Article
Two new species of the genus Pseudachorutes, namely P. hyrcanicus sp. nov. and P. kurdistanicus sp. nov., are described based on materials from different parts of Iran. P. hyrcanicus sp. nov. seem to be especially similar to Pseudachorutes dubius Krausbauer, 1898 and Pseudachorutes vitalii Kaprus’ & Weiner, 2009, two congeners with the same labral...

Mitochondrial DNA sequence variations and the geometric morphometric method can be used to differentiate honeybee subspecies and evolutionary lineages. Molecular markers are powerful tools for discriminating honeybee subspecies. In this study, 19 beekeeping sites were selected to collect Iranian honeybee samples.

Ololaelaps tasmanicus (Womersley, 1956) is redescribed from the holotype female and two additional female specimens from Australia. Ololaelaps elongatus Babaeian sp. nov. is described and illustrated from specimens from soil in Western Iran. The new species can be distinguished from the other congeners by four diagnostic morphological character sta...

In addition to determining the lethal effects, identifying sublethal effects of a pesticide is crucial to understanding the total impact a pesticide may have on a pest population. We determined the sublethal effects the two pesticides, abamectin and pyridaben, have on the cyclamen mite, Phytonemus pallidus (Banks) (Acari: Tarsonemidae)—a major pest...
Article
One of the major storage insect pests of cowpea and many other grains is Callosobruchus maculatus (F.) (Col.: Bruchidae). The use of plant materials rather than conventional pesticides to control these pests is a promising alternative to neurotoxic insecticides. In this study, for the first time, the fumigant, contact toxicity and repellent activit...

The green oak leaf roller Tortrix viridana L. is one of the most important pests in oak forests. The larvae by feeding of leafs and leaf buds causes the tree to have no leaves in the spring. This state has a profound effect on the health of the tree. In west of Iran the moth also is one of the important pest of oaks. The larvae of the moth causes h...

The green oak leaf roller Tortrix viridana L. (Lep: Tortricidae) is one of the defoliators on oaks in many European, Asia Minor and Northern African countries. In west of Iran the moth also is one of the important pest of oaks. The larvae of the moth causes heavy defoliation on three main oak species including Quercus libani, Q.infectoria and Q.bra...

One new species of Cunaxa, C. iranica Paktinat-Saeij, Bagheri & Castro sp. nov., is described and illustrated based on female, male and tritonymph collected from Mazandaran Province, northern Iran. The female, male and nymphal stages of Armascirus hastus Shiba, 1986 are redescribed based on Iranian specimens. In addition, the species Cunaxa gordeev...

The results of a faunistic survey of jewel beetles (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) in Kurdistan Province of Iran are presented. Totally 30 species belonging to two subfamilies (Buprestinae and Agrilinae) and 8 genera were collected and identified. Of these 1 species is new for Iranian fauna and 19 species are new for Kurdistan Province.

We tested the suitability of Landsat images to track defoliation by insect herbivory with focus on the oak leaf roller, Tortrix viridana (Lep.: Tortricidae). Landsat images from the period before (2002) and after the T. viridana infestation (2007, 2014) were compared in oak forests of Zagros in western Iran. The Normalised Difference Vegetation Ind...

The green oak leaf roller, Tortrix viridana L., is one of the most destructive pests, causing damages to various species of oak, feeding on different host plants including Quercus infectoria Oliv, Q. branti Lindl, and Q. libani Oliv. Nutritional indices, activity of enzymatic and non-enzymatic compounds of T. viridana were studied under laboratory...

Buprestid beetles are one of the important components of the biodiversity of forest ecosystem in Kurdistan Province. Different characteristics of biodiversity of buprestid beetles were studied by use of window trap, colored pan and colored sticky trap in these forests during 2009 and 2010. A total of 1205 specimens of 44 species were caught by use...

Project
In the past three years, collaboration has been shaped with the researchers at the University of Kurdistan and Gorgan University to assess the biodiversity, biogeography and taxonomy of the Iranian Chironomidae. Iran is a cross-bridge of three geographical realms, the Palearctic, the Orientals, and the Afrotropical region, and therefore many unique insect taxa can be found in Iran. Additionally, a wide range of geological and environmental variables within a small geographical area has contributed to the high endemism of many faunas, including insects. These make Iran an exciting country to study Chironomidae. Our investigation has concentrated on the Province of Kurdistan. However, we are expanding our research to other regions of the country. Up to date, we have recorded 31 new faunistic records from this country and described three new species, including a new genus. 1.
