Phegea 34(1): 13–16.
The recently described gelechiid moth Chrysoesthia verrucosa Tokár, 1999 is recorded for the first time for Italy, where it was found in the Aosta region on 3 August 2002.

Beshkov S.: Nola ronkayorum sp. n., a new species from Bulgaria and Turkey (Lepidoptera: Nolidae).
Phegea 34(1): 17–32.
Nola ronkayorum sp. n. is described from Bulgaria (Southern Black Sea Coast and Eastern Rhodopi Mts.) and Turkey (Taurus Mts. and Eastern Pontic Mts.). The new species forms small colonies and is on the wing for a short period in April-May. N. ronkayorum differs in appearance from the other known Nola species. In genital characteristics it shows clear differences from the closely related Nola confusalis, especially the sclerotization on the ductus bursae of the female and in the sclerotization of the eighth abdominal segment in the male, as well as by other small differences in male and female genitalia.

Phegea 34 – nummer 2 (1 juni 2006)

Poltavsky A. N. & Artokhin K. S.: Tarachidia candefacta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in the south of European Russia.

The moth species has established itself in small, local populations. Only during recent years, probably because of mild winters, it has enlarged its range in northern direction.

Beshkov S. & Slivov A.: On the presence of Valerietta niphopasta and Valerietta hreblayi nom. nov. in Europe and of Chersotis andereggii on the Balkan Peninsula (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae).
Phegea 34(3): 85–97.
Valerietta niphopasta (Hampson, 1906) (= Valerietta bulgarica (Drenovsky, 1953) syn. nov.) and Valerietta hreblayi Beshkov nom. nov. (= Valerietta bulgarica sensu Hreblay, 1992, junior secondary homonym) are two distinct taxa, both occurring in Bulgaria. V. niphopasta is known in Europe only from SW Bulgaria, Kresna Gorge, published and illustrated before from there as "Crypsedra niphopasta bulgarica Dren." and from Vitosha Mnt., from where was described Crypsedra niphopasta bulgarica Drenovsky, 1953 syn. nov. The only known localities in Europe for Valerietta hreblayi are the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, "Arkutino" and its surroundings south of Bourgas town, from where the neotype of Valerietta bulgarica was designated and the last taxon was redescribed. In fact the redescription of V. bulgarica sensu Hreblay, 1992 is a description of a new species-group taxon. A review of both taxa is given and the European representatives of the genus Valerietta with their genitalia, including the everted vesica are illustrated. Chersotis andereggii (Boisduval, [1837]) is known to occur with certainty on the Balkan Peninsula. Proved localities in SW Bulgaria are: S. Pirin mnt. and E. Rila mnt. The male genitalia, including the everted vesica, are illustrated here.

A new species of Conophorus is described from Turkey. It is very closely related to Conophorus nobilis Loew, 1873 but can readily be distinguished by the form of the proboscis and the colour of the hairs on the frons. The identification key of Bowden (1967) is updated. One female of the new species has also been found on the Greek island of Lesvos.

van Nieukerken E. J.: Records of mining Lepidoptera in Belgium with nine species new to the country (Nepticulidae, Opostegidae, Tischeriidae, Lyonetiidae).
Phegea 34(4): 125–144.
Records of 56 species of mining Lepidoptera are given, mostly for Wallonia. Stigmella thuringiaca (Namur: Nismes, on Potentilla tabernaemontani), Ectoedemia arcuatella (Luxembourg, Namur, on Fragaria vesca) and Leucoptera lustratella (Luxembourg, Namur, on Hypericum perforatum) are reported new for Belgium on the basis of reared adults, Stigmella crataegella (Luxembourg: Belvaux, Crataegus monogyna), S. confusella (West-Vlaanderen, Betula pubescens), Trifurcula subnitidella (Namur: Nismes, Lotus corniculatus), and Ectoedemia spinosella (Namur: Nismes, Prunus spinosa) are reported as new on the basis of vacated mines and Coptotriche heinemanni (on Agrimonia eupatoria) and C. gaunacella (on Prunus spinosa) are reported as new both from the province of Luxembourg: Torgny, each on the basis of a single larva and mine, of which rearing failed. In addition to these, 50 new provincial records are given, particularly for Liège, Luxembourg and Namur. The previous record of Ectoedemia agrimoniae is regarded to be in the province of Luxembourg, not Namur.

Korb S. K.: On the systematics of some Colias cocandica-like taxa (Lepidoptera: Pieridae).
Phegea 34(4): 147–154.
In the present paper the status of the closely related taxa mongola, sidonia and ukokana is discussed. For ukokana the original subspecific status is returned. It is shown, that the taxa tamerlana and mongola are young, separate species with different origin - the former has its origin in a cocandica-like ancestor, the latter in a nastes-like ancestor. The exact type localities of the taxa mongola, sidonia, ukokana, maja, and tamerlana are listed. The holotype (female) of Colias cocandica Erschoff, 1874 is pictured here for the first time.
