Moth flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) from the Belgian transition of the Atlantic to the Central European faunal zones

Abstract

Several thousand specimens conserved in ethanol belonging to 33 species were found at two Belgian localities: Ottignies and Wanze, two sites in the transition zone of the Atlantic to the Central European faunal zones. 12 species are classified as new for this country: Jungiella (Jungiella) hygrophila Ježek, 1987, Panimerus denticulatus Krek, 1971, Paramormia (Paramormia) polyascoidea (Krek, 1971), Apsycha pusilla (Tonnoir, 1922), Copropsychoda brevicornis (Tonnoir, 1940), Logima satchelli (Quate, 1955), Logima sigma (Kincaid, 1988), Logima zetterstedti Ježek, 1983, Psychoda uniformata Haseman, 1907, Tinearia lativentris (Berdén, 1952), Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) longicorniculatus Krek, 1987, and Clytocerus (B.) splendidus Ježek & Hájek, 2007. An updated checklist of the Psychodidae of Belgium is added: 80 so far known species were elevated to 92.

Adequately and regularly collected material of aquatic invertebrates by traps installed
in dierent European countries is always very interesting. Modern catching methods
are very useful for faunistic research. e Palaearctic catalogue of nonbiting moth
ies (W 1990) shows 30 species described by T (1919a, b, 1920a, b,
1922a, b and 1940), however, not always from Belgium. In the original descriptions,
type localities were oen only quoted as ‘Belgium’ without additional details. From
the subfamily Phlebotominae only one species is recently reported from Belgium
(D et al. 2005). Relatively recent psychodid papers are D M (1991),
V et al. (2008) and B et al. (2009). A preliminary checklist of
Psychodidae of Belgium on the basis of the above mentioned papers and our results
(33 species identied) resulted in 92 species including 12 species new for Belgium.

e moth ies were collected by Malaise traps in 1981 and 1982 in two localities:
Ottignies (P. Dessart leg., Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Brussels) and
Wanze (R. Detry leg., same). Both locations are situated approximately in the centre
of Belgium in the transition of the Atlantic to the Central European faunal zones:
Ottignies-Louvain-la-Neuve in the River Dyle catchment, 116 m a.s.l., 50°39´N,
4°35´E, Province of Brabant Walloon. e trap was placed along the river Dyle. e
second trap was operated in Wanze near Huy, in a garden in the River La Mehaigne
catchment, 72 m a.s.l., 50°32´N, 5°13´E, Province of Liège. e captured moth ies
were preserved in 75 % ethanol in the eld and subsequently selected, cleared in
chloralphenol, treated in xylol, determined by the rst author and mounted on
526 glass slides in Canada balsam in Prague. e voucher specimens as well as
undetermined spirituous doublets are deposited in the Royal Belgian Institute of
Natural Sciences in Brussels. e observations were made using Carl Zeiss Jena
(Germany) and Reichert (Austria) microscopes. e nomenclature was modied
from V (1971-1983), J (1984), D (1990), K (2014)

Records of 46 Psychodidae (Sycoracinae 1, Trichomyiinae 1, Psychodinae 44) species/subspecies are presented in this paper based on specimens collected by sweep-netting in Azerbaijan and Georgia in 2019. Nine species are recorded for the first time since their original description; 12 species are new for Transcaucasia; 22 species are new for Azerbaijan; and 17 species are new for Georgia. Saraiella ressli montana Ježek, 1990 is proposed as a synonym of S. ressli Wagner, 1983, syn. nov. Knowledge of some aspects of the ecology and biogeography of selected (especially rare) species has been expanded and a clear pattern was found in species richness, rare species, and new records in relation to land use, habitat diversity, and preservation of the environment surrounding the sampling site.
... This also corresponds to our results, as no specimen of this species was recorded in traps during winter. T. alternata is a cosmopolitan species (e.g., Quate 1955;Satchel 1947;Vaillant 1971Vaillant -1983Rozkošný 1971;Ježek 1972;Halgoš 1973;Ježek 1984;Kroča & Ježek 2015, 2019, 2022Ježek et al., 2017Ježek et al., , 2018aJežek et al., ,b, 2020Morelli & Biscaccianti 2021;etc.).

Tinearia alternata (Say, 1824) is one of the most common cosmopolitan species of the family Psychodidae and is widespread throughout the world wherever it has suitable living and reproduction conditions. Due to its neutral relationship (whether positive or direct) to humans, this species is often overlooked and therefore insufficiently studied. This work provides a detailed analysis of the one-year life cycle of this species and also analyses the seasonal variability of wing length in both sexes of this species. From environmental variables, temperature positively correlates with abundance of both males and females of T. alternata, while precipitation showed negative correlations only with female abundance. T. alternata has two significant population maxima. The first large maximum, which consists of three mutually overlapping generations, was recorded in May-June. The second maximum was recorded at the end of August. The last indication of third maximum, represented by only a few specimens, was recorded at the turn of October and November. The data suggest a correlation between abundance (or activity) of both sexes with precipitation, with an inverse trend in values visible. Though we did not confirm a statistically significant correlation between precipitation and activity (abundance), we concluded that during periods of more intense precipitation, the activity (abundance) decreased to very low values. By analysing results of wing length of both sexes of T. alternata, we found out that the largest wing length for both sexes was recorded at beginning and end of the season, while shortest wing length for both sexes was recorded between June and August.

