Abstract

New data on the distribution of 101 species from 16 Heteroptera families in the East Kazakhstan Region of the Republic of Kazakhstan are reported. Twelve species are recorded for the first time from the study area: Nabis nigrovittatus steppensis (Kerzhner, 1981) (Nabidae), Deraeocoris ater (Jakovlev, 1889), Orthops mutans (Stål, 1858), Oncotylus setulosus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1837) (Miridae), Dictyla humuli (Fabricius, 1794) (Tingidae), Coranus aethiops Jakovlev, 1893 (Reduviidae), Aradus crenaticollis R.F. Sahlberg, 1848 (Aradidae), Horvathiolus superbus (Pollish, 1781), Acompus rufipes (Wolff, 1804), Acanthosoma denticaudum (Jakovlev, 1880) (Acanthosomatidae), Rubiconia peltata Jakovlev, 1890, and Eurydema fieberi Fieber, 1837 (Pentatomidae). Based on the latest data, the fauna of true bugs of the East Kazakhstan Region comprises 482 species from 25 families.

Introduction

The East Kazakhstan Region occupies vast territory in the eastern part of the Republic of Kazakhstan with an area of 283000 square km. Its relief is a complex combination of the plains, small hills (“melkosopochnik”), and mountain massifs in the north-east and east (South Altai, Tarbagatai, and Saur) – Figs 14. The regional river system belongs to the basin of the largest water body of the area – the Irtysh River and its tributaries, as well as to the Lake Balkhash basin. The largest lakes in the area are Zaisan, Markakol’, Alakol’, and Sasykkol’. The climate is sharply continental because of the position of the territory in the center of the Asian continent far from large sea basins (Sidorenko 1957). The insect fauna of East Kazakhstan is highly diverse: its includes the well-represented steppe fauna, the taiga and intrazonal meadow and forest species penetrate the area from the north, and the desert and semi-desert fauna is quite developed in the south.

Heteroptera in Kazakhstan have been investigated for a long time by the specialists of the Institute of Zoology of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Almaty, and of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, where voluminous collections on this group have been accumulated. A valuable contribution to the knowledge of the Heteroptera in East Kazakhstan was made by a scientist of the Kazakhstan Institute of Zoology R.B. Asanova (Asanova 1974, 1986, 1996), who gave the first synopsis of the distribution of 439 species from 25 families in East Kazakhstan. Later, P.A. Esenbekova (Esenbekova 2007, 2011, 2013) recorded from this region 219 species of 19 families.

In this paper we provide data on 101 species of 16 heteropterous families based on the collections made in the East Kazakhstan Region by the students and professors of the Altai State University, Barnaul.

Material and methods

Field research of the heteropterans in the East Kazakhstan Region was carried out by students of the Altai State University in 2016–2019 under the guidance of Professor R.V. Yakovlev (Fig. 5). In the northern part of the region, V.V. Rudoi investigated the surroundings of the Shemonaikha Town in 2016 and 2018. In Southern Altay, G.M. Amanbayeva, A.U. Gabdulina, G.N. Kuftina and E.A. Nepaeva collected bugs on the Sarym-Saktyi in the Katon-Karagai National Nature Park in 2016 and 2017. Expedition of the Altai State University worked in 1918 on Kalbinskii Mt. Range, Tarbagatai and Saur (R.V. Yakovlev, V.V. Doroshkin, A.E. Naidenov and V.V. Rudoi), and in 2019, at the Lake Zaisan and in Tarbagatai (R.V. Yakovlev, A.A. Kechaikin, A.A. Fomichev and V.V. Rudoi).

Conclusion

The heteropterous fauna of Kazakhstan is highly diverse and comprises, according to published data (Catalogue… 1995–2006; Esenbekova 2013), 1250 species in 411 genera of 35 families. Kazakhstan scientists (Asanova 1974, 1986; Esenbekova, Bekmurzaev 2007; Esenbekova, Kemelkhanova 2008; Esenbekova 2011, 2013; Esenbekova, Ashimova 2011) reported 439 species of 25 families from East Kazakhstan, which implies insufficient knowledge of this important group in the region, given that it includes agriculture pests, some of them dangerous.

