Title: Geographical segregation of scale-insects (Homoptera: Coccoidea) on fruit trees and the role of host plant ranges
Author: F. Kozár
Author's address: Plant Protection Institute, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, H–1525 Budapest Pf. 102, Hungary
Abstract: Most of
the surveyed 21 scale-insect species was found only in a narrow zone of
the wide studied geographic region (Central and Eastern Europe). The host
plant resource is underexploited in the greatest part of the region.
On the base of frequency, density and the differences in microhabitat specialisation, the scale-insects may be divided to armoured and soft scale guilds, where the latter is represented by lower frequency and density.
The members of the armoured scale (Diaspididae) guild may further be divided into four geographical subguilds, as Eurosiberian, Middle- and South-European, invader and Mediterranean on the base of size of distribution, the northern limit of distribution, the frequency and the density in samples.
The total host plant range had no effect on the total size of distribution of the studied species. It was determined mostly by abiotic factors, and in the case of certain host plants, in a smaller part of distribution range, by factors determining the dynamics of the populations.

Author: W. Schawaller
Author's address: Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde, Rosenstein 1, D–70191 Stuttgart, Germany
Abstract: The species of the genus Basanus Lacordaire from continental south-eastern Asia are revised. Basanus manangensis sp.n. from Nepal and Basanus soppongensis sp.n. from Thailand are described. The genus and species characters are discussed. A key for all species of that region is provided and a species-list of the genus is added.

Title: Three new Scelioninae (Hymenoptera, Scelionidae) species from the Neotropical Region
Author: T. Megyaszai
Author's address: Budai Ézsaiás u. 9, H–4024, Debrecen, Hungary
Abstract: Three new species, Mirotelenomus ildiae sp. n., Odontacolus flavissimus sp. n., and Odontacolus szaboi sp. n. are described from Central and South America. Mirotelenomus ildiae is the first Neotropical species of the genus. Line drawings illustrate each species. A key is provided to the Neotropical species of Odontacolus Kieffer.

Title: Systematic position and generic status of Lycaena cogina Schaus, 1902: an endemic Neotropical Lycaenopsina (Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae)

Abstract: Elkalyce, gen. n., is proposed for the polyommatine lycaenid butterfly originally described as Lycaena cogina Schaus. This species, endemic to SE Brazil, has long been considered a member of the genera Everes or Leptotes, from which, however, it is quite distinct. The new genus belongs to the Lycaenopsina infratribe of the Lycaenopsis Section erected by Eliot. The taxonomic history of Lycaena cogina is discussed.
