  • New data on the fauna, taxonomy and ecology of praying mantises
           (Dictyoptera, Mantodea) from Russia
    • Abstract: Abstract Two little-known species of praying mantises, Severinia turcomaniae (Saussure, 1872) and Rivetina nana Mistshenko, 1967, are reported for the faunas of Russia and Europe for the first time based on the material collected in Astrakhan Province of Russia. New data on the morphology, ecology, and distribution of these species are given. The male genitalia of S. turcomaniae and the female of R. nana are described for the first time. The lectotype of Oxythespis turcomaniae Saussure, 1872 is designated and deposited in the collection of the Zoological Museum of the Moscow University. The synonymy of O. turcomaniae and Mantis wagneri Kittary, 1849 is shown to be insufficiently justified; M. wagneri is provisionally placed in the genus Severinia Finot, 1902. Since R. nana Lindt, 1968 is most probably not a synonym of R. nana Mistshenko, 1967 but a separate species, a substitute name R. pseudonana Shcherbakov nom. n. is proposed for the former. Some characters traditionally used for the identification of Rivetina species are shown to be significantly variable and thus unreliable. A key to 11 praying mantis species of the Russian fauna is provided. The recent discovery of S. turcomaniae and R. nana in the northern Caspian Sea region is assumed to reflect the expansion of the natural ranges of thermophilic species caused by increasing aridity of the climate.

  • Courtship song analysis in two hybrid zones between sibling species of the
           Chorthippus albomarginatus group (Orthoptera, Gomphocerinae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Two new hybrid zones between sibling species of the Chorthippus albomarginatus group were described on the basis of the courtship song analysis. Not only the sounds emitted but also the accompanying stridulatory movements of the hind legs were analyzed, which allowed the temporal parameters to be classified in a more reliable way. One hybrid zone between Ch. albomarginatus and Ch. karelini was found in Ulyanovsk and Samara Provinces of Russia. The other hybrid zone, presumably between Ch. karelini and Ch. oschei, was found in the protected Askania-Nova steppe area in Kherson Province of Ukraine. Based on comparison of the natural and laboratory hybrids, a hypothesis on the structure and dynamics of the hybrid zones is proposed.

  • Contribution to the knowledge of the weevil genus Otiorhynchus Germ.
           (Coleoptera, Curculionidae) from Turkmenistan and adjacent territories
    • Abstract: Abstract Data on 15 species of the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus Magnano, 2004 of the genus Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Iran are given. Otiorhynchus lukarevskayae Davidian, sp. n., O. karakalensis Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n., O. konstantini Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n., O. muratovi Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n., O. kopetdagicus Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n., and O. shakhensis Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n. from Turkmenistan, and O. khorasanus Savitsky et Davidian, sp. n. from Iran are described as new to science. A new synonymy is established: Pseudotiorhynchus Magnano, 2004 = Crassorhynchus Magnano, 2004, syn. n. Otiorhynchus iranensis Magnano, 2004 is transferred from the subgenus Protarammichnus Voss, 1960 to the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus. Lectotype of O. conicirostris Stierlin, 1886 is designated. A key to 15 species of the subgenus Pseudotiorhynchus is given. The new subgenus Microhanibotus Savitsky et Davidian, subgen. n. is established for the new species O. ghilarovi Davidian et Savitsky, sp. n. from the Western Kopet Dagh in Turkmenistan. Microhanibotus subgen. n. is closely related to the subgenera Pseudotiorhynchus, Hanibotus Reitter, 1912 and Nubidanus Reitter, 1912.

  • The beet webworm Loxostege sticticalis L. (Lepidoptera, Crambidae) in the
           focus of agricultural entomology objectives: I. The periodicity of pest
    • Abstract: Abstract Analysis of the published data on the population dynamics of the beet webworm Loxostege sticticalis L., including its relation to solar activity, was made. The official statistical data from Russia and China testify to asynchronous outbreaks of the webworm in these countries, which suggests the existence of at least two population systems within the species range, the Euro-Siberian (Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan) and Central Asian (China and Mongolia) ones, geographically isolated by mountain systems (Tien Shan, Pamir, Altai, and the Sayan mountains) and deserts and bridged by the narrow East Siberian corridor. The theoretical and applied aspects of this conclusion are discussed, including the necessity for further studying of the population dynamics of this dangerous pest.

