Phegea 48(1): 2–4.
One male specimen of Gynaephora selenitica (Esper, 1789) was retrieved in the collection of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. It was caught at Stoumont (LG) on 16.viii.1932 by J.

Çalışkan S. & Bozacı V.: Diversity of vernal butterflies of the East Mediterranean region of Turkey.
Phegea 48(1): 5–10.
In this study, spring butterflies of the East Mediterranean Region were searched and 104 taxa belonging to 5 families were determined. Butterfly specimens were caught with a butterfly net at 67 locations during the field work. The family distribution of species was Hesperiidae: 17, Lycaenidae: 39, Nymphalidae: 25, Papilionidae: 5 and Pieridae: 18. Evaluation of the vertical distribution of all species revealed that the highest and the lowest number of species were found at respectively 1250–1500 m (58 species) and 1750 m (10 species).

Phegea 48(1): 16–19.
A well-established colony of Melitaea aurelia is recorded here for the first time by the first author from the Greek part of the Rodhópi Mts. Identifications were carried out by the second author, those of males based on hitherto well-known genitalic characters and those of females by a set of new characters in combination with previous genitalic finds carried out by Urbahn (1952).
Başbay O., Salimeh M. & John E.: Preliminary note on the range expansion of Papilio demoleus (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) in south-eastern Turkey, and on the first documented arrival of this invasive species at the Mediterranean coast of Syria.
Phegea 48(1): 20–21.
The aim of this short note is to summarise recent reports of the extensive spread of Papilio demoleus in south-eastern Turkey and in regions adjacent to the north-eastern Mediterranean. P. demoleus, a papilionid of Oriental origin, is recognized in some Citrus-growing areas of the world as an invasive pest species and hence its arrival is of potential economic importance.
