  • Ground beetles (coleoptera, carabidae) of the Ola Plateau highlands,
           Kolyma Uplands
    • Abstract: Abstract The ground beetle fauna was studied in 12 biotopes of the tundra belt on Ola Plateau, 130 km NW of Magadan. In all, 16 species were found above timber line (900–1220 m), which is comparable with the diversity in the mountain tundras of the upper reaches of the Kolyma (Berman et al., 1984; Bukhkalo, 1997), but the faunistic similarity of these regions is low (Jaccard’s coefficient 22–29%). Besides the widespread species, a group of ground beetles with limited ranges is present; it includes Carabus kolymensis Lafer, 1989 occurring in the East Siberian mountain tundras, the Siberian-Nearctic, mainly arctic Pterostichus agonus G. Horn, 1880, and the East Siberian Pterostichus eximius A. Mor., 1862. The use of the term “arctic species” in arealogical and ecological studies is discussed.

  • Stable and variable parameters in courtship songs of grasshoppers of the
           subfamily Gomphocerinae (Orthoptera, Acrididae)
    • Abstract: Abstract The courtship behavior of seven grasshopper species of the subfamily Gomphocerinae from different localities of Russia, Ukraine and Greece was described. Not only the sounds but also the corresponding stridulatory movements of the hind legs and visual display accompanying the courtship song were analyzed. Comparison of the degree of variation in different courtship parameters showed that the most stable traits were the syllable and pulse periods. The potential role of stable and variable traits in the grasshopper courtship songs is discussed.

  • Zonal distribution of bumblebee species (hymenoptera, apidae) in the North
           of European Russia
    • Abstract: Abstract The bumblebee fauna of the North of European Russia includes 34 species. The trends in bumblebee diversity within the region are characterized. The species richness is the greatest in the middle taiga subzone and decreases from south to north, reaching its minimum in the Arctic tundra. Based on analysis of the zonal differentiation of bumblebee species, only four of them were found to be true arctic forms: Bombus (Alpinobombus) polaris, B. (Al.) balteatus, B. (Al.) hyperboreus, and B. (Pr.) lapponicus glacialis, whereas the rest belong to the temperate, boreal, and subboreal groups.

  • A new oribatid mite species of the genus        class="a-plus-plus">Protoribates (Acari,
           Oribatida, Haplozetidae) from Ethiopia
    • Abstract: Abstract A new oribatid mite species, Protoribates aethiopicus sp. n., from Ethiopia is described. This species is morphologically similar to Protoribates dentatus (Berlese, 1883), but differs from it in the longer lamellae and notogastral setae, shorter adanal setae ad 1 and smaller notogastral porous areas, as well as in the presence of two claws on all legs.

    • Abstract: Abstract The mosquitoes attacking humans in hotel rooms on the Kos Island (Greece) were identified by means of several molecular markers and proved to be hybrids of Culex pipiens and C. quinquefasciatus. The former species is a typical local inhabitant, whereas the latter was probably introduced with some transport from a more southern region. The mosquitoes were anthropophilic, and their bites induced strong lasting allergic dermal reaction.

  • Specific features of coleoptera habitation in the Trans-Altai Gobi Desert,
    • Abstract: Abstract Water streams in the temporary water beds after heavy showers in the extra-arid Mongolian Trans-Altai Gobi Desert kill many coleopterans especially those with the larvae feeding on and in roots in the soil or in the stem/root base. Another impact of the flooding of desert habitats is the development of fungal infections in the stem- or root-mining larvae and adults. In the areas with often draughts, soil-dwelling larvae of cleonines can remain inactive in the air-dry soil for at least 1.5 years and immediately pupate after rainfall which evidently has a function of the signal for completion of premature development. In the desert landscape with low diversity and population densities of insectivorous birds, reptiles, and mammals, rodents (jerboas) may be the main predators of the root-feeding beetle larvae, digging them out of the soil or taking them off the stem base.

