  • Physiological and biochemical aspects of interactions between insect
           parasitoids and their hosts
    • Authors: V. V. Glupov; N. A. Kryukova
      Pages: 513 - 524
      Abstract: In the present review, available literary data on physiological and biochemical interactions between parasitoids and their hosts are analyzed. In order to achieve successful development inside or on their hosts, parasitoids widely use various strategies aimed at suppressing host immunity. Suppression agents used by parasitoids include venom and ovarian fluid components as well as symbiotic microorganisms. The influence of parasitoids on the host organism is complicated, covering many physiological functions and inducing changes of the host metabolism and behavior. The influence of ecto- and endoparasitoids on the host organism is analyzed separately.

  • Variations of space use in males of the banded demoiselle ( Calopteryx
           splendens , Zygoptera, Odonata): Alternative tactics or an age-dependent
    • Authors: A. S. Opaev; E. N. Panov
      Pages: 525 - 536
      Abstract: Two spatial tactics are usually distinguished in males of Calopteryx damselflies: territorial and nonterritorial. These tactics are believed to underlie two alternative condition-dependent reproductive tactics in these insects, and territorial males are believed to copulate more often. With age, males become weaker, turn nonterritorial, and only occasionally manage to copulate. However, the details of space use by damselflies are poorly known, which hinders the interpretation of the existing empirical data. We describe the space use by individually marked males of the banded demoiselle C. splendens studied during three field seasons in Vladimir Province, Russia. Each male on each day of observations was characterized as either territorial or non-territorial, and the sites of encounter were mapped. The probability of being territorial declined with the male’s age. The spatial tactics (territorial vs. non-territorial) on a given day strongly influenced the tactics used on the following day. We identified the territorial and non-territorial phases in the life of a male damselfly, which occurred consecutively and had a roughly similar duration. During the territorial phase, the male occupied a certain territory and tried to hold it as long as possible. The male abandoned its territory in two cases: (1) when it was driven onto a different territory as the result of competition with other males, or (2) when it was exhausted and became non-territorial. Thus, the space use by the male changed predictably during its life. Therefore, direct comparison of morphological or other characteristics in territorial vs. non-territorial males, frequently made in the literature, makes little sense. Further progress in studying the so-called “alternative reproductive tactics” in damselflies may be more successfully achieved by comparing individual life trajectories of different males (e.g. duration of territorial and non-territorial periods, the number of consecutively occupied territories, etc.). We performed correlation analysis and found that the above parameters did not depend on the wing and abdomen length of the males.

  • Basic elements of behavior of the cricket Phaeophilacris bredoides
           Kaltenbach (Orthoptera, Gryllidae)
    • Authors: A. M. Lunichkin; M. K. Zhemchuzhnikov; A. N. Knyazev
      Pages: 537 - 544
      Abstract: The intraspecific behavior of the non-singing cricket Phaeophilacris bredoides Kaltenbach, 1986, which has no tympanal system, stridulatory apparatus, and classical acoustic communication, was studied. Even though this cricket has no song, its intraspecific behavior can be differentiated into reproductive and agonistic (defensive and aggressive), as this was done before for singing crickets. The main elements and the sequence of the phases were described for reproductive behavior. The active role during copulation belongs to the male. Wingflicks and rocking movements of the male can function as a “song.” Wing-flicks apparently generate air movements that function as short-range signals during reproductive and aggressive behavior. Substrate-borne vibrations produced by rocking also seem to be associated with aggressive behavior. Antennal contacts form an important part of interaction between crickets of both sexes. Thus, intraspecific signaling is at least partly mediated by mechanosensory channels. The assumption about the possible direction of evolution in the singing and non-singing groups of crickets was made.

    • Authors: M. V. Mokrousov; I. B. Popov
      Pages: 559 - 599
      Abstract: A list of 208 digger-wasp species (Hymenoptera, Apoidea: Ampulicidae, Sphecidae, Crabronidae) from the Black Sea coast and adjacent areas within Krasnodar Territory, Abkhazia, and Adygea is given. Gorytes schmiedeknechti Handlirsch, 1888, Miscophus albufeirae Andrade, 1952, Psenulus fulvicornis (Schenck, 1857), and Passaloecus pictus Ribaut, 1952) are new to the Russian fauna, and 47 species are recorded for the first time from Abkhazia. Ectemnius guttatus (Vander Linden, 1829) does not occur in the Western Caucasus; the record of the species from this region was based on a misidentified female of E. lituratus Pz. Tachysphex gibbus Kohl, 1885, stat. n. is considered a distinct species based on its ecological and morphological features.

    • Authors: S. V. Aibulatov
      Pages: 600 - 610
      Abstract: The data on the fauna of blackflies of the tribe Simuliini (Diptera: Simuliidae) of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) comprising the available literature, collections of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and new material collected in Yakutia were analyzed. Three new species were recorded in the fauna of Yakutia: Archesimulium polare Rubzov, 1940, A. splendidum Rubzov, 1940, and A. tumulosum Rubzov, 1956. Distribution of 11 species was clarified. Processing of the collected material confirmed the presence of 9 blackfly species previously known from Yakutia. On the whole, the blackfly fauna of the region comprises 27 species.

