  • Individual variability in the parameters of growth and development in
           invasive and autochthonous populations of Harmonia axyridis (Pallas)
           (Coleoptera, Coccinellidae)
    • Abstract: Laboratory experiments showed that under the same constant conditions individual variability in several important parameters of the life cycle: the rate of preimaginal development, size and weight of emerging adults (largely determining the potential fecundity of females), and the rate of reproductive maturation (indirectly representing the tendency for reproductive diapause) in individuals from the laboratory strains which originated from European and Caucasian invasive populations of the predatory ladybird Harmonia axyridis is significantly higher than those in individuals from the strains which originated from autochthonous East Asian populations of the same species. This phenomenon is possibly based on high genetic diversity of the invasive populations resulting from numerous introductions and / or hybridization with individuals from laboratory strains using for biological control of pests. The high individual variability was probably one of the prerequisites for the invasion.

  • Influence of photoperiod on development and maturation of Macrolophus
           pygmaeus (Hemiptera, Miridae)
    • Abstract: The effects of day length on development and reproductive maturation of zoophytophagous bug Macrolophus pygmaeus (= M. nubilis) were investigated under laboratory conditions using two strains originated from the environs of Rome, Italy (41.75°N, 12.30°E and 41.95°N., 12.80°E) and Sochi, Krasnodar Territory, Russia (43.9°N, 39.3°E). The insects were kept under day length of either 10 or 16 h at a constant temperature of 20°C. Nymphs and adults were fed on the grain moth eggs. Embryonic development lasted 18–20 days, nymphal development, 25–30 days, and reproductive maturation of females, 4–6 days. The short day length (10 h) resulted in 1–2-day prolongation of nymphal development and a longer maturation time in individuals from both strains, whereas the duration of embryo development was independent of photoperiod. Under both photoperiods, males developed faster than females. Under the short day length, females of the Rome strain matured markedly faster than those of the Sochi strain. Faster development under low temperature and stronger tendency to delay the reproductive maturation observed in the Sochi strain could be explained by a relatively fast (when compared with Rome) autumnal decrease in temperature. The mechanism and adaptive value of the long-day acceleration of development are not yet clear.

  • Pectapalochrus gen. n., a new genus of soft-winged flower beetles of the
           tribe apalochrini (Coleoptera, Malachiidae)
    • Abstract: Analysis of species of Dromanthomorphus Pic from South-East Asia has shown that the genus is distinguished by the following special male characters: flabellate, serrate, or filiform antennae; one-colored white pubescence of the surface; a swollen metathorax with a gladiate appendage; stout and excavate fore and middle tibiae; elongate and modified fore and middle coxae; apical tergites with a specific slanting and tile-like sculpture at the apex; apical abdominal sternites bilaciniate, with specifically sculptured apices. These characters are completely lacking in the Palaearctic species attributed to Dromanthomorphus, which are characterized by flabellate or serrate antennae, by a simple, not swollen metathorax lacking appendages, double white and black pubescence of the surface, simple, evenly rounded apical abdominal tergites, and evenly narrowed apical abdominal sternites emarginate in the middle and having simple, not sculptured apices. Based on these differences, a new genus, Pectapalochrus gen. n., is described for the Palaearctic species. Keys to Pectapalochrus species and to genera of Apalochrini of Eurasia and also illustrations of the habitus and male structures of the new genus are given.

  • Description of a new soldier-fly species of the genus Adoxomyia
           Kertész, 1907 (Diptera, Stratiomyidae), based on adults and larva
           from Azerbaijan
    • Abstract: A new species of the soldier-fly genus Adoxomyia Kertesz, 1907, A. variabilis sp. n., is described from Azerbaijan. The larvae were found in the Astragalus roots damaged by larvae of the buprestid genus Sphenoptera. The adults (males and females) are proved to belong to a species closely related to A. transcaucasica Nartshuk, 2004 but differing in the structure and coloration of the antennae, in the pubescence of the eye of the female, in details of the pubescence of the head in the male, and in the structure of the male genitalia. Differences of the adults and the larva from those of the closely related species are listed.

  • Effect of methyl salicylate on behavioral responses of insects in a forest
    • Abstract: Attractiveness of methyl salicylate to arthropods in natural populations was studied in a park reserve. During the observation period, representatives of several families of Diptera (the leaf-mining Agromyzidae, the predatory Hybotidae, Dolichopodidae and Empididae), parasitic micro-Hymenoptera (Mymaridae, Pteromalidae, Eulophidae, and Aphelinidae), and phytophagous bugs (Heteroptera) were recorded. Significant attractiveness of methyl salicylate to parasitic micro-Hymenoptera and dance flies (Empididae) was demonstrated. Our data confirm the possibility of attracting beneficial arthropods with methyl salicylate.

