Phegea 30 – 2002

Phegea 30 – nummer 1 (1 maart 2002)

De Prins W.: Interessante waarnemingen van Lepidoptera in België in 2001 (Lepidoptera).
Phegea 30(1): 1–3.
Drie nieuwe soorten Lepidoptera worden voor het eerst uit België vermeld: Phyllonorycter robiniella (Clemens, 1859), Gelechia muscosella Zeller, 1839, en Buszkoiana capnodactylus (Zeller, 1841). Verder worden verscheidene nieuwe provincie-gegevens vermeld.

De Prins J., De Prins W. & Dall'Asta U.: The karyotype of Cameraria ohridella (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae).
Phegea 30(1): 5–10.
The karyotype of Cameraria ohridella Deschka & Dimic, 1986 was established from material collected at Tervuren (Belgium, Vlaams-Brabant) in the autumn of 2000. The haploid chromosome number is n=30, which is the modal number for Gracillariidae in general. The sex determining mechanisme in C. ohridella is ZZmale - ZWfemale.

Poltavsky A. N. & Ilyina E. V.: The Noctuidae (Lepidoptera) of the Daghestan Republic (Russia).
Phegea 30(1): 11–36.
In this paper the complete list of Noctuidae currently known from Daghestan, the largest republic in the North Caucasus, is given. The list comprises 343 species and includes original data of the authors, records from the two main national collections in Russia, and some data from a few publications. Noctuidae were recorded from 37 localities in Daghestan, situated in the five natural zones of the country. The time interval of the faunistic studies spreads through the main part of the 20th Century: from 1926 to 2000.

Groenen F. & Özbek H.: Aethes margaritifera, a new species for Turkey (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae).
Phegea 30(1): 37–39.
Six specimens of Aethes margaritifera Falkovitch, 1963 were captured on light at Erzurum. The species is mentioned for the first time from Turkey.


Phegea 30 – nummer 2 (1 juni 2002)

De Vrieze M.: Interessante waarnemingen van Lepidoptera in Griekenland: Deel II.
Phegea 30(2): 41–47.
In de periode van 21 mei tot 10 juni 2001 werden nachtvlinders geobserveerd op artificieel licht in verschillende Griekse lokaliteiten: Zachlourou, Vrachni, Souvardo en het Chelmos plateau boven Kalavrita (Achaia) in de Peloponnisos en aan de voet van het Parnassos gebergte nabij Arahova (Beotia). Een lijst van de waargenomen soorten wordt voorgesteld.

Van de Weyer G.: Enkele nieuwe en merkwaardige zweefvliegen voor de Belgische fauna (Diptera: Syrphidae).
Phegea 30(2): 48–54.
Omwille van recente beschrijvingen van Syrphidae gedurende het laaste decennium, worden zes nieuwe soorten toegevoegd aan de Belgische fauna. De te verwachten soorten, alsook enkele merkwaardige waarnemingen van de laatste jaren, worden besproken.

Schurian K. G.: Observations on the pre-imaginal stages of Polyommatus (Aricia) torulensis (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 30(2): 55–60.
Between the years 1994 and 1996 the biotope of Polyommatus (Aricia) torulensis Hesselbarth & Siepe, 1993 in the Northeast of Turkey was visited three times, to get some facts about the ecology and biology of this blue. The eggs are deposited in the wild on the leaves of a Geranium species with violet flowers and bright leaves. The plant grows on steep west situated cliffs which are difficult accessible. Few eggs were obtained in captivity, from which 20% of the larvae hatched during late summer. From the remaining eggs the larvae hatched in spring. The rearing was less successful because of cannibalism, only 1 female and 1 male hatched, both of them were very large. The larva and pupa produce substrate-borne vibrations when disturbed. The larva possesses in the third and fourth instar a dorsal nectary organ on A7 and paired eversible tentacle organs on A8. Whether torulensis can be considered to be a separate species depends on the results of further studies within the Aricia group.

