  • New herpetological records from Cozia National Park and its surrounding
           areas (Vâlcea County, Romania)

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(2): 221-233
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e47321
      Authors : Alexandru Iftime, Oana Iftime : The results of faunistic surveys upon the amphibian and reptile populations in the Cozia National Park are presented. We recorded (found) 11 amphibian species (including the hybridogenetic Pelophylax kl. esculentus) and 12 reptile species; some species (Bufotes viridis and Emys orbicularis) were found after a long lapse in scientific recording. We observe that the Cozia Massif appears to have a richer herpetofauna than that of the adjoining Narâțu and Căpățânii massifs. HTML PDF

  • Diversity and distribution of Orthoptera communities of two adjacent
           mountains in northern part of the Carpathians

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(2): 191-211
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e48604
      Authors : Anton Krištín, Benjamín Jarčuška, Peter Kaňuch : During 2013–2017, assemblages of bush-crickets and grasshoppers were surveyed in two neighbouring flysch mountains – Čergov Mts (48 sites) and Levočské vrchy Mts (62 sites) – in northern part of Western Carpathians. Species were sampled mostly at grasslands and forest edges along elevational gradient between 370 and 1220 m a.s.l. Within the entire area (ca 930 km2) we documented 54 species, representing 38% of Carpathian Orthoptera species richness. We found the same species number (45) in both mountain ranges with nine unique species in each of them. No difference in mean species richness per site was found between the mountain ranges (mean ± SD = 12.5 ± 3.9). Elevation explained 2.9% of variation in site species richness. Elevation and mountain range identity explained 7.3% of assemblages composition. We found new latitudinal as well as longitudinal limits in the distribution for several species. Occurrence and distributional patterns of some noteworthy species (Isophya stysi, Pholidoptera transsylvanica, Poecilimon schmidtii, Polysarcus denticauda, Pseudopodisma nagyi, Chorthippus tatrae), as well as habitat specialists (Chorthippus pullus, Tetrix tuerki) are discussed.

  • Wild Pacific oyster Magallana gigas (Thunberg, 1793) populations in
           Romanian Black Sea waters – friend or foe'

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(2): 175-183
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e49074
      Authors : Ana-Maria Krapal, Marin Ioniță, Mihaela Caplan, Elena Buhaciuc-Ioniță : A relatively small population of Magallana gigas was discovered near the Agigea harbor (Constanța, Romania) in 2017. The DNA barcoding method was used to confirm the morphological identification of the species. We consider this colony to be the first instance of a possibly stable Pacific oyster population in the Black Sea, outside of farming activities. The possible impact on native ecosystems is briefly discussed. HTML PDF

      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38595
      Authors : Ana-Maria Petrescu, Melania Stan, Iorgu Petrescu : A comprehensive list of the taxons dedicated to Grigore Antipa by collaborators, science personalities who appreciated his work was constituted from surveying the natural history or science museums or university collections from several countries (Romania, Germany, Australia, Israel and United States). The list consists of 33 taxons, with current nomenclature and position in a collection. Historical aspects have been discussed, in order to provide a depth to the process of collection dissapearance during more than one century of Romanian zoological research. Natural calamities, wars and the evictions of the museum’s buildings that followed, and sometimes the neglection of the collections following the decease of their founder, are the major problems that contributed gradually to the transformation of the taxon/specimen into a historical landmark and not as an accessible object of further taxonomical inquiry.

  • The avifauna of the Zigoneni dam basin (Argeş county, Romania),
           observed in 2013

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 99-124
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38594
      Authors : Adrian Mestecăneanu : Some aspects regarding the breeding of the birds from Zigoneni Basin that belongs to the protected area ROSPA0062 the Dam Basins of the Argeş River are presented in this paper. 37 species were observed here, between May and July 2013, through the point counts method, within a radius of 100 m. On one side Acrocephalus palustris, A. scirpaceus, A. arundinaceus, Alcedo atthis, Fulica atra, Oriolus oriolus and Parus major were the most frequent species and on the other side A. palustris and Fulica atra were the most abundant. At the level of the habitat mosaic of the water shore, A. palustris (0.88 p./ha), A. scirpaceus and F. atra (each with 0.32 p./ha) and A. schoenobaenus, A. arundinaceus, Phylloscopus collybita and Pica pica (each with 0.24 p./ha) had the highest estimated densities. Additionally, 14 species dependent on wetlands were observed through the itinerary method. Other considerations about the ecological indices and the efficiency of the methods were also made. HTML PDF

  • A revision of Agonopterix lacteella (Lepidoptera: Depressariidae) and
           establishing A. pallidior as a junior synonym

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 87-98
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38485
      Authors : Peter Buchner, Mihai Stănescu : Agonopterix lacteella (Caradja, 1920) was described on the basis of a single female specimen collected at Kasakewitsch, Russian Far East. Later on, A. pallidior (Stringer, 1930) was described, based on 6 specimens from Japan. Both descriptions where based only on the external appearance and published without illustrations, making subsequent accurate identification of both these species difficult. A subsequent comparison of A. lacteella holotype with the type series of A. pallidior revealed a perfect match. However, since the holotype of A. pallidior is a male whilst A. lacteella’s holotype is a female, a revision based on a direct comparison of the genitalia features of these two types is not possible. Hence, the female genitalia of A. lacteella holotype was compared with the genitalia of a female specimen identified as A. pallidior. A perfect match was found, which leaves no doubt that both taxa are conspecific. Details and consequences of this result for the systematic position of these two taxa, as well as for their relationship with other similar, cognate species are presented. In addition, new data regarding the distribution and biology of A. lacteella are presented. HTML PDF

