Extra-Mediterranean refugia: The rule and not the exception?
Recent genetic analyses revealed that typical Mediterranean species have also survived the Last Glacial Maximum in cryptic northern refugia (e.g. in the Carpathians or even north of the Alps) in addition to their Mediterranean refuge areas.
Types of oreal and oreotundral disjunctions in the western Palearctic
All alpine and arctic-alpine disjunction types of the western Palearctic are listed using butterflies and moths as a model group and hypotheses of the distribution patterns during the last ice age are formulated.
Pattern of genetic differentiation in the Maculinea alcon species group (Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae) in Central Europe
The results indicated that the geographic pattern was slightly more expressed in the between sample variation compared with the species pattern of it, which seems to contradict with the conventional taxonomical subdivision.

Since the fragmentation of natural habitats is one of the most serious problems for many endangered species, it is highly interesting to study the properties of fragmented landscapes. As a basic…

The use of host ants by M. alcon and M. ‘rebeli’ is compared at the regional scale in NE-Hungary and Transylvania (Romania), where molecular studies have found no species-level separation between the two forms.
Habitat monitoring in Europe: a description of current practices
Monitoring of biodiversity at the level of habitats is becoming increasingly common. Here we describe current practices in habitat monitoring based on 150 schemes in Europe. Most schemes were…
Genetic differentiation among the Maculinea species (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) in eastern Central Europe
The results indicated that the large blues are generally less polymorphic than other European lycaenid butterflies studied, at the same time, the level of genetic differentiation was high, even among local populations within the species.
Are Polyommatus hispana and Polyommatus slovacus bivoltine Polyommatus coridon (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)? The discriminatory value of genetics in taxonomy
Host ant use of Maculinea teleius in the Carpathian Basin (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)
A less restricted host ant use of M. teleius in the central part of the Carpathian Basin than records from France is shown, which correspond with thehost ant use data recorded from Poland.
The re-discovered Maculinea rebeli (Hirschke, 1904): Host ant usage, parasitoid and initial food plant around the type locality with taxonomical aspects (Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae)
Abstract The taxonomy of the myrmecophilous Maculinea alcon group (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) is highly debated. The host-plant and host-ant usage of these butterflies have conventionally been…
