Microlepidoptera from Mecsek Mountains

Microlepidoptera Pannoniae meridionalis, VI.
A Mecsek Microlepidoptera katalógusa
(Lepidoptera)
Catalogue of Microlepidoptera from Mecsek Mountains, SW Hungary (Lepidoptera)


FAZEKAS IMRE

Abstract
This is the first catalogue of Microlepidoptera in the Mecsek Mts. This Hungarian mountain range has a somewhat Mediterranean climate. Data on the presence and distribution of 879 species are given. Data in earlier publications are critically examined. The presence of species placed in square brackets requires confirmation. The families involved are characterized in detail. Special comments are made on Tosirips magyarus (Tortricidae) and Capperia fusca (Pterophoridae), which are new to Hungary.

Summary
The Mecsek Mountains in the south of Hungary are of medium height. They cover an area of 350 square kilometres, and the tallest mountain reaches an altitude of 682 metres. The geology of the region is highly complicated, with limestones dominant, but also with areas of volcanic rocks. The climate is of a submediterranean character. In the vegetation, many species with a Mediterranean distribution can be found. On the south sides of the mountains warmth liking oak-forests predominate (Potentillo micranthae-Quercetum, Asperulo taurinae-Carpinetum), and in the northern slopes there are beech forests (Helleboro odoro-Fagetum), with smaller patches of Inulo spiraeifolio-Quercetum pubescentis.
The biogeography of the Mecsek Mts is extremely difficult to define in the context of that of the Pannonian region in general. It is the area in which the Mediterranean influence prevails most vigorously. Search for the moths of the mountain range began in the late 18th Century, but the first publications only appeared in the 1970’s. The present author has devoted 30 of his years to research in the area, and as a result has confirmed the presence of 49 families and 879 species in the mountain range. The localities in which every species has been found are given here. The species in square brackets were either misidentified or their presence remains unconfirmed, without supporting voucher material. Some of these species, including Jordanita budensis (Speyer & Speyer, 1858), Zygaena punctum Ochsenheimer, 1808, Zygaena cynarae (Esper, 1789), Zygaena laeta (Hübner, 1790), Paranthrene tabaniformis (Rottemburg, 1775), Synanthedon spuleri (Fuchs, 1908) and Synansphecia muscaeformis (Esper, 1873) have probably become extinct in the mountain range
Some species are known to occur nowhere else in Hungary, and are only in the Mecsek area: Capperia fusca, Jordanita fazekasi, Phalonidia gilvicommana, Gynnidomorpha luridana, Cochylis flaviciliana, Tosirips magyarus, Ancylis roscidella, Pyrausta castalis. Tosirips magyarus and Capperia fusca are new species to Hun-gary.
A single specimen of a totally unknown species of Tortricidae turned up from the mountain range: Mecsek Mts, Kárász, 24.08.1984. leg et Fazekas, No. 2301. The genitalia proved to be unlike those of any other European species, or indeed from anywhere in Eurasia. It is probably an undescribed species. The wing venation and the genitalia indicate that it is a member of the genus Aethes. In size and wing pattern, the new species is most like Aethes kindermanniana (Treitschke, 1830) and Ae. conversana (Walsingham, 1908), but the genitalia differ sharply from those of the former species. The primary colour of the forewing is white, the cross lines olive-drab, with yellowish scales. The hindwing is pale olive-drab. Unfortunately, the head was damaged, so the antenna and labial palpus cannot be characterised. The species will be described fully in a later study, but it is figured here.
At present, there is hardly any knowledge of the families Nepticulidae, Psychidae, Gracillariidae, Elachistidae, Coleophoridae, Gelechiidae and Tortricidae which occur in the region, and there is need for much thorough research in these groups. The study characterizes the families in detail, and notes are provided on all the more important species.

Capperia fusca (Hofmann, 1898) is a new species in Hungary
(Lepidoptera: Pterophoridae)


By Imre Fazekas
(2007-07-10.)

The species was missing till now from Hungary. It was recruited on more place in the neighbouring countries, but everywhere rare and local.
New data from Hungary: Hungary, Mecsek Mts, Komló, prep. Fazekas No. 3174.
Habitat in Hungary: Illyrian beech and oak-hornbeam woodlands.

Biology: The hostplant is Stachys alpina, (?S. cassia), Marrubium vulgare. The moth flies in mid-May to mid-June and mid-July to Mid-August.

Distribution: Kazachstan, Russia, Turkey, the Balkan Peninsula, Central Europe,Italy, France, Belgium, Spain.