Hellers M.: The Tortricids of Luxemburg: an annotataed checklist (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae).
Phegea 30(2): 61–79.
This is a commented list of all species of Tortricoid moths discovered in Luxembourg until now. The number of species collected totals 269 species. The list contains details about the observed behaviour of the moths, the foodplant of their larvae and the biotope in which they have been observed. The distribution of rare species and their repartition in the abroad neighbourhood is compared. Species marked with '*' must be added for Luxembourg to the checklist edited by Karsholt & Razowski (1996). Species marked with two '*' should be deleted, being identification errors. Two species not yet recorded from the abroad neighbourhood have been discovered in Luxembourg: Notocelia tetragona (Stephens, 1834) and Cydia lobarzewskii (Nowicki, 1860).


Phegea 30 – nummer 3 (1 september 2002)

Vanholder B. & Bolland F.: Pechipogo plumigeralis: een nieuwe soort voor de Belgische fauna (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).
Phegea 30(3): 81–83.
Op 20 en 21 juli 2000 werd telkens een vrouwtje Pechipogo plumigeralis (Hübner, [1825]) gevangen op licht te Westende (provincie West-Vlaanderen). Dit is de eerste vermelding van deze soort uit België.

Charmeux J.-F.: A new species of the genus Pamiria from North Pakistan (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 30(3): 85–88.
Pamiria farmanali sp. nov. is described from the Tirich Mir mountains in the Hindu Kush (Pakistan). The basal metallic suffusion on the hind wing underside in both sexes does not continue beyond the discal area. The upperside wing ground colour is bright blue in the male and the black marginal band is narrow (1 mm). The new species is compared with the related species occurring in the same region. The holotype is deposited in the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle d'Angers, France.

Kuchlein, J. H., Kuchlein-Nijsten C. & De Prins W.: Phyllonorycter medicaginella, nieuw voor de Belgische fauna (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae).
Phegea 3(3): 89–94.
Phyllonorycter medicaginella (Gerasimov, 1930) wordt voor het eerst uit België vermeld. In 2000 en 2001 werden bladmijnen gevonden op Melilotus alba en op Medicago lupulina langs het Albertkanaal nabij Opkanne (Belgische provincie Limburg). De meest nabije vindplaatsen liggen in Oost-Duitsland op grote afstand, en sinds 2000 in de Nederlandse provincies Limburg en Zeeland.

Kolev Z.: Critical notes on some recent butterfly records (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea & Hesperioidea) from Bulgaria and their source collection.
Phegea 30(3): 95–101.
The author reviews several cases of proven or suspected errors in label data in the collection of Alexander Slivov kept at the Institute of Zoology - Sofia (IZS), Bulgaria. It is argued that these errors are attributable to mislabelling of material collected elsewhere, and it is concluded that records based on such material should, in the absence of independent confirmation, be considered highly doubtful and preferably disregarded altogether. This is of particular importance in the case of species not recorded from Bulgaria before, of which several (Pyrgus andromedae, Muschampia proto, Boloria titania, Pseudochazara graeca, Pseudochazara geyeri and Chilades trochylus) have recently been published as new to the country. Of these, only the record of P. andromedae from Mt. Pirin has been independently confirmed. The findings of the present report lead to the exclusion of Rhodopi Mts. from the range of Boloria graeca. It is also shown that the type series of the taxa Smoljana Slivov, 1995 and Boloria (Smoljana) rhodopensis Slivov, 1995 has apparently originated not from Rhodopi at all but from the northern part of Mt. Pirin.

Garrevoet T. & Garrevoet W.: Synanthedon rubiana, a new species to the European fauna (Lepidoptera: Sesiidae).
Phegea 30(3): 103.
A male Synanthedon rubiana Kallies, Petersen & Riefenstahl, 1998 was caught for the first time in Europe. The specimen was observed in Greece (Province of Messinia) at Kalo Nero on 12 May 2001 at sea level.

Bengtsson B. A.: Scythridids of the Arabian Peninsula, I: Oman (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae).
Phegea 30(3): 105–118.
Around the year-shift of 1992 and 1993 Bjarne Skule, Denmark collected 159 specimens of the family Scythrididae in Oman. 11 different species were identified of which 6 are new to science: Scythris alhamrae sp. n., S. amplexella sp. n., S. cucullella sp. n., S. elachistoides sp. n., S. pollicella sp. n., and S. valgella sp. n. Genitalia and external appearances of these are presented and the distribution area and other information available are given for all treated species.
