Checklist, distribution maps, bibliography of the Hungarian Phlebotomus (Diptera: Psychodidae) fauna complementing with the climate profile of the recent sandfly distribution areas in Hungary

Attila János Trájer

Folia faunistica Slovaca 22: 7–12

Abstract: A checklist of sandflies containing 4 species from Hungary is given. The history of the scientific investigations of Phlebotomus species in Hungary was briefly reported. For each species the following data were provided: important synonyms, localities from Hungary with the reference of the publication. Distribution was mapped using the UTM system. Since climate conditions determine the distribution of sandfly species, the averages of monthly mean, maximum, minimum temperatures and the monthly precipitation values also were involved into the study. Most of the collecting sites can be found in 3 locations: in Budapest and its agglomeration, in the south-east part of Transdanubia and in the south-east part of the Great Hungarian Plain. It was found that Phlebotomus papatasi and Phlebotomus perfiliewi inhabit the coldest areas of sandfly distribution. Phlebotomus mascittii and Phlebotomus major neglectus occur in the warmer Transdanubian part of the country. The result of the cluster analysis for Hungarian occurrences of sandfly species based on the average values of monthly climatic variables showed the clear dichotomization of the north and south distribution areas. Data of monthly climatic factors of the four major distribution areas including temperature variables and monthly precipitation values is given.

Prvonález druhu Bresslauides terricola (Foissner, 1987) (Ciliophora, Colpodea) na Slovensku – cystické štádiá, en- a excystácia

First record of Bresslauides terricola (Foissner, 1987) (Ciliophora, Colpodea) in Slovakia – cystic stages, en- and excystation

Simona Benčaťová & Eva Tirjaková

Folia faunistica Slovaca 22: 31–40

Abstract: Bresslauides terricola (Foissner, 1987) Foissner, 1993 (Ciliophora, Colpodea) was found for the first time in the territory of Slovakia in a moss sample taken at the locality of Jesenské. The species was cultivated using the non-flooded Petri dish method and was grown on the salad and grain medium. Morphology of cultivated trophic cells, structure of resting and reproductive cysts were investigated, using live observation. Processes during encystation and excystation were observed in vivo under the light microscopy. We described the structure of resting and reproductive cysts. The obtained results were compared with the original and subsequent descriptions of this species. This is the first report of processes encystation and excystation (including timing of processes) of Bresslauides terricola.

Abstract: Gustáv Mauricius Reuss (1818–1861), a Slovak polymath who lived in Revúca, central Slovakia, wrote in 1853–1854 in unpublished manuscript a list of animals of the surroundings of the town of Revúca. We interpreted here Reuss’s list of 167 animal “species” from the point of view of current zoology with notes on their historical context.

VPLYV RODIČOVSKÉHO VEKU NA ZNÁŠKU MÚČIARA OBYČAJNÉHO TENEBRIO MOLITOR LINNAEUS 1758 (COLEOPTERA, TENEBRIONIDAE)

The impact of parental age on egg-laying - effective time of laying eggs Tenebrio molitor Linnaeus 1758 (Coleoptera, Tenebrionidae)

Barbara Mangová & Milan Kozánek

Folia faunistica Slovaca 22: 57–62

Abstract: The effective period of egg production is one of the important factors to set up effective model for mass rearing of this species for feed and food purposes. The main objective was to define the relationship between parental age and egg production. Under laboratory conditions, females of this species produced in average 854.68±207.45 (min.- 565.2; max.- 1257.6) eggs per female during its lifetime and in average 6.27±0.48 (min. - 5.27±4.03; max. - 8.07±4.60 eggs) per female per day at constant temperature 28°C. The production of the eggs significantly decreased with female age (p < 0.0001). Up to 80 days age, the decrease of egg production did not exceed 50 % and the average production was 8.63±1.32 eggs per female per day. Following our results, this period can be considered as the effective time of egg production. Larvae showed incubation periods of 5 to 10 days (average time was 7.42±0.07 days). During 7- 8 days 91.44% of larvae were hatched.

TAXOCENÓZY MAKROZOOBENTOSU KRASOVÝCH VYVIERAČIEK ZÁPADNÝCH KARPÁT

Taxocoenoses of benthic macroinvertebrates in the karst springs of the Western Carphatians

& Tomáš Navara

Folia faunistica Slovaca 22: 67–82

Abstract: Karst springs are considered for specific habitats in many aspects. They are characterized by a relatively stable thermal regime and high chemical stability during the year. For these specific characteristics they are considered a refugee for many rare species of fauna and flora. The aim of this study was to characterize taxonomic composition and diversity of macroinvertebrate communities in karst springs in the Western Carpathians. Totally, 36 karst springs were sampled in 6 karst areas of Slovakia. The spring habitats differed in altitude and thermal regime. Based on taxonomic composition 5 significantly different macroinvertebrate assemblage groups were separated. The typical rhithral species (e.g. Rhyacophila tristis, Dugesia gonocephala, Baetis alpinus) identified the first group – large cave springs. Species (e.g. Polycelis felina, Electrogena ujhelyi, Agapetus fuscipes) typical for intermittent habitats formed second group. Wormaldia occipitalis was indicator species for seasonal springs. Small forest springs were characterized by species, e.g. Leuctra major, Elmis latreillei and Protonemoura auberti. Neither altitude nor water temperature were detected as significant predictors of the taxonomic diversity.