  • Species composition and landscape-zonal distribution of horseflies
           (Diptera, Tabanidae) in the territory of Belgorod Province
    • Authors: Yu. A. Prisniy
      Pages: 611 - 619
      Abstract: A list of 30 species of the family Tabanidae recorded in Belgorod Province is provided, and data on the landscape-zonal distribution, typical biotopes, and dates of flight in the region are given for each species. The greatest number of horsefly species (24) was recorded in the southern forest-steppe subzone, and smaller numbers, in the central forest-steppe subzone (18) and the steppe zone (16). Half of the forest and forest-steppe species extend into the steppe zone while some southern species penetrate into the forest-steppe zone. The pattern of horsefly distribution is determined by the biotopic conditions. The boundaries of distribution of individual species do not distinctly correspond to those of the landscape subzones.

  • New data on the changes in the abundance and distribution of several
           species of beetles (Coleoptera) in European Russia and the Caucasus
    • Authors: B. A. Korotyaev
      Pages: 620 - 630
      Abstract: Changes in the abundance and distribution of selected species of beetles in European Russia and in the Caucasus are reported. Most of these species have been recorded from the Northwestern Caucasus in the last 10–15 years. The abundance and distribution during the last two years have changed most sharply in the introduced species, the Harlequin lady beetle Harmonia axyridis and two East Asian bruchids, Megabruchidius dorsalis and M. tonkineus. In 2016, the latter has been found in Georgia for the first time, and Harmonia axyridis was found in St. Petersburg. Abundance of the weevil Alcidodes karelinii with the range situated mostly east of the Caucasus and Volga River remains in Northwestern Caucasus at about the previous level. The flea-weevil species, a leaf miner on Ulmus pumila, misidentified previously as Orchestes mutabilis, is described in this paper as Orchestes steppensis sp. n. based on the material from Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and Northern China; no its further distribution westward in 2015–2016 has been found. This species, rapidly widening its range in North America in the recent decade, is misidentified there as Orchestes alni. A key for differentiation of Orchestes alni, O. mutabilis and O. steppensis sp. n. is provided with photographs of adults of all three species. Magdalis armigera has increased abundance in Northwestern Caucasus in 2016 and was for the first time found in Northwestern Russia (Pskov Province) in 2015. Regular faunistic surveys during several decades provide a possibility of recording considerable changes in the abundance of some common species of Coleoptera, often associated with changes in their distribution.

  • On the taxonomic position of Issus reticulatus Bervoets, 1910 (Hemiptera:
           Fulgoroidea: Issidae) from Baltic amber
    • Authors: V. M. Gnezdilov; T. Bourgoinb
      Pages: 631 - 633
      Abstract: A new genus Bolbossus gen. n. is erected in the tribe Parahiraciini for Issus bervoetsi Gnezdilov et Bourgoin, nom. n. pro Issus reticulatus Bervoets, 1910 (nom. praeocc., non Issus reticulatus Herrich-Schäffer, 1835) described from the Baltic amber of Kaliningrad Province in Russia. The genus Issites Haupt, 1956 is assigned to the nominotypical subtribe of the tribe Issini Spinola. Bolbossus bervoetsi (Gnezdilov et Bourgoin) is the first species of the Oriental tribe of the family Issidae discovered in Europe. This finding implies the dispersal of taxa from the Oriental Region to the Western Palaearctic during the Eocene. Other fossil Issidae are briefly discussed.

  • Geographic variability of morphogenetic diapause in larvae and nymphs of
           the taiga tick Ixodes persulcatus (Acarina, Ixodidae)
    • Authors: Yu. S. Korotkov
      Pages: 634 - 645
      Abstract: The critical day length inducing morphogenetic diapause in engorged larvae and nymphs of the taiga tick Ixodes persulcatus Schulze, 1930 was shown to vary with both latitude and longitude. Intraspecific differences in ecological responses of larvae and nymphs to the day length were most pronounced in the latitudinal direction. The critical day length was 13.5–14.5 h in the southern part of the species range (40–43°N) and up to 18–19 h in its northern part (62°N). Longitudinal variation is closely linked to the severity of the climate increasing from west to east. It was demonstrated for the first time that mass diapause induction in nymphs may occur not only during the period of decreasing day length but also during the summer solstice, the latter variant being observed only in the sharply continental climate of Eastern Siberia. Adaptive advantages of this photoperiodic response under the conditions of a short summer are discussed. Diapause in ticks occurs in response to environmental factors, such as changes in the photoperiod, and represents the main adaptation by which ticks synchronize their activity with biotic resources.

      Pages: 389 - 394
      Abstract: Polyandry is a specific phenomenon increasing genetic diversity. To analyze the level of polyandry and to assess the contribution of drones to the genetic diversity of honey bee colonies, three microsatellite loci (A008, Ap049, and AC117) were studied in honey bees from colonies of different origin (Middle Russian race, Carpathian race, and hybrids) in Tomsk Province. The share of the introduced paternal alleles varied between colonies from 6.67 to 28.00%. The highest genetic diversity was observed in hybrid colonies (25–28% of introduced paternal alleles).

