Article
The spotted wing drosophila Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura, 1931) could potentially become a serious invasive pest of fruit crops in the North of Africa in the coming years, leading to substantial economic losses. This pest is reported for the first time in Algeria. It was detected in M'sila in the north‐east of the country within an pomegranate agr...

We sampled the ants in the Yakouren forest by combining three methods : Pitfall traps, hand sampling and bait traps. Twenty-seven (27) taxa were collected from the subfamilies Myrmicinae, Formicinae and Dolichoderinae. Camponotus alii, Pheidole pallidula and Crematogaster auberti are the most abundant species respectively. Different estimators of r...

Pomegranates are attacked by invasive fruit flies of the family Drosophilidae including the African fig fly, Zaprionus indianus. This species is reported for the first time from North-East Algeria reared from pomegranate fruits from two commercial pomegranate orchards. This vinegar fly is an opportunist that uses both fallen fruits and damaged frui...

Résumé : Une nouvelle clé de détermination des espèces de Monomorium du Maghreb et des Canaries est présentée en remplacement de celle publiée précédemment par Barech et al. (2017). Monomorium bernardi, M. lanzarotense, M.planidorsum et M. subnitidum sont élevés au statut de bonne espèce. Monomorium planidorsum (= M. sp. 1 Cagniant, 2006) est nouv...

Messor hodnii n. sp. is a new species of myrmicine ant from Chott El Hodna in Algeria. The description and illustration is based on the worker caste. This species has a psammophore and it strongly resembles M. caviceps. Here, we provide a key to Messor species in the Maghreb region (North Africa), integrating the new species. Thirty-six taxa of thi...

Le présent travail consiste à l'étude de la diversité myrmécologique aux abords du Barrage El Ksob (M'sila, Algérie) qui s'est déroulée en avril 2015 et présente le premier inventaire de la faune de fourmis de ce milieu humide et artificiel. Deux mé-thodes d'échantillonnage (récolte manuelle et pots barber) ont été adoptées, et l'échantillonnage a...

De nouvelles citations sont mentionnées pour la rare fourmi Monomorium major Bernard, 1953 des steppes algériennes. Monomorium major, dont l'écologie est peu documentée, n'a pas été retrouvée en Algérie depuis 1961 lors des recherches du myrmécologue G. Délye dans le Saoura (Sahara Nord Occidentale, Algérie), et ces nouvelles citations étendent son...

Myrmecological investigations were conducted in an olive grove agro-ecosystem. Among the taxa we report the presence of the cryptic ant species Lioponera longitarsus, subfamily Dorylinae, for the first time in Algeria. Standard morphological measurements are presented for worker and queen. The discovery of this genus for the fourth time in North Af...

In the first study of its kind, ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) were sampled near a unique natural environment, a large saline lake, Chott El Hodna, a Ramsar Conservation Wetland in eastern Algeria. The species of ants were determined at two sites, Medbah and Birkraa in spring (March–April) 2011 using pitfall trapping and hand collecting. We provide...

The Algerian hedgehog, Atelerix algirus, is recorded from North Africa, the Balearic, Canary and Maltese islands, and into parts of the Mediterranean coastal regions of Spain. The lack of an archeozoologi-cal record in Europe, Balearic, Maltese or Canary Islands has led several authors to postulate recent introductions by humans, but few studies ac...

Background: Islands possess varied histories and geographical and ecological settings, and they are exposed to different stochastic events. Because of this complexity, the mechanisms determining and maintaining species assemblages on islands are poorly understood, and analyses of entire taxonomic groups of sufficiently large areas are necessary to...
Article
Abstract: During a recent myrmecological investigation in the north of Algeria, we had the chance to collect by hand an exotic ant species that is recognised as invasive worldwide. It's the Argentine Ant, Linepithema humile Mayr, 1868, a species which had not been found since 1923 and on whose original locality there was no information. Since then...

The Mediterranean basin is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. During the Pleistocene this region encompassed several mainland and insular glacial refugia, which generated a mosaic of genetic lineages and taxa that identify faunal subregions. We studied the butterfly fauna of the islands in the Sicilian strait and compared their genetics with...

Because of its biodiversity richness and high endemicity, the Mediterranean basin is considered one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. During the Pleistocene this region encompassed several distinct glacial refugia which generated a mosaic-like structure of different subregions. This created strong genetic contrasts between them and produced bio...
Conference Paper
Ants are highly appreciated by Algerian hedgehogs. Their large abundances were recorded in the feeding of the two Erinaceidae species in Algeria: the North African Hedgehog Atelerix algirus (Lereboullet, 1842) and the Desert Hedgehog Paraechinus aethiopicus (Ehrenberg, 1832). The diet of these Erinaceidae was studied by means of faecal analysis dur...

The study of endoparasites (helminths and coccidians) in the Algerian (Atelerix algirus) and desert (Paraechinus aethiopicus) hedgehogs was performed between July 2008 and October 2009. The helminth species found included two cestodes, Mathevotaenia erinacei (Anoplocephalidae) and an unidentified cestode larva in the mesentery, eight species of nem...

Tetramorium lanuginosum MAYR, 1870 is reported for the first time from Algeria and is considered as an exotic species in this country. It was found in an irrigated green within the installations of the Institut National Agronomique at El Harrach, Algiers. This is the eighth exotic ant species noted in Algeria. Key words: Algeria, exotic, first reco...
