Abstract and Figures

Morphological Characters of the Pupae of Some Tiger Moths (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae) of Far East Rus-sia. Pljushch I. G., Dolinskaya I. V. – Pupae of 6 species representing 5 genera of Arctiidae, were ex-amined. Descriptions and comparative morphological analysis are provided for all these species. As a result, all the examined species are subdivided into 2 groups; the diagnostic characters for species are chosen. K e y w o r d s: Lepidoptera, Arctiidae, pupa, morphology, descriptions, diagnostic characters. Ìîðôîëîãè÷åñêèå ïðèçíàêè êóêîëîê íåêîòîðûõ äàëüíåâîñòî÷íûõ ìåäâåäèö (Lepidoptera, Arctiidae). Ïëþù È.

Characters of 66 species from 38 genera are given. It includes both the author's results (Dolinskaya,1984; 1986; 1989; 1993) and data from the literature

The morphology of the egg, larva, pupa, and the biology of Paidia murina (Hb.) are described, with notes on adult and larval behaviour. P. murina is an univoltine summer short-lived (av.= 6-7 days) nocturnal moth. Females lay about 200 eggs. Larvae feed on algae and lichens (Phaeophyscia, Lecanora, Parmelia, Collema, Candelariella, Verrucaria), mainly on stones and stone walls, more rarely on tree trunks, at night. Larval development takes 10-11 months. The number of larval instars may be ten, as estimated by means of Dyar's law. Four parasitoid Hymenoptera were identified...

Representatives of the genera Uropyia Stgr., Cnethodonta Stgr., Peridea Stephen, Notodonta Осhеnh., Urodonta Stgr., Semidonta Stgr., Drymonia Нbn, Pterostoma Gеrmar, Lophontosia Stgr., Lophocosma Stgr. and Spatalia Нbn have elongated maxilla, extending to 2/3 of forewing length. The peculiarity of the species from genera Cnethodonta Stgг. and Stauropus Gеmаг is indistinct medium legs (except Ptilophora plumigera Sсhiff., where antennae cover almost completely the legs). In genus Pterostoma Gегmаг species P. grisea Br. and P. palpina L. have much more in common morphological features in contrast to P. sinica Moore. There are, apparently, vicarious species - P. palpina L. and P. grisea. Analysis of the known points of the findings showed that the 4) geographic range extended from Europa to lake Baikal, and the second - from lake Baikal to the Primorye (Far East, Russia), while P. sinica only noted in Priamurye and Primorye (Far East, Russia). Caterpillar species all of the above genera pupate in the soil or forest litter. The species of the genera Clostera Sаmоuеllе and Micromelalopha Nаgаnо have a short maxilla (not extending to ½ of forewing length) Caterpillars genus Clostera pupate on the host plant, between the sheets, and genus Micromelalopha in the soil or forest litter.

Article completes the series of the author's studies about morphological and biological characteristics of pupae Palaearctic notodontids (Dolinskaya, 1984; 1986, 1989). Key to 38 genera based on pupal characters of 66 species are given

As this article is written in 1986, then some latin names of taxa became antiquated. Author in this resume follows the modern names of taxa (Schintlmeister, 2008). Rabtala cristata Butl., R. splendida Oberth.= Euhampsonia cristata Butl., E. splendida Oberth. Urocampa ocypete Br.= Fentonia ocypete Br. Pheosia fusiformis Matsumura = Pheosia rimosa fusiformis Matsumura Euchila sinicum Moore = Pterostoma sinica Moore Eligmodonta ziczac L.= Notodonta ziczac L. Gonoclostera timonides Br. = Gonoclostera timoniorum Br. Pupae of 19 species representing 16 genera of Notodontidae from Ukraine and Far East (Russia) were examined. As this article is continuation of morphological researches of notodontids pupas (Dolinskaya, 1984 the conclusions aggregate data are driven, about pupas 40 species from 24genera. Cerura Schr., Harpyia Ochsenh., Furcula Lamarck, Gluphisia Bsdv., Pygaera Ochsenh., Clostera Samouel., and Gonoclostera Butler. Maxilla short, not extending to 1/2 of forewing length; not separate prothoracic and mesothoracic legs. Such uniformity structure maybe is related to that caterpillars of these genera pupate on a feed plant (barrels, branches or in leaves). Cremaster absent with the exception of Clostera. Rabtala (= Euhampsonia), Phalera Hubn., Stauropus Germar, Notodonta Ochsenh., Shaka Matsumura, Urocampa (= Fentonia), Tritophia (= Notodonta), Pheosia Hubn., Euchila (= Pterostoma), Ptilodon Hubn., Ptilodontella (= Ptilodon), Leucodonta Stgr., Eligmodonta (= Notodonta) and Spatalia Hubn. Maxilla extending to 1/3 of forewing length; separate only prothoracic legs. Caterpillars pupate in the soil or forest bedding. Cremaster present with the exception of Leucodonta and Ptilodontella (= Ptilodon). Urocampa (= Fentonia) and Spatalia. Tergite of 10-th abdominal segment is covered by the ledges of cuticle, formative the reticulated pattern. Phalera and Urocampa (= Fentonia) back edge of mesonotum pitted. Rabtala (= Euhampsonia), Phalera, Cerura, Furcula and Urocampa (= Fentonia). Top of the head with a large medial comb. Dicranura R.L. (D.ulmi Schiff.). Femurs of prothoracic legs are development. Maxilla very long, extending to tops of forewing length; separate prothoracic and mesothoracic legs.

A comprehensive study of an arctiid with pupal sex differentiation has been made. The features of specific importance in taxonomy are enumerated. Consumption of food during larval development positively affected the pupal weight. The successive loss in weight until emergence was different in the two sexes. The low percentage loss in females is assigned to restore more energy in view of future adult activities such as oviposition.
