin content. The larval, pupal, and adult male morphology of S. crassiforceps from Armenia and Kabardino-Balkaria is briefly described.

  • New data on grass flies (Diptera, Chloropidae) of the Chukchi Autonomous
           Area
    • Abstract: Abstract Twenty species of Chloropidae were collected using yellow pan traps and net-sweeping in the elfin wood subzone in the lower course of the Anadyr River (Chukchi Autonomous Area). Only two species were abundant: Oscinella frit L. in yellow pan traps and Pseudopachychaeta ruficeps Zett., in a sweep-net. The vast majority of grass flies did not occur outside the river floodland; the only exception was Ps. ruficeps which inhabited a wide range of biotopes including the hummocky tundra. Summarizing all the available published and original data has increased the number of Chloropidae species known from the Chukchi Autonomous Area to twenty-six. The taxonomic and trophic compositions of this fauna of Chloropidae are compared with the faunas of some regions of the European North and Alaska. Suggestions are made on the preadaptations of some species which allowed them to colonize regions with arctic and subarctic climates.

  • A new tribe, a new genus, and a new species of the subfamily
           Dictyopharinae (Homoptera, Dictyopharidae) from Chile
    • Abstract: Abstract Rancoda rakitovi gen. et sp. n. is described from Chile (the La Campana National Park, Valparaiso Region), for which a new monotypical tribe Rancodini trib. n. is established in the subfamily Dictyopharinae. The characteristic features of the new tribe are sharp brachyptery (the orgerioid habitus), the presence of sensory pits in the adults, two spines in the inner group on the apex of the hind tibia, a simple median carina on the abdominal tergites, and the straight margin between the metope and the clypeus. Similarity between the advanced representatives of the subfamily Orgeriinae (sensory pits in the adults) is convergent and is combined with the primitive characters which are absent in all the Orgeriinae but present in the Dictyopharinae.

  • Developmental biology and ecological peculiarities of the relict longhorn
           beetle Callipogon relictus Semenov, 1899 (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The developmental biology of the relict longhorn beetle Callipogon relictus Semenov, 1899 was studied from egg to adult in the laboratory for the first time. The molting dynamics and morphometric characteristics of all the larval instars were determined. The location of larvae within the tree trunk was investigated by nondestructive modern methods. The reproductive behavior and the process of oviposition are described. Individual development of the species under laboratory conditions, at constant temperature and humidity, took 44 months, suggesting that in the nature it extends over at least four years.

  • The life cycle and production of three common stonefly species (Insecta,
           Plecoptera) in the Kedrovaya River (the south of Primorskii Territory)
    • Abstract: Abstract The life cycles and production parameters of three common detritivorous stonefly species (Paracapnia khorensis, Amphinemura verrucosa, and Taenionema japonicum) from the Kedrovaya River at the Kedrovaya Pad Reserve (the south of Primorskii Territory, Russian Far East) were studied. Judging from the body size histograms, all these species are univoltine and have no winter diapause. Eggs develop directly; larval growth is slow, takes about 282–295 days, and proceeds even at low water temperatures in winter. The P. khorensis population is characterized by synchronous adult emergence and recruitment, as well as by slow continuous increase in larval linear size and body mass from June to March. Amphinemura verrucosa adults have a prolonged flight period from June to August, and their recruitment takes place for two months, till the end of November. Larvae grow during autumn and winter, but the most rapid growth is recorded in spring, when the water temperature rises, just before adult emergence in June and July. The development of T. japonicum is characterized by larval diapause in August and September when the water temperature is high. In October, larval growth is resumed and remains rapid through autumn and winter, up to adult emergence in May. The species studied had similar values of instantaneous growth rate (0.021–0.022 day−1), cohort production efficiency P/Bcohort (6.01–6.55), and annual efficiency of population production P/Bannual (7.78–8.11). More variable throughout the growing period was the mean biomass, and this accounted for the differences in secondary production values which ranged from 13.2 to 130.7 mg dry mass/m2.

The new species differs from the other species of the T. minima group in the bright metallic silvery pruinosity forming large dorsolateral spots on tergites III and IV and in large, moderately wide and elongate surstyli with angled inner and outer margins (see figure). The diagnostic characters of the new species, including the structure of the male genitalia, are illustrated and keyed.