Data on the Heteroptera of East Kazakhstan are scattered in a number of taxonomic revisions and monographs on the fauna of the former USSR. In the Saldidae, Cobben (1985) described the subspecies Macrosaldula oblonga acetabularis Cobben, 1985 from the Saur foothills, and Vinokurov (2009), Teloleuca altaica Vinokurov, 2009 from South Altai. These authors also have recorded Macrosaldula jakowleffii (Reuter, 1891) from the Saur (Cobben, 1985), and M. simulans Cobben, 1985, from South Altai (Vinokurov, 2014).

Kerzhner (1976) and Elov (1977) report for this territory in their publications on the flower bugs of Kazakhstan and Middle Asia Anthocoris limbatus Fieber, 1836 (Shamonaikha; Bukhtarma River), A. nemorum (Linnaeus, 1761) (Katon-Karagai; Lake Markakol’), Temnostethus reduvinus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1850) (Saur), Orius niger Wolff, 1804 and O. horvathi (Reuter, 1884), Xylocoris tesquorum Kerzhner & Elov, 1976 (Burna, Kaldzhir mouth, Zaisan).

Of the Miridae, Eumecotarsus breviceps (Reuter, 1878) and Criocoris quadrimaculatus (Fallén, 1807) were mentioned (Kerzhner 1962, 1984) and two Orthocephalus species – O. bivittatus Fieber, 1864 and O. vittipennis (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1835) (Namyatova, Konstantinov 2009). Several species, some of them new to science, have been found in the Saur Mt. Range: Phytocoris sauricus Muminov, 1998; Tuponia soongorica Drapolyuk, 1980; Atomophora maculosa Reuter, 1903; Solenoxyphus candidatus (Reuter, 1879); S. lepidus (Puton, 1874); Pleuroxonotus stysi Konstantinov, 2008; Ethelastia liturata (Fieber, 1858) (Drapolyuk 1980; Muminov 1998; Konstantinov 2000, 2008a, b, c).

Data on three species of the lace bugs (Tingidae) – Galeatus spinifrons (Fallén, 1807), Physatocheila putshkovi Golub 1976 and Ph. distinguenda Jakovlev, 1880 – were published by Golub (1974, 1976). P.V. Putshkov (1982, 1987) has recorded five species of the assassin bugs (Reduviidae): Empicoris culiciformis (De Geer, 1773); Coranus aethiops Jakovlev, 1893; C. contraris Reuter, 1881; C. laticeps Wagner, 1952 and C. woodroffei P.V. Putshkov, 1982. Based on the collection of the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, a dangerous cereal pest, the Sunn pest Eurygaster integriceps Puton, 1881 of the family Scutelleridae was recorded from southern East Kazakhstan (Neimorovets et al. 2006).

In this paper, data on the distribution of 101 widespread water and land horto-, thamno- and dendrobiont species from 16 Heteroptera families in the East Kazakhstan Region are reported.

Twelve species are recorded for the first time from the study area: Nabis nigrovittatus steppensis Kerzh. (Nabidae), Deraeocoris ater Jak., Orthops mutans Stål, Oncotylus setulosus H.-S. (Miridae), Dictyla humuli F. (Tingidae), Coranus aethiops Jak. (Reduviidae), Aradus crenaticollis R. F. Sahlb. (Aradidae), Horvathiolus superbus Poll., Acompus rufipes Wolff (Lygaeidae), Acanthosoma denticaudum Jak. (Acanthosomatidae), Rubiconia peltata Jak., Eurydema fieberi Fieb. (Pentatomidae).

Thus, the heteropterous fauna of the East Kazakhstan Region, based on the published data and those given in this paper, comprises 482 species of 25 families.