      Abstract: Anatomy of the adult fairyfly Anaphes flavipes (Hymenoptera, Mymaridae) is described in detail for the first time, based on series of sections and 3D computer reconstruction. Despite its tiny size, A. flavipes does not demonstrate strong morphological simplification, except for the merging of certain skeletal elements, a slight simplification of endoskeleton, lack of midgut muscles, a reduced number of Malpighian tubules, simplification of the tracheal and circulatory systems, asymmetry of the central nervous system, and the absence of several muscles.

      Abstract: Anatomy of adults of Trichogramma evanescens (Hymenoptera: Trichogrammatidae) is described in detail for the first time based on series of sections and 3D computer reconstruction. The complex structure of the exoskeleton and musculature (except for reductions of individual muscles) is preserved in T. evanescens despite its tiny size. Considerable simplification is observed in the structure of the intestine, tracheal and circulatory systems, and in the reduced number of Malpighian tubules. Thus, the smallest Hymenoptera (Mymaridae and Trichogrammatidae) demonstrate both the effects of miniaturization universal for insects (reduction of the head endoskeleton, circulatory and respiratory systems) and specific ones.

      Abstract: The larvae of Cinygmula malaisei (Ulmer, 1927) and Cinygmula unicolorata Tshernova, 1979 from the Russian Far East are described and illustrated. The larva of Cinygmula unicolorata is similar to those of Cinygmula putoranica Kluge, 1980 and Cinygmula uyka Gorovaya et Tiunova, 2013 but differs from the larva of C. uyka in the absence of gill filaments and from that of C. unicolorata in the shape of the first gill (tergalia). The upper outer margin of the first gill is rounded in the larva of C. unicolorata and almost straight in C. putoranica; the gills of C. unicolorata are matte and the trachea is poorly expressed, in contrast to the distinctly brown trachea of C. putoranica. The larvae of Cinygmula malaisei are similar to those of C. irina and C. autumnalis but differ from the latter in the presence of gill filaments. The larva of C. malaise differs from that of C. irina in the rounded outer margin of the first gill, the shape of gills VI and VII, and in the size of the leg segments.

  • New species of the aphid tribe Macrosiphini (Homoptera, Aphididae,
           Aphidinae) from Kazakhstan
    • Authors: R. Kh. Kadyrbekov
      Pages: 445 - 451
      Abstract: Two new species of the genera Uroleucon Mordvilko, 1914 and Pleotrichophorus Börner, 1930 are described from Kazakhstan. Uroleucon dzhungaricum sp. n. feeding on Senecio nemorensis L. (Asteraceae) in the Dzhungar Ala Tau is closely related to U. minor (Börner, 1940). Both these species differ from the closely related U. solidaginis (Fabricius, 1794) in a smaller length ratio between the processus terminalis and the 3rd antennal segment (0.8–1.0 versus 1.0–1.5). The new species differs from U. minor (Born.) in a greater number of the secondary rhinaria on the 3rd antennal segment of the apterous viviparous females (21–37 versus 15–21), in a fewer number of hairs on the cauda (10–16 and 15–23), and in the host plant. Pleotrichophorus ugamicus Kadyrbekov, sp. n. feeding on Artemisia santolinifolia Turcz. is described from the Sairam-Ugam Natural Park (Southern Kazakhstan). The new species is similar to P. glandulosus (Kaltenbach, 1846) and P. achilleae Holman, 1965. Pleotrichophorus ugamicus sp. n. differs from these species in the length ratio of the processus terminalis to the base of the 6th antennal segment (4.1–5.0 versus 5.0–9.0 and 5.1–6.2), in that of the ultimate rostral segment to the 2nd segment of the hind tarsus (0.68–0.76 versus 0.80–0.97 and 0.80–0.90), and in the host plant. This species differs from P. glandulosus in the ratio of the length of dorsal hairs on tergites I–V to the basal diameter of the 3rd antennal segment (1.0–1.2 and 1.4–1.7). In addition, the new species differs from P. achilleae in the length ratio of the 3rd antennal segment to the 6th segment (0.56–0.66 versus 0.70–0.87) and to the processus terminalis (0.67-0.82 versus 1.39–1.80), as well as in the shape of the dorsal hairs. A key to the Palaearctic species of the genus Pleotrichophorus is presented.

  • Morphometrical characters of the hypopygium in the Dolichopodidae
           (Diptera) and their use in the systematics of the family
    • Authors: O. P. Negrobov; M. A. Chursina; O. V. Selivanova
      Pages: 472 - 483
      Abstract: Morphology of the hypopygium was investigated in 496 species from 128 genera of the family Dolichopodidae. Based on twenty morphological and morphometrical characteristics, a parsimonic dendrogram of the Dolichopodidae subfamilies was constructed. Variance analysis of the morphometrical data allowed revealing diagnostic characteristics for the subfamilies and genera of Dolichopodidae. Such characteristics as the relative lengths of the epandrium, surstylus, cercus, and apical and basoventral epandrial processes can be used for taxonomic diagnostics of the subfamilies and genera.
