On some Chrysopidae of Greece

  title={On some Chrysopidae of Greece},
  author={L. Santas},
Summary In a country-wide survey of Chrysopidae, twenty-one species were found. This study was based upon organised uniform recordings, causal observations, continuous collecting and breeding during the last ten years (1970 to 1979). The studied areas included the mainland and most of the Islands in different crops and spontaneous vegetation. The distribution of the Chrysopids has shown differences in various areas of Greece. From these 21 species, Chrysoperla carnea (STEPHENS) was encountered… Expand

Notes on the Chrysopidae (Neuroptera) Fauna of Ardahan, Iğdır and Kars Provinces of Turkey
Dichochrysa ventralis Curtis, 1834 is a new record for the Turkish Neuroptera fauna and the distribution of each species, worldwide and in Turkey, is presented. Expand
Nomenclature of the type species of the genus Rexa Navás, 1920 (Neuroptera, Chrysopidae)
The nomenclature and distinguishing characteristics of the chrysopid genus Rexa are reviewed and an older species name Chrysopa corsica Hagen, 1864, is shown to be among the available names for Rexa almerai (Navás, 1919) (syn. Rexa lordina navás, 1920, Chrysopidia jordani Navás, 1929, Chrysopacorsicana Hölzel, 1965). Expand
The predators' complex of pear-feeding psyllids in unsprayed wild pear trees in greece
Four insect species producing honeydew, exploited by bees, were found on wild pear trees, Pyrus amygdaliformis Vill, and it seems that the predators of theseHomoptera may be able to cause a decrease of their population level. Expand
Life-History Traits of the Predatory Lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae): Temperature-Dependent Effects When Larvae Feed on Nymphs of Myzus persicae (Hemiptera: Aphididae)
Both female longevity and egg production were significantly affected by temperature, and the results could be useful for explaining phenology and population dynamics of this indigenous predator in the field. Expand
The two spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae (Acari: Tetranychidae), alternative prey for the lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
The predatory lacewing Dichochrysa prasina Burmeister can feed and reproduce on various aphid species. However, other species such as the two spotted spider mite Tetranychus urticae Koch may serve asExpand
Development and Reproduction of the Lacewings Dichochrysa flavifrons and Dichochrysa zelleri (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) Fed on Two Prey Species
The differences in development and reproduction among the two tested species when their larvae were fed on different prey could be of importance for their mass rearing and use in biological control. Expand
Effects of various prey species on development, survival and reproduction of the predatory lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
The effects of different prey species on preimaginal development and survival, as well as on adult longevity and fecundity of the predatory lacewing Dichochrysa prasina Burmeister were studied under laboratory conditions, resulting in high survival and short developmental time of pre Imaginal stages. Expand
Effect of relative humidity on development, survival and reproduction of the predatory lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
A significant increase in both longevity and egg production occurred and the estimated intrinsic rate of increase was high, irrespective of RH, which could be useful for the mass-rearing of D. prasina and for better understanding its population dynamics under field conditions. Expand
Effect of Prey Availability on Development and Reproduction of the Predatory Lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae)
It is likely that D. prasina can develop and reproduce either at high or low density aphid populations in the field, and effectively suppress them. Expand
Effect of temperature on survival, development and reproduction of the predatory lacewing Dichochrysa prasina (Neuroptera: Chrysopidae) reared on Ephestia kuehniella eggs (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae)
Both adult longevity and fecundity were significantly affected by temperature and the intrinsic rate of increase reached its maximum value at 27 °C, which could be useful for the establishment of a small scale rearing and mass production of D. prasina. Expand