We conducted an extensive literature review in search of records of dendrolimnetic Psychodinae, with additional field sampling of the European species of Psychodinae associated with water-filled tree holes. After checking more than 100 publications, only 11 specific published records involving dendrolimnetic Psychodinae were found. Our results show that six genera, represented by 13 species of Psychodinae, are associated with 13 species of plant trees. As a result of our field sampling, we report Lepiseodina latipennis (Sarà, 1953) and Telmatoscopus bartai (Ježek, 2004) comb. nov. for the first time in Germany. Furthermore, we redescribe L. latipennis based on freshly collected material with a closer examination of the holotype. Derived from our findings, we review the genera Lepiseodina Enderlein, 1937 and Telmatoscopus Eaton, 1904, providing an identification key for the males of both genera. In addition, we synonymyze Krivosheinoscopus Ježek, 2001 syn. nov. under Telmatoscopus, changing combination of Telmatoscopus ussuricus (Ježek, 2001) comb. nov. and Telmatoscopus bartai (Ježek, 2004), additionally, we change combination and a sononymy of Tematoscopus wagneri (Salmanna, 1982) comb. et syn. nov. under Telmatoscopus advena (Eaton, 1893). Furthermore, we describe for the first time the female and eggs of Telmatoscopus advena. Moreover, we provide the first published DNA barcodes (COI) for Telmatoscopus bartai, Lepiseodina latipennis (Sarà, 1953), Lepiseodina rothschildi (Eaton, 1912), and Lepiseodina tristis (Meigen, 1830). Finally, we also discuss the taxonomy and ecology of the European dendrolimnetic species of the subfamily Psychodinae.
... Despite the difficulties in taxonomic definition, new regional or national species lists are still regularly published, updating the distribution areas of known species and/or describing new species (Ježek 2004;Ježek & Yağci 2005;Salmela et al. 2007; Kvifte & Boumans 2014;Kroča & Ježek 2015;Kvifte et al. 2016;Ježek et al. 2018aJežek et al. , 2018bJežek et al. , 2018cKroča & Ježek 2019;Kvifte 2019). However, the diversity of Psychoda remains unclear in many European regions, such as the island of Corsica. ...
Article
Among the 44 European Psychoda species identified to date, we expected to observe in Corsica species with large distribution ranges and/or that are frequent in adjacent territories (i.e. south mainland France, mainland Italy, and Sardinia). Each studied specimen was morphologically identified and then barcoded using cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and subunit II (COII) to confirm its identification, and to detect potential cryptic species. From 211 mounted specimens, 16 Psychoda sensu lato morphotypes were recorded in Corsica and mainland France. While 14 out of the 15 species recorded in Corsica are new records for the island, two species are also new records for France and Europe, P. (Psychodocha) uncinula Quate, 1954 and P. (Chodopsycha) divaricata Duckhouse, 1968. Moreover, our barcoding approach allowed us to detect 18 haplotypes in total, including three undescribed Corsican haplotype complexes, namely P. (Tinearia) alternata, P. (Logima) satchelli and P. (Psychodocha) cinerea. With only mitochondrial COI barcodes, it cannot be asserted whether these complexes represent the within-species coexistence of various haplotypes or the existence of distinct cryptic species. In BOLD (Barcode of Life Datasystems), only 30 out of the 58 barcode indice numéros (BINs) corresponding to the genus Psychoda have a species name. All of the COI barcodes generated in this study already exist in BOLD, suggesting that the barcodes of most of the temperate Psychoda diversity are already known, but not properly named.
... REMARKS. TONNOIR (1940) described his species as Pericoma pseudexquisita, but the taxon has been subsequently alternatively quoted as such (see, among others, VAILLANT, 1955VAILLANT, , 1956SZABÓ, 1960b;DUCKHOUSE, 1962;GEORGES, 1964;WITHERS, 1989;WITHERS & O'CONNOR, 1992;AFZAN & BELQAT, 2016), and as P. pseudoexquisita Tonnoir, 1940(see, among others, FREEMAN, 1950JUNG, 1956;SARÀ, 1958;VAILLANT, 1961VAILLANT, , 1978WAGNER, 1990;DAHL et al., 1995;KVIFTE et al., 2013;OBOŇA & JEŽEK, 2014;JEŽEK et al., 2018a).