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 81-86
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38484
      Authors : Maximilian Teodorescu, Mihai Stănescu : Eriogaster catax is a highly threatened species listed on the Annexes II and IV of the Habitats Directive and on the Annex II of the Bern Convention. In Romania, up till now, it was reported only from Banat, Crișana, Satu Mare county, Transylvania and southern Dobruja. A male attracted by a light trap installed near Olteni, Dâmbovița county, in mid-October 2018, has scored the first record of this species in Muntenia. Afterwards, larvae have been found in the same place, confirming the first, adult-based finding. HTML PDF

  • Monitoring of the saproxylic beetle Morimus asper funereus (Coleoptera:
           Cerambycidae) in Măcin Mountains National Park, Romania

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 61-79
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38591
      Authors : Minodora Manu, Raluca Ioana Băncilă, Nicolae Lotrean, Denisa Badiu, Roxana Nicoară, Marilena Onete, Florian Bodescu : During 2014 and 2015, the species Morimus asper funereus Mulsant, 1862 was monitored in the Măcin Mountains National Park, Romania using the visual transect method. The studied was focused on two topics: to determine the numerical abundance of Morimus asper funereus populations and to identify the environmental variables which influenced them. Ten abiotic factors were analysed: altitude (A), exposition (Ex.), slope (S.a), forest coverage (F.c.), air temperature (A.t.), soil temperature (S.t.), air relative humidity (A.h.), cloud-cover (Nb.), wind speed (W.s.) and wind direction (W.d.). During the study period, 112 individuals were identified. The most favourable habitats for this species were Moesian silver lime woods (91Z0) and Pannonian-Balkanic Turkey oak – sessile oak forests (91M0). The main environmental variables that influenced the beetle population dynamics were the forest coverage and wind direction. Taking into account these two parameters, we concluded that Morimus asper funereus preferred semi-shaded and semi-open habitats, characteristic of mature, old, deciduous forests within the Măcin Mountains National Park. In order to protect this species, special attention must be given to the forest management measures, e.g. protection of fallen trees, abundant coarse woody debris and a dense canopy. HTML PDF

  • The distribution and behaviour studies on a new invasive Buprestid
           species, Lamprodila festiva (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in Romania

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 43-56
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38488
      Authors : Adrian Ruicănescu, Adrian-Ilie Stoica : The Cypress Jewel Beetle (Lamprodila (Palmar) festiva subsp. festiva (Linnaeus 1767)), is a formerly rare and protected species, present in the red lists of most Western European countries. In Romania, before 2015 it was present only in the South-Western region and less than 10 specimens were collected. The species recently changed its host plants from wild Cupressaceae (Juniperus sp., Cupressus sp.) to cultivated Cupressaceae, the most affected one being Thuja occidentalis. In 2013 the first big invasion was recorded in Budapest, Hungary. In 2015, the species was found in two horticultural seedling stations in Bucharest. More recently, in 2017, it was recorded in Cluj-Napoca, and in 2018, in Timișoara, Oradea, Suceava. The article provides a short description of the adults, larva and the signs of the at-tacks on the host plants. The potential distribution of the species is discussed based on climate niche modelling. The daily behaviour of the adults and their preferences, based on observations, is also discussed. Equally, the bioethics related to this attack is analysed. HTML PDF

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 31-41
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e35197
      Authors : Andreea-Cătălina Drăghici, Adrian Ruicănescu, Gabriela Cuzepan-Bebeșelea, Cornelia Chimișliu, Cosmin-Ovidiu Manci : Morphological and molecular data indicate that two valid species exist in Europe within the two species complex, Onthophagus vacca and O. medius. The aim of our study is to check specimens from major museum collections and some personal collections from the country and to assign them to O. medius or O. vacca. We have examined 417 specimens belonging to the following collections: “Grigore Antipa’’ National Museum of Natural History Bucharest, Brukenthal National Museum-Natural History Museum, Department from Sibiu and the authors’ personal collections. We extracted elevation data for each specimen and we created distribution maps. The biogeographic distribution for Romania shows the ranges of O. vacca and O. medius overlap and they are found in all the country’s bioregions. Our study shows a high ecological plasticity in both species. Our data apparently indicate a preference for altitudes below 500 meters, possibly influenced by non-random sampling. HTML PDF

  • First record of Iris oratoria (Dictyoptera: Mantodea: Tarachodidae) in
           Romania

    • Abstract: Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle “Grigore Antipa” 62(1): 27-30
      DOI : 10.3897/travaux.62.e38596
      Authors : Alexandru Cazacu : Iris oratoria is recorded for the first time in Alba, Vrancea and Călărași counties, Romania. The presence of the species in Romania is not unexpected, as it is also present in the neighbouring countries and its tendency of migrating north is well known. HTML PDF
