Editorial: Under this major title, totally 88 regional reports, a generic list of the pterygot insects and a bibliographical evaluation are published in this  number of the Priamus (supplement).  The   Project “Entomofauna of the World” (except Lepidoptera) has been carrying out by the researchers of the Cesa for some years. The temporary results of the reports submitted here are based upon not only the literary data, but also the field results of the authors’ expeditions to several states realized in earlier decades. In each report submitted, faunistical, taxonomical and nomenclatural information are revised as far as possible, updated accordingly with footnotes. References to the faunal information of some states published in recent years are also mentioned in the related reports.  The following states are newly  added to the research program on the pterygot fauna within the frame of entomofaunal surveys of the Cesa: Austria, Bulgaria, Creta, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Romania, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine in Europe; Afghanistan, China, Cyprus, Israel, India, Iraq, Jordan, Japan, Kazachstan, Kirgizistan, Lebanon, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Tadjikistan, Turkmenistan, Taiwan, Uighur Ili, Uzbekistan, and Yemen in Asia; Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru, Surinam, United States, and Venezuela in America. Recording the faunal data of these states mentioned above are very at the beginning. Comparatively more advanced faunal lists belong to Turkey and some Middle East countries in Asia.  Concerning the order Lepidoptera, results of the Project Lepidoptera of  the Old World (LOW), will be published in the next issue of this serial. Finally, this not an ordinary but a planned, long-termed study. If it is needed, the Cesa projects with their published reports should be compared by the readers with the equivalent attempts only.

An illustrated synopsis and keys to afrotropical genera of the epifamily Dolichopodoidae (Diptera: Empidoidea). Cent. ent. Stud., Priamus (Supplement) 24: 1-98, 305 figs.

The use of the epifamily rank Dolichopodoidae (type genus Dolichopus Latreille, 1796) is proposed for the Dolichopodidae s. lat., incorporating paraphyletic families Dolichopodidae and Microphoridae and subfamily Parathalassiinae incertae sedis that shares features of both Dolichopodidae and Microphoridae. Additionally, the use of the epifamily rank Empidoidae (type genus Empis Linnaeus, 1758) is proposed for the rest families of the superfamily Empidoidea. A brief synopsis of 84 genera of Dolichopodidae s.s. and 3 genera of Microphoridae and Parathalassiinae is given along with illustration of habitus of some typical and rare afrotropical species. Revised keys to afrotropical genera of the family Dolichopodidae (Diptera) are compiled. Illustration of typical characters of most afrotropical genera is given. Dactylonotus meuffelsi Grichanov, 1998, is placed in synonymy to D. rudebecki Vanschuytbroeck, 1960 (syn. nov.). The following recombinations are also proposed: Amblypsilopus prysjonesi (Meuffels et Grootaert, 2007), comb. nov., Bickeliolus gerlachi (Meuffels et Grootaert, 2007), comb. nov., Lichtwardtia melanesiana (Bickel, 2008), comb. nov.

Within the frame of the Entomofauna project of the Cesa, the development stages of the present study entitled “Diptera of Turkey” are briefly explained. Studying conditions of the authors in the remote areas in East Turkey, and in the laboratory before and after the earthquake 2011, as well as the present situation are discussed. Concerning the preparation of the present study, evaluating the literary data, field information, observations, photograph archive and collection of the Cesa are explained. Using the codes created for Cesa publications in the mapping is also mentioned. Evaluation of the images of the Diptera, as well as collected specimens within the frame of mutual collaboration, and its present situation is also discussed. Present situation of the dipterological works in Turkey as “a big picture” is discussed.  Concerning the text,  database programs used, and their temporary outputs are evaluated.  Totally 995 evaluated publications are listed. Their contents from various scientific points are classified and the necessary references are shown. The main text is given as three different lists, i.e., family-, genus-group names, and specific list of Turkish Diptera. Valid names together with their synonyms are presented alphabetically. Opinions on the authorships are declared.  Totally,  2992 Diptera species, belong to 963 genera and 72 families are listed.

Kemal,M. & E.Seven, 2013. Studies on the fauna and ecology of the Geometridae (Lepidoptera) in Şirvan district (Siirt Province, SE Turkey) [in Turkish with english abstract]. Cent. ent. Stud., Priamus (Suppl.) 29:  vi+1-41, figs.

 

This study was realized by the authors on the fauna and the ecology of the Geometridae of Şirvan by day and by night between April 2008 and April 2011. Totally 67 species, belonging to 41 genera of  5 subfamilies were recorded in the studying area. For this purpose, authors studied 9 different types of habitats between 640-1800m above sea level, and in different seasons. Results were evaluated in the report from the faunistical and ecological standpoints. Faunistically, Drepanopterula limaria (Ennominae) is new to the fauna of Turkey. The rest of  the recorded species are new to Şirvan district and Siirt province. Ecological results are based upon the regional plant cover, topographical features,  and the climatic conditions. Rare and little known geometrid species appear mainly in early spring. This group of species is represented by 47% of the whole geometrid species of the region. Investigations revealed that the species diversity is represented at highest value between the altitudes 800-1000m. Separately, total 139 plant species of 132 genera in 53 families were mentioned in this report as new to Şirvan district.
