Phegea 38 – nummer 2 (1 juni 2010) (Mededelingen)

Larsen K.: The genus Clavigesta (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) with description of two new species.
Phegea 38(2): 41–54.
This paper deals with the genus Clavigesta Obraztsov, 1946. The material of the author’s collection and some additional material has been examined. Together with the two already known species in this genus, two new species are described and figured: Clavigesta gerti n. sp. and Clavigesta tokei n. sp. The distribution of all four species is described in detail and it is detected that all four species occur in the Mediterranean region and that the genus may have originally evolved in the pine forests of this region. C. purdeyi from the central Mediterranean area is looking slightly different from the populations in North-West Europe indicating a long time separation of the populations.

Dinca V.: Notes on the distribution and taxonomical status of the enigmatic Polia cherrug (Noctuidae) in Dobrogea (south-eastern Romania).
Phegea 38(2): 55–61.
A new locality, representing the third known for Polia cherrug Rákosy & Wieser, 1997, is reported from northern Dobrogea, south-eastern Romania. The species’ habitat, imagos and genitalia of both sexes are illustrated. By comparing the distributions of P. cherrug, P. nebulosa (Hufnagel, 1766) and Pachetra sagittigera (Hufnagel, 1766) in Dobrogea, the hypothesis that P. cherrug might represent a natural hybrid between the latter two species is discussed.

Phegea 38 – nummer 3 (1 september 2010) (Mededelingen)

Lock K., De Prins G. & Goethals P. L. M.: First record of Limnephilus binotatus in Belgium (Trichoptera: Limnephilidae).
Phegea 38(3): 81–84.
Caddisflies or Trichoptera are known as indicators of a good water quality. In Belgium, however, caddisflies hardly received any attention recently. Because most species are attracted to light, the help was invoked of moth collectors to increase the knowledge about the Belgian caddisflies. One of the first results of this co-operation was the capture of Limnophilus binotatus Curtis, 1834, which had not yet been reported for Belgium. The species was found in the nature reserve Bospolder – Ekers Moeras, along with 12 other caddisfly species, all of which are characteristic for standing waters. This record indicates there is still a lot to be discovered about the Belgian caddisflies and we hope to convince more moth catchers to collect some caddisflies during sampling with light traps.

Anastassiu H. T., Ghavalas N. & Coutsis J. G.: First record of Cacyreus marshalli in Greece, and comments on the potential occurrence of Zizeeria karsandra on the Greek island of Crete (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 38(3): 85–92.
A thriving colony of Cacyreus marshalli (Butler, 1898) is reported for the first time from Greece. The butterflies appeared in large numbers in late summer and throughout autumn of 2009 in parkland and gardens in the northern suburbs of Athens. Introduced Pelargonium plants in a particular park were identified as the most probable explanation of this sudden occurrence. Moreover, the authors’ persistent, yet unsuccessful efforts to locate Zizeeria karsandra (Moore, 1865) on the island of Crete are discussed.

De Prins W.: Interessante waarnemingen van Lepidoptera in België in 2009 (Lepidoptera).

Ðuric M., Popovic M. & Verovnik R.: Jelašnica gorge – a ‘hot spot’ of butterfly diversity in Serbia.
Phegea 38(3): 111–120.
Jelašnica gorge is only 2 km long, but hosts one of the richest butterfly fauna in Serbia. A total of 110 species were observed during a three year survey. The presence of some rare and threatened species like Maculinea arion, Nymphalis vaualbum, Melitaea arduinna is discussed. Twenty six species present in Jelašnica have some sort of endangerment status either on European or national level giving this site together with overall high diversity a high conservation priority.
