A faunistic survey was carried out in order to monitor the occurrence of phytoseiid species in 82 vineyards located in 6 distinctive wine regions between 2004 and 2009. We have registered the habitat of the species present, and also identified the most widespread and abundant species which are the most important in limiting phytophagous mites. Twenty phytoseiid species as well as 7 species belonging to other families of the order Mesostigmata have been identified, out of which
has been the most dominant in all wine regions tested. Although the occurrence of 15 phytoseiid species has been known in Hungary before, 7 out of them have been collected in vineyards for the first time. A further 3 species have not been included in Hungarian faunistic works before this study. The species belonging to the families Ameroseiidae, Podocinidae and Ascidae are all new in vineyards, and
(Koch, 1839) has been collected in the Hungarian fauna for the first time.
A faunistic survey of leaf beetles (Chrysomelidae) was accomplished in Tehran, Alborz and Qazvin provinces of Iran, during 2012 and 2013. In total, 30 species belong to five subfamilies (Chrysomelinae, Cryptocephalinae, Galerucinae, Cassidinae and Criocerinae) and 22 genera were identified.
This paper deals with the faunistic surveys on Eulophidae (Hymenoptera, Chalcidoidea) of northwestern Iran. In total 17 species from 12 genera and 3 subfamilies (Entedoninae, Eulophinae, Tetrastichinae) were collected and identified. Chrysocharis pubens Delucchi, Pediobius eubius (Walker), Dicladocerus westwoodi Westwood, Miotropis unipuncta (Nees), Sympiesis viridula (Thomson), Aprostocetus pygmaeus (Zetterstedt) and Neotrichoporoides viridimaculatus (Fullaway) are new records for the fauna of Iran.
Whiteflies (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae) are some of the most potentially detrimental pests for agricultural crops and the ornamental plant industry in Iran. The present paper deals with the faunistic survey of whiteflies in two provinces of Iran, Khorasan and Semnan. During the survey a total of 16 species from 12 genera were collected and identified. Distribution data are given for the species.

From over 1250 extant species of the order Chiroptera, 25 and 28 are known to occur in Germany and Hungary, respectively. Close to 350 samples originating from 28 bat species (17 from Germany, 27 from Hungary) were screened for the presence of adenoviruses (AdVs) using a nested PCR that targets the DNA polymerase gene of AdVs. An additional PCR was designed and applied to amplify a fragment from the gene encoding the IVa2 protein of mastadenoviruses. All German samples originated from organs of bats found moribund or dead. The Hungarian samples were excrements collected from colonies of known bat species, throat or rectal swab samples, taken from live individuals that had been captured for faunistic surveys and migration studies, as well as internal organs of dead specimens. Overall, 51 samples (14.73%) were found positive. We detected 28 seemingly novel and six previously described bat AdVs by sequencing the PCR products. The positivity rate was the highest among the guano samples of bat colonies. In phylogeny reconstructions, the AdVs detected in bats clustered roughly, but not perfectly, according to the hosts’ families (Vespertilionidae, Rhinolophidae, Hipposideridae, Phyllostomidae and Pteropodidae). In a few cases, identical sequences were derived from animals of closely related species. On the other hand, some bat species proved to harbour more than one type of AdV. The high prevalence of infection and the large number of chiropteran species worldwide make us hypothesise that hundreds of different yet unknown AdV types might circulate in bats.