  • Nesting and biology of        class="a-plus-plus">Jucancistrocerus caspicus
           (hymenoptera, vespidae, eumeninae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Females of Jucancistrocerus caspicus nest in dense clay ground on the vertical surface of cliffs. The nests contain 1–9 cells (on average 2.8) and have a linear-branched construction. Females surmount the entrance of the burrow with a curved chimney which has a laced structure. The cells are positioned vertically in the main burrow and obliquely or horizontally in the lateral tunnels; the cells in a row are separated with double partitions. The size of the cells is 7–9 × 4–4.5 mm, the diameter of the nest burrow is 4 mm. The egg is laid before provisioning and is attached to the cell ceiling with a filament. Females hunt for weevil larvae and store 23–33 larvae (on average 27.8) in each cell. The species is univoltine, with prepupae hibernating in their cocoons. The nests are parasitized by the cuckoo wasps Chrysis rutilans which cause 11.5% of brood mortality. Adult wasps are killed by the spiders Pholcus sp. living near the nests.

  • Design of molecular markers for identification of species of the genus
           Chironomus (Diptera,
    • Abstract: Abstract Accurate identification and differentiation of species of the genus Chironomus based on their morphological features is a difficult problem. Unambiguous species identification by means of molecular markers is possible at any stage of the life cycle. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with species-specific primers was used to develop molecular markers (amplicons) for identification of Chironomus piger, Ch. dorsalis, and Ch. pseudothummi. Nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) of the locus coding for ribosomal RNA were used to design species-specific primers for these target species. Each of the species-specific primer pairs yielded species-specific amplicons (molecular markers) only with the DNA of target species: Ch. piger, Ch. dorsalis, and Ch. pseudothummi. Test PCRs with the DNA of eighteen Chironomus species confirmed the specificity of the primers obtained. The molecular markers produced in PCR with the designed species-specific primers permit reliable identification of Ch. piger, Ch. dorsalis, and Ch. pseudothummi and their differentiation from other species of the genus Chironomus.

  • Reproduction of the Indian Meal Moth (       class="a-plus-plus">Plodia interpunctella,
           lepidoptera, pyralidae): Mating success, polygyny, polyandry
    • Abstract: Abstract The mating success of Plodia interpunctella was studied under the artificial conditions of polygyny and monoandry. More than 40% of the fecund females were fertilized without the actual transfer of a spermatophore. About 45% of the females did not lay eggs. Cases of complete sterility or low fertility of the females were recorded even in the cases when the spermatophore was transferred. On the whole, 70% of the matings were unsuccessful under the experimental conditions. It is suggested that incompatibility of mates is a very important factor in reproduction of P. interpunctella which increases the significance of polyandry and polygyny as mechanisms of increasing the number of males participating in reproduction.

  • Mass reproductive wanderings of dragonflies of the genus        class="a-plus-plus">Sympetrum (Odonata,
    • Abstract: Abstract The results of observing mass flights of some dragonflies of the genus Sympetrum forming tandems are presented. These tandems always fly against the wind, some of them landing for oviposition and then joining the flight again. This variant of migration behavior has been unexplained until now. A hypothesis is proposed according to which synchronous mass flights of dragonfly tandems facilitate the most uniform oviposition in all the suitable biotopes. The general direction of the flight depends on the wind. As the wind direction changes, the flight course of the tandems changes accordingly, so that the dragonflies cross the same territory several times, which leads to a denser and more uniform distribution of eggs. It is proposed to refer to this variant of flight as reproductive wanderings. Such a dispersal strategy can maintain the most uniform population density and a more stable abundance of some dragonfly species in the territories with unstable humidity.