  • Seasonal development of the blowfly Caliphora vicina R.-D. (Diptera,
           Calliphoridae) in the environs of St. Petersburg
    • Abstract: Four-year monitoring of phenology of the blowfly Caliphora vicina under quasi-natural conditions in the environs of St. Petersburg demonstrated development of two complete generations and overwintering of the third generation. The duration of preimaginal development (from egg laying to adult emergence) of the 1st and 2nd generations varied from 19 to 32 days; the required sum of effective temperatures (SET) was 326 ± 31 degree-days with a threshold of 5°С. Reproductive maturation of females (the period of time from adult emergence to laying of the first eggs) lasted from 15 to 31 days (SET was 262 ± 39 degree-days with a threshold of 5°С). The duration of development of one complete generation (from egg stage to the beginning of oviposition) during the period of observation varied from 34 to 57 days (SET was about 600 degree-days with a threshold of 5°С). The first diapausing larvae hatched from the eggs laid in the middle of August. In September, at shorter day lengths and at a temperature of 10–11°С, 80–100% of the larvae entered diapause. A small fraction of the larvae of the 1st and 2nd generation and most of the larvae of the 3rd generation overwintered. Successful overwintering of adults in the environs of St. Petersburg is hardly possible.

  • Notes on the phylogenetic relationships of planthoppers of the family
           issidae (Hemiptera, Fulgoroidea) of the Western Palaearctic fauna, with
           descriptions of two new genera
    • Abstract: Seven groups of genera are distinguished in the subtribe Issina Spinola. The new genera Apedalmus gen. n. (the type species Falcidius abruzicus Dlabola, 1983) and Thalassana gen. n. (the type species: Hysteropterum ephialtes Linnavuori, 1971) are erected. The subgenera Acrestia Dlabola, 1980, Montissus Gnezdilov, 2003, and Atticus Gnezdilov, 2003 are upgraded to genera. The subgenus Capititudes Gnezdilov, Drosopoulos et Wilson, 2004 is transferred to the genus Acrestia, and the subgenus Stygiata Emeljanov, 1972 to Celyphoma Emeljanov, 1971. The subtribe Agalmatiina Gnezdilov, 2002 and the subfamily Hysteropterinae Melichar, 1906 are placed in synonymy under Issina Spinola, 1839. Issus reticulatus Herrich-Schäffer, 1835 is designated as the type species of the genus Hysteropterum Amyot et Serville, 1843.

  • Trophic associations and specialization of phytophagous beetles
           (Coleoptera: Chrysomeloidea, Curculionoidea) in the east of the Russian
    • Abstract: Data on the trophic associations of beetles with plants in the east of the Russian Plain are summarized and comparative analysis of host specialization of different groups of phytophagous beetles is performed. In terms of the width of the regional trophic spectrum, monophages and narrow oligophages prevail among the Curculionoidea as a whole and in the families Curculionidae and Apionidae in particular, while moderate and broad oligophages prevail in the Chrysomeloidea and in the family Chrysomelidae. Two-thirds of the regional fauna (66%) of Curculionoidea are closely associated with plants of one genus; by contrast, in Chrysomeloidea almost 40% of the species can develop on plants from different genera of one family, the fraction of the narrowly specialized forms comprising only 43%. The higher level of trophic specialization of weevils (Curculionidae, Apionidae) and seed beetles (Bruchidae), as compared to leaf beetles (Chrysomelidae), is probably due to the larval endophagy of most species of these families. Analysis of the distribution of beetles over host plants has shown that the specialized forms are associated with plants of 65 families (about 60% of the regional flora in the east of the Russian Plain). Distribution of beetles over plant families is very non-uniform. Most of the specialized forms (78%) are associated with plants of 15 families, three of which (Asteraceae, Fabaceae, and Brassicaceae) include hosts of more than onethird of the beetle species (37%). Monophages and narrow oligophages are recorded on 201 genera of plants from 59 families. Polyphagous species are recorded on plants of 58 families. The specific features of the distribution of phytophagous beetles over host plants (as compared to other insects) is a high fraction of species developing on coenophobes (particularly those of the family Brassicaceae) typical of the pioneer stages of successions with sparse herbaceous cover, and a small number of species associated with grasses and sedges. These features are most conspicuous in the fauna of Curculionidae.