Several new records for 22 taxa of moth flies from Italy are presented. Among them, Clytocerus (Boreoclytocerus) dalii (Eaton, 1893) and Pericoma (Pericoma) pannonica Szabó, 1960 are new to the Italian fauna. The other taxa represent new regional records, chiefly from central Apennine. Distribution of each species is provided, together with ecological and taxonomic remarks, where relevant. The name pseudoexquisita Tonnoir, 1940, in Pericoma Walker, 1856, is found to be an incorrect subsequent spelling, hence unavailable. The correct original spelling is pseudexquisita Tonnoir, 1940.

New faunistic data from the northern Hercynian Mountains and adjacent localities (Czech Republic) collected mostly at 52 sites in 2004-2010 are presented. Altogether, 88 species of moth flies (adults) of 38 genera (approximately 49% of all species of the family registered from the Czech Republic) are known to occur in this area. Twenty of these species were classified in the national Red List 2005 of threatened invertebrates and 14 are nationally scarce, suitable for further monitoring. Katamormia bezzii (Salamanna, 1983) and Berdeniella longispinosa (Vaillant, 1985) are new for Bohemia. In the appendix, the updated checklist of family Psychodidae is given for the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Here we present first records of three moth fly species in the Czech Republic (Katamormia bezzii Salamanna, 1983, Panimerus goodi Vaillant & Withers, 1992 and Pneumia fonticola (Szabó, 1960)), increasing the total number of Czech moth fly species to 179. Katamormia bezzii represents the first finding outside of Italy, while P. goodi is only the second record outside of its type locality (Ireland), as is Peripsychoda zbytka Ježek, 2004 (Bohemia or.) and Pneumia kabelaki Omelková & Ježek, 2012 (Bílé Karpaty PLA). Jungiella (Psychocha) janiki Omelková & Ježek, 2017 has only been found at five sites (incl. the type locality) in the Bílé Karpaty Mts so far. The current number of species from the northwest part of the Czech Carpathians now totals 116. Altogether, 32 species were included in the national Red List of threatened invertebrates (Ježek 2005), with 23 species categorised as ‘nationally scarce’. Maximum alpha diversity was 61 species (71 as the sum of two seasons) at SKM OR 1 in the Skalická Morávka National Nature Monument (NNM), with maximum beta diversity also recorded at the Skalická Morávka NNM, with 82 species from three localities.

Moth flies (Diptera: Psychodidae) of the western Hercynian mountains, Sokolov open-cast coal mines and dumps (Czech Republic).-Acta Mus. Siles. Sci. Natur., 67: 193-292, 2018. Abstract: New faunistic data of Psychodidae (Diptera) from Western Bohemia are presented (266 sites explored in 1993-2010, incl. literary data). Altogether 96 species of moth flies (adults) of 36 genera (55 % of all species of the family known from the Czech Republic are known to occur in the western Hercynian mountains, Sokolov open-cast coal mines, dumps and adjacent localities. 26 of these species were classified in the national Red List 2005 of threatened invertebrates. Critically endangered species CR (14), endangered species EN (4), vulnerable species VU (8) and without a Red status so far are two species nationally scarce NS. An extreme water chemistry of some mine localities (pH, alkalinity, N-NH4 + , N-NO3-, N org., total N, total P, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cl-, SO4 2-, Mn and conductivity) in a relation to collected adults were studied. The relationship between site altitude of all localities and the number of species as well as critically endangered species is accounted.

The investigation of Psychodidae is still far from finished in the NW part of the Carpathians of the Czech Republic, only 21 species have been published in scattered papers in the past. Altogether 36 genera of moth flies and 84 species including 20 threatened or rare taxa are recorded in this study from 8 localities: 5 mountainous and 3 submountainous sites. Katamormia niesiolowskii (Wagner, 1985) and Threticus negrobovi Vaillant, 1972 are new for the fauna of the Czech Republic, Katamormia strobli Ježek, 1986 and Philosepedon (Philothreticus) soljani Krek, 1971 are new for Moravia (incl. Silesia); three species are new for the Carpathians Mts generally, and 9 for the Carpathians Mts. of the Czech Republic. The total number of moth flies in CZ is increased to 175 species. The communities of moth flies of the preserved areas and localities studied here (in contrast to Kněhyňka 2.) are among the richest sites in the Czech Republic.

Lepimormia hemiboreale sp. n. (Diptera, Psychodidae) from Estonia, Saaremaa Island, is described. The description of the species is based on Malaise trap material collected from an eutrophic spring fen in Viidumäe Nature Reserve. Lepimormia hemiboreale sp. n. is quite similar to L. georgica (Wagner, 1981), L. sibirica Jezek, 1994 and L. vardarica (Krek,1982) but the shape of aedeagus, subgenital and anal valves readily distinguish L. hemiboreale sp.n. from these. In addition to the new species, 13 moth fly species are reported for the first time from Estonia.
