Currently, 119 taxa of caddisflies are recorded from Sakhalin Island. A recently submittedmanuscript (Arefina and Armitage in press) reports two new species and four new records from the familyHydroptilidae for this Far Eastern District. Examination of material collected during expeditions to the Islandin 2001 and 2002 has revealed one new species,...

First finding of Pezotettix giornae (Rossi, 1794), new to the orthoptera fauna of South Tyrol (Insecta, Acrididae). In the framework of the ongoing project Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol a hitherto unknown orthoptera species was newly recorded for the fauna of South Tyrol: Pezotettix giornae was found in summer and autumn 2022 close to Tramin/...

This paper describes four new species of the genus Wormaldia (Philopotamidae): W. transversa, W. cercilonga, W. cercifurcata, and W. squamosa, all from Burmese amber. They belong to so-called micro-caddisflies, which, together with many other Philopotamidae, Psychomyiidae, and the Hydroptilidae, rarely exceed a wing length of ca. 3.5 mm. These micr...

We provide an annotated synopsis of all the Eurasian Lyctinae with a key to all three tribes, seven genera and thirty-eight species. We provide for each species a summary of what is currently known about its taxonomic status, distribution, host plants, biology, and economic importance as a baseline for future studies of the fauna, particularly in r...

... The NJ trees of length 658 were obtained, which is shown in Fig. 3. ML analyses showed twelve genetically distinct groups, which supports the species except for K. nozakii (Kuhara 1999). The unknown larvae were grouped clearly with the adult specimens of K. minakawai Arefina 2005, supported by a high bootstrap value (100), although they are paraphyletic with respect to the adults. The mean, uncorrected pair-wise genetic distance (p-distance) within the lineage of adult specimens of K. minakawai and Kisaura larval specimens was 2.3% (range, 1.9-2.6%). ...

Four genera of Philopotamidae (Trichoptera) are known from Japan: Chimara, Dolophilodes, Kisaura, and Wormaldia. Among them, adults of the genus Kisaura are known in the Oriental and East Palearctic region; but until now, larvae of this genus have not been observed. In this study, molecular evidence is presented to support the relationship between adults and larvae of Kisaura minakawai Arefina 2005 from hyporheic zones of Japanese rivers. Morphological features of the larva of K. minakawai, which include very small eyes and somewhat dorsoventrally flattened (depressed) head capsules, compared with those of other philopotamid species, are also suggested to be adapted to the hyporheic zone. Detailed morphology of K. minakawai larval characters are provided.

Previously, caddisflies of the genus Plectrocnemia Stephens, 1836 were unknown in the fauna of Siberia. In May-October 2018 adult P. kusnezovi Martynov, 1934 and P. wui (Ulmer, 1932) were collected in the upper part of the Yenisei River basin (Republic of Khakassia, Abakan city, Abakan River valley) with a UV lamp. These records clarify the northern and western boundaries of their ranges. Distribution of P. kusnezovi and P. wui in Asia and flight periods in the region are given. A possible record of P. conspersa (Curtis, 1834) in Western Siberia is discussed; this species is known from the Ural Mountains, Southern Siberia (Salair Ridge) and Xinjiang-Uygur Autonomous Region of China.

Kisaura collections from Shikoku, western Japan were examined and 8 species including 3 new species were recognized: K. ashizuriensis sp. nov., K. curvispina sp. nov. K. brevis sp. nov. K. kisoensis (Tsuda), K. minakawai Arefina, K. tsudai (Botoşǎneanu), K. nozakii (Kuhara) and K. dichotoma Kuhara & Arefina. Males of all 3 new species are described. Kisaura imparis Hur & Morse is synonymized under K. minakawai.
