Selected combinations of (Z)-5-decenyl, (Z)-7-dodecenyl, and (Z)-9-tetradecenyl acetates, the pheromone components of the turnip mothAgrotis Segetum were tested for field attractancy at six, two, and three sites in Europe, Asia, and Africa, respectively. At all of the sites in Eurasia and in northern Africa the ternary mixture of the acetates captured most(More)
Thirty-two species of Hybotidae (Diptera: Empidoidea) were collected during the Boyekoli Ebale Congo 2010 Expedition that took place in the Democratic Republic of Congo along the Congo River between Kisangani and Bumba. Only four species were known previously. Here we present new records for Syndyas crisis Garrett Jones, 1940 and Crossopalpus aenescens(More)
The behavioral response of the predatory bug Orius laevigatus Fieber to synthetic analogues of secondary plant metabolites was studied. Two compounds most attractive to the bug, methyl salicylate and methyl jasmonate, were identified by olfactometer experiments and pot bioassays. The use of natural volatiles or their analogues as attractants for beneficial(More)
The paper describes laboratory tests in which the behavior response of adult rice weevils Sitophilus oryzae L. to the presence of seven species of micromycetes of the genus Fusarium (F. graminearum, F. culmorum, F. cerealis, F. poae, F. sporotrichioides, F. langsethiae, and F. sibiricum; 3 strains for each species) infecting cereals was characterized.

The genus Platypalpus Macquart is studied from Uzbekistan for the first time. Thirteen species are described as new for science: Platypalpus amankutanensis sp. nov., P. chimganensis sp. nov., P. commutatoides sp. nov., P. penesmirnovi sp. nov., P. sagma sp. nov., P. samarkandensis sp. nov., P. spatenkai sp. nov., P. subinfectus sp. nov., P. sublutescens sp.(More)
The taxonomy and distribution of the genus Hybos Meigen in the Palaearctic Region is reviewed with a special reference to the European fauna. Twenty-three species have been recorded from the Palaearctic, of which only four species are known from Europe. We describe two new species, H. andradei sp. nov. (Portugal) and H. mediasiaticus sp. nov. (Middle Asia).(More)
Attractiveness of methyl salicylate to arthropods in natural populations was studied in a park reserve. During the observation period, representatives of several families of Diptera (the leaf-mining Agromyzidae, the predatory Hybotidae, Dolichopodidae and Empididae), parasitic micro-Hymenoptera (Mymaridae, Pteromalidae, Eulophidae, and Aphelinidae), and(More)
Field tests conducted in Leningrad Province of Russia showed methyl salicylate to be highly attractive to the dance fly Rhamphomyia (Amydroneura) gibba (Fallén, 1816) (Diptera, Empidoidea, Empididae). Yellow sticky traps baited with methyl salicylate caught similar numbers of males and females, although males somewhat prevailed at the beginning of the(More)
