We have examined 41 localities, as a result of which, 24 species are reported for this region for the first time. In total, 40 Pterophoridae species are currently known for the Republic of Khakassia and for the south of Krasnoyarsk region.</p> Per Ya. Ustjuzhanin, Roman E. Maksimov Copyright (c) 2023 Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Notocelia mediterranea (Obraztsov, 1952) - a widespread cryptic species in Europe (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) <p><em>Notocelia mediterranea</em> (Obraztsov, 1952) was until recently widely overlooked and combined with its sister<br>species, <em>Notocelia incarnatana</em> (Hübner, [1800]). However, detailed evaluation of forewing pattern and genitalia of both sexes, as well as DNA barcode divergence clearly support the existence of two separate species. A brief comparison of the habitus of both species, as well as photographs of adults and genitalia of both sexes are given. Female genitalia of <em>Notocelia mediterranea</em> are detailed here for the first time. First records for Spain, France, Austria, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, and Montenegro are also given.</p> Jan Sumpich, Peter Huemer, Jacques Nel, Thierry Varenne Copyright (c) 2023 Jan Sumpich, Peter Huemer, Jacques Nel, Thierry Varenne Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 The larva and the food plant of Dirphia sombrero Le Cerf, 1934 (Lepidoptera: Saturnidae, Hemileucinae) <p>The last instar larva of <em>Diphia sombrero</em> Le Cerf, 1934, an endemic species to the southern Brazil Atlantic Forest, is described and illustrated, and its food plant is recorded.</p> Vitor O.

The specimen was collected from Tehsil Herman, district of Shopian in Kashmir valley, which is situated at the foothills of Pir Panjal Mountain range-Northwestern Himalayas, India; it is 50 km away from Srinagar, Kashmir.</p> Muzafar Riyaz, Savarimuthu Ignacimuthu Copyright (c) 2023 Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 The taxonomic position of the Neotropical genus Macrocirca Meyrick, 1931 with new synonymy and description of one new species (Lepidoptera: Depressariidae, Depressariinae) <p><em>Macrocirca strabo</em> Meyrick, 1931, described in the Hyponomeutidae, is transferred to the Depressariidae, Depressariinae. A new species, <em>Macrocirca moseri</em> Becker, sp. nov., from Brazil, is described. <em>Odonna</em> Clarke, 1982, syn. nov. is a junior synonym of <em>Macrocirca</em> Meyrick, 1931; <em>M. passiflorae</em> (Clarke, 1982), comb. nov. and <em>M. xenodora</em> (Clarke, 1982), comb. nov. are included in <em>Macrocirca</em>.</p> Vitor O.

The second destructive group of insects is defoliator Lepidoptera distributed in the Zagros forests of Iran. We assessed Lepidoptera communities in Zagros forests ecosystems in Lorestan province, western Iran during a ca. 2-yr period that coincided with defoliation outbreaks experienced by this area. A number of 500 lepidopteran larva feeding <em>Quercus</em> leaves handy were collected. The phylogenetic relationship of Lepidoptera was analysed using BEAST software based on the Bayesian Inference method. In total, 14 lepidopteran taxa were identified based on DNA sequences of their immature stages. Six genera and eight species were identified using BLASTn. Here we developed a COI barcoding-based approach to Lepidoptera species delimitation.</p> Asadollah Hosseini-Chegeni, Majid Tavakoli Copyright (c) 2023 Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 New data on the genus Scythris Hübner, [1825] from the Canary Islands (Spain), with description of six new species (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae) <p>The <em>Scythris petrella</em> species-group in the Canary Islands is revised based on external morphology, genitalia and DNA barcodes. Eleven species are recognized. Six species are described as new: <em>Scythris aronaella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife), <em>Scythris moyaella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Gran Canaria), <em>Scythris rupemella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Gran Canaria), <em>Scythris linealbella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife), <em>Scythris solisella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: El Hierro and Tenerife) and <em>Scythris ochrelinella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife). <em>Scythris hierroella</em> Klimesch, 1986, syn. nov. is treated as a synonym of <em>Scythris petrella</em> Walsingham, 1908. Photographs of adults and genitalia of all species are provided. All species are DNA barcoded. Analyses of the DNA barcodes support the identifications and distinctiveness of each species as they all appear well-supported and genetically isolated.</p> Per Falck Copyright (c) 2023 Per Falck Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Lepidoptera collected in S. W. Mongolia during expedition in Mongolian Altai in 2022 (Lepidoptera: Geometridae) <p>An annotated checklist of Geometridae collected in Southwest Mongolia is presented. In total 51 species are recorded. Eight species are recorded as new for the fauna of Mongolia, <em>Alcis depravata</em> (Staudinger, 1892), <em>Holoterpna diagrapharia</em> Püngeler, 1900, <em>Scotopteryx supproximaria</em> (Staudinger, 1892) <em>Cataclysme riguata </em>(Hübner, [1813]), <em>Rhodostrophia crypta</em> Viidalepp &amp; Kostkuk, 2020,<em> Idaea ossiculata</em> (Lederer, 1870), <em>Scopula </em><em>divisaria</em> (Christoph, 1893), and <em>Casilda consecraria</em> (Staudinger, 1871). Habitus and genitalia are illustrated for these species. Four of them were DNA-barcoded, as well as three other species. Results of DNA barcoding are discussed.</p> Ilya A. Makhov, Vladimir A.

We made observations regarding its oviposition strategy, and established its preference for floral stems of <em>Salvia nutans</em> L. taller than five centimeters. <em>Salvia transsilvanica</em> Schur was also confirmed as a host plant for <em>P. bavius hungarica</em>. The distribution map of this subspecies was completed in two localities from the south of the Transylvanian Plain, Râpa Lechint¸a and Râpa Da˘ta˘ reni. We reported presence of <em>P. bavius</em> in Tulcea County for the first time, thus supporting the hypothesis that it colonised Dobrogea via Ukraine alongside <em>P. bavius bavius</em> (Eversmann, 1832) and it did not spread from Turkey and Bulgaria alongside <em>P. bavius egea</em>. Many conservation threats that may lead to population fragmentation and extinction have been identified.</p> Andrei Crisan, Tibor-Csaba Vizauer, László Rákosy Copyright (c) 2023 Andrei Crisan, Tibor-Csaba Vizauer, László Rákosy Sat, 30 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0100 A new species of the genus Orthotmeta Warren, 1896 from west Papua, Indonesia (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Ennominae, Eutoeini) <p><em>Orthotmeta robdevosi</em> Expósito, sp. n. from west Papua, Indonesia.