  • Geometrid moths of the genus        class="a-plus-plus">Eupithecia Curtis, 1825
           (Lepidoptera, Geometridae): Prerequisites and characteristic features of
           high species diversity
    • Abstract: Abstract The prerequisites and characteristics of high species diversity of the genus Eupithecia (Geometridae), the largest in the order Lepidoptera, are discussed. The surge of speciation in this genus was facilitated by the evolutionarily advanced morpho-functional characters of the adults and larvae, as well as by the plasticity of a number of morphological structures, especially those of the genitalia in both sexes, in the ancestral Eupithecia. The wide range of flowering plants has served as a basis for close associations of the larvae predominantly with generative plant organs and for broad adaptive radiation of Eupithecia into a variety of ecological niches in the areas lacking their competitors from other genera of the tribe Eupitheciini. Transition of the larvae of some Eupithecia to facultative or obligate ambush predation was facilitated by adaptation of the antho- and carpophagous species to high-calorie food rich in proteins, lipids, and carbohydrates. Based on the distribution of the genus Eupithecia and its most morphologically primitive species-groups, its East Asian origin is hypothesized. It is noted that many of the largest genera of animals and plants include relatively small-sized species.

  • The zoogeographic composition of the insect fauna (Odonata, Coleoptera,
           Macrolepidoptera) in the raised bogs of the Belarusian Lakeland
    • Abstract: Abstract The zoogeographic composition of insects in the raised bogs of the Belarusian Lakeland was investigated. The boundaries of this region coincide with those of the last glaciation and the distribution of raised bogs on the East European Plain. By the example of three model groups (Odonata, Coleoptera, and Macrolepidoptera) it was found that the insect fauna complexes in the bogs of the Belarusian Lakeland had a typical boreal pattern with prevalence of species with Euro-Siberian ranges, and also included large fractions of species with Circumboreal and Circum-Arctoboreal ranges. The environmental conditions of bogs in the temperate zone of Europe facilitate the southward expansion of many cold-adapted species.

  • Altitudinal variation of the life cycle of        class="a-plus-plus">Poecilus fortipes (Coleoptera,
           Carabidae) in Eastern Siberia
    • Abstract: Abstract Altitudinal variation of the demographic structure of populations of Poecilus fortipes (Chaud.) was studied in four mountain localities in the south of Eastern Siberia, and the life cycle of the species was reconstructed for each locality. The size of adults of both sexes decreased along the altitudinal gradient: the beetles from the Selenga middle mountains (600–650 m above sea level) were much larger, while those at the upper boundary of the forest-steppe belt in the Eastern Sayan (1500–1700 m asl) were smaller than others. Their linear dimensions decreased more distinctly in the transitional zone between middle and high mountains. The duration of the reproductive period did not depend on the altitude. However, the onset of oviposition shifted along the altitudinal gradient to the beginning of the vegetation season, due to its shortening and a decrease in the sum of effective temperatures. As the altitude increased, the mean number of eggs per female declined significantly from 15.9 ± 6.1 to 8.6 ± 5.8, whereas the maximum number of eggs increased from 26–28 to 40–43. On the contrary, the dates of emergence shifted gradually from the beginning and middle of the vegetation period to its middle and end. Populations from the Selenga middle mountains, the Vitim Plateau, and the lower margin of the forest-steppe belt in the Eastern Sayan mountains were characterized by a relatively low catch index and the absence of rebreeding old individuals, both these features increasing the risk of spontaneous local extinction. The annual life cycle with summer breeding was replaced along the altitudinal gradient with an obligate biennial life cycle with summer and early-summer breeding. This transition was observed as the altitude increased from 600–650 to 900–950 m asl while the sum of effective temperatures dropped below 1400°C, i.e., the value needed for implementation of the annual life cycle.

  • Landscape and zonal distribution of bloodsucking mosquitoes and horseflies
           (Diptera: Culicidae, Tabanidae) in the northeastern Russian Plain
    • Abstract: Abstract Analysis of landscape and zonal changes in the species diversity and abundance of 34 species of bloodsucking mosquitoes and 42 species of horseflies in the northeastern Russian Plain was carried out. The species diversity of both families is reduced from south to north. Two steps of faunistic depletion can be revealed: at the boundary of the middle and northern taiga (both mosquitoes and horseflies) and at the boundary of the extreme northern taiga and the forest-tundra (horseflies only). Species whose northern and southern distribution boundaries lie within the territory studied are listed.