  • Variations in the tendency to diapause among successive generations of
           laboratory strains of Trichogramma species (Hymenoptera,
           Trichogrammatidae): Endogenous or exogenous'
    • Abstract: Abstract Variations in the tendency to diapause among successive generations of laboratory strains reared under constant conditions were reported for many insects and mites. However, as far as we know, the relative importance of the endogenous and exogenous components of this variability has not been investigated experimentally. We have conducted such a study with 12 successive generations of laboratory strains of Trichogramma telengai Sor. and T. principium Sug. et Sor. In total, 12 strains originated from different females and / or reared under different photothermal conditions (temperature of 20 and 25°C and day length of 12 and 18 h) were investigated. The tendency to diapause was estimated by the proportion of the progeny diapausing at temperatures of 13, 14 and 15°C. Although the variations in the tendency to diapause in sequential generations of different strains of the same species were positively correlated, the correlation between different species was also very strong suggesting that endogenous (species-specific) factors are not the main reason for the observed changes. The data for different photothermal conditions of incubation of the studied strains and of their progeny were also correlated suggesting that occasional changes in temperature or day length are not the reason of the changes in the proportion of diapausing progeny. Evidently, the differences in the tendency to diapause among generations of the studied Trichogramma species were mainly caused by some uncontrolled environmental factors. This in no way excludes the possible role of the endogenous processes, but suggests the necessity for a critical analysis of the available data on the “spontaneous” dynamics in the tendency to diapause among successive generations of the laboratory strains of insects and mites.

  • Molecular genetic analysis of the suprageneric system of casebearer moths,
           with a description of a new genus from the tribe Carpochenini
           Cǎpuşe, 1973 (Lepidoptera, Coleophoridae)
    • Abstract: Abstract Based on a complex approach including morphological and molecular genetic methods, the taxonomic position of two casebearer moth species Coleophora tsherkesi Falkovitsh, 1970 and C. isabellina Falkovitsh, 1970 (Lepidoptera, Coleophoridae) is discussed. On the phylogenetic tree based on the cytochrome oxidase subunit I gene (COI), two species form a common cluster with species of the genera Ionescumia, Carpochena, and Goniodoma. Data on the molecular phylogeny and morphology justify the placement of Coleophora tsherkesi and C. isabellina in a separate genus Falkmisa Anikin et Dyomin, gen. n. Thus, the tribe Carpochenini includes three genera: Ionescumia, Carpochena, and Falkmisa.

  • A new genus of Dictyopharidae (Homoptera) from Chile
    • Abstract: Abstract Chondrophana gen. n. with the type species Cixius gayi Spinola, 1852 (= Chondrodera chilensis Melichar, 1912, syn. n.) is described from Chile. The new genus differs from Chondrodera Melichar in a short head, fully developed intermedial carinae on the metope (clearly not reaching the clypeus in Chondrodera), in the presence of granules on the humeral and pectoral areas of the prothorax and also on the lateral lobes of the metope from the apical callus to the clypeus (in Ch. granicollis, granules and also the intermedial carinae in the lower half of the metope are absent), in multidentate apices of the 1st and 2nd segment of the hind tarsus, in a petiolate ScRM, and in the pterostigma closing the anteroradial area.

  • Fleas (Siphonaptera) associated with mammals in the mountain area between
           the Kuban and Bolshaya Laba Rivers
    • Abstract: Abstract The flea fauna of mammals in the area between the Kuban and Bolshaya Laba Rivers counts 47 species. Most of them parasitize several hosts. The species composition and the structure of flea communities in different altitudinal belts are characterized. The flea Ctenophthalmus wagneri and some other flea species with Ancient Mediterranean ranges show the highest dominance indices in the foothills. Ctenophthalmus proximus and Leptopsylla taschenbergi, possessing ranges of the Caucasian type, prevail in the middle mountain belt. Megabothris turbidus and some other boreal species dominate among the species collected in the high mountain belt.