  • Is it possible to distinguish alien species of beetles (Coleoptera) from
           native ones?
    • Abstract: Species established outside their native ranges are termed alien. Biological invasions of beetles are poorly studied. Distinguishing between alien and native species is necessary for conservation as well as for taxonomic, zoogeographic, and evolutionary studies. It constitutes a difficult problem, but the experience of botany and some branches of zoology gives reasons to believe that it is not unsolvable. The following criteria for distinguishing alien beetle species from native ones are proposed based on the criteria developed for plants, algae, mammals, and marine invertebrates: (1) detection of an established population of the species which has not been recorded earlier in the region; (2) disjunction of the range which cannot be explained by disjunction of suitable landscapes or host plant ranges; (3) expansion of a part of the range isolated from its main part; (4) highly localized distribution in an area adjacent to a known invasion pathway; (5) establishment in other regions; (6) dependency on another non-native species (feeding on an alien host plant or animal); (7) absence of specific parasites in the given region and their presence in some other region; (8) association with anthropogenic biotopes; (9) sharp fluctuations of abundance; (10) lack of taxonomically close species in the given region and their presence in other regions; (11) detection in the region of two or more taxonomically and/or ecologically close species typical of another region; (12) presence of known vectors of invasion; (13) low genetic diversity; (14) reproduction by parthenogenesis or inbreeding. These criteria are mere indirect evidences of the alien status of a species in the given territory, because numerous exceptions exist. Usually it is impossible to recognize an alien species by a single criterion, but matching several criteria characterizes the species as an alien one with high probability.

  • On oviposition in weevils of the genus Larinus Dej. (Coleoptera,
    • Abstract: The following actions performed by females of several Larinus Dej. species during egg laying are described: search of an appropriate place on the plant, making the hole for the egg, oviposition proper, and sealing the hole. The hole preparation takes the longest time and the greatest effort. Only one individual usually completes development in one flower head. Females of Larinus vulpes Ol. prefer larger flower heads for oviposition and occasionally lay eggs into stems. The ability of females to distinguish the flower heads with already laid eggs is discussed. Species of Larinus may be divided into two groups with “early” and “late” oviposition. The evolution of egg laying in the genus Larinus is discussed.

  • Phylogeny and taxonomy of casebearer moths (Lepidoptera, Coleophoridae)
           based on morphological and molecular genetic data. 2. Reconstruction of
           divergence time for major taxa of Coleophoridae based on COI gene
    • Abstract: Reconstruction of divergence time for major taxa of the family Coleophoridae showed casebearer moths to be evolutionarily young, probably due to the formation of the first taxa of the family in a specific environment of grassland ecosystems during the Eocene–Oligocene. Analysis of evolutionary divergence of species indicated that the ancestors of modern taxa of the subfamily Coleophorinae lived in the early Oligocene and were probably associated with herbaceous plants of the families Amaranthaceae, Fabaceae, and Asteraceae. In general, the most active speciation among casebearer moths occurred in the late Miocene, possibly due to the increasing diversity of habitats and active changes of woody and herbaceous plant formations in the Ancient Mediterranean during that historical period.

  • Colony productivity of Polistes dominula (Christ) (Hymenoptera, Vespidae:
    • Abstract: The paper presents the results of analysis of the relationships of various colony characteristics in the resocial wasp Polistes dominula nesting on plants in the south of Ukraine (Kherson Province, the Black Sea Biosphere Reserve) in 2003–2007. The number of future foundresses and nest size at the end of the life cycle depend on the queen longevity and on the number of workers in the colony. The number of males reared in the colony is positively correlated with the nest size (the number of cells) and negatively correlated with the queen longevity. An increase in the share of the brood infested by the parasitoids Latibulus argiolus (Hymenoptera, Ichneumonidae) and Elasmus schmitti (Hymenoptera, Eulophidae) results in a smaller nest size and a smaller number of males reared.

  • Long-term dynamics of the species composition of herpetobiont and
           hortobiont beetles (Coleoptera) in the Galichya Gora Nature Reserve
    • Abstract: A long-term study of the species composition of adult beetles (Coleoptera) was performed in the Morozova Gora locality (the Galichya Gora Nature Reserve, Lipetsk Province, Russia). From 1995 to 2005, a total of 23 683 ind. of 545 species from 57 families were captured in the migration trap, i.e., a system of 10 pitfall traps connected by guide barriers. Net-sweeping of the herbage in the steppe, oak grove, and meadow yielded 9048 ind. of 383 species from 33 families. The species composition of herpetobiont beetles was shown to change gradually in time, while that of inhabitants of the herbage layer changed sharply from year to year. The abundance dynamics patterns varied greatly between species and habitats.