  • On the distribution dynamics of some beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae,
           Bruchidae, Curculionidae) in the plains of the Northwestern Caucasus,
    • Abstract: Abstract At the beginning of the XXI century, several species of the coleopterous families Coccinellidae, Bruchidae and Curculionidae were recorded as new to the Northwestern Caucasus (Krasnodar and Stavropol territories and the Republic of Adygea). Some of them apparently have been unintentionally introduced from the distant (the East Asian bruchid Megabruchidius tonkineus Pic, 1914) or neighboring (the Western Mediterranean weevil Otiorhynchus aurifer Boheman, 1843) regions, while two species of weevils, Sternuchopsis karelini Boheman, 1844 and Orchestes mutabilis Boheman, 1843, may have expanded westward their central or eastern Palaearctic ranges. The weevil, Otiorhynchus ovalipennis Boheman, 1843 has expanded its distribution from the Black Sea coast in Krasnodar Territory northward to the vicinity of Krasnodar in Adygea. The Harlequin lady beetle Harmonia axyridis (Pall.) was for the first time found in the plain part of Anapa and Kavkazskii districts in 2012 and 2013.

  • Musculature of the male genitalia in the tribe Ulidiini (Diptera,
    • Abstract: Abstract The musculature of the male genitalia was studied in three species of Ulidiini (Tephritoidea: Ulidiidae): Timia erythrocephala Wiedemann, 1824, Ulidia ruficeps Becker, 1913, and Physiphora alceae (Preyssler, 1791). Previously, the male genital sclerites of this tribe were studied (Galinskaya, 2011a, 2011b, 2012, 2014). The study has shown significant similarity of the set of muscles between the species. Small differences in the sites of muscle insertion on the sclerites do not affect the functions of these muscles. The lateral hypandrial lobes are always asymmetrical in all the species studied, the right lobe being always larger than the left one. This probably results from the postabdomen rotation and may be indirectly related to flight maneuverability during copulation. Clear separation of the attachment sites of the adductor of subepandrial sclerite M3 and the adductor of surstyli M4 is noteworthy. These muscles are synergistic, as in most other representatives of Cyclorrhapha widely varying in the structure of the surstyli and subepandrial sclerite and in the attachment of M3 and M4; their contraction results in the surstyli grasping and holding the female’s abdomen during copulation. Comparative analysis shows that all the studied representatives of Tephritoidea have a similar set of the male genital muscles. The correspondence of homologous muscle designations in different classifications has been analyzed. In particular, the phallapodemic muscle M2 in Ulidiidae is shown to be homologous to muscle MUS2 in Ceratitis capitata (Tephritidae). Thus, the hypandrial origin of the lateral sclerites is confirmed.

  • The position of the family pantophthalmidae in the classification of the
           orthorrhaphous Brachycera (Diptera) based on larval characters
    • Abstract: Abstract The larval morphology of Pantophthalmidae, a peculiar family of xylobiont flies distributed in the Neotropical Region, is studied. The larva supposedly belonging to the genus Opetiops End. is described and compared with the known larvae of Pantophthalmus Thunb. In the larval characters, the family is closest to Stratiomyidae and Xylomyidae. Adaptations to habitation inside wood have resulted in the closeness of the larval general appearance to the representatives of Temnostoma Le Pel. et Serv. (Syrphidae).

    • Abstract: Abstract Three species of the genus Argiope are redescribed based on new material from Russia and Central Asia: the cosmopolitan A. bruennichi (Scopoli, 1772), the Trans-Palaearctic A. lobata (Pallas, 1772), and the Central Asian A. ahngeri Spassky, 1932). The male of A. ahngeri is described for the first time. A new key to the Russian and Central Asian species of the genus Argiope using several additional taxonomic characters is provided.
