Takecallis arundinariae (Essig 1917) is a new record for the Hungarian aphid fauna was collected from Phyllostachys iridescens (C. Y. Yao and S. Y. Chen 1980) bamboo species. All adult specimens collected in October and November were alatae or L3–L4 nymphs bearing wing initiatives. Takecallis arundinariae is a medium-sized pale yellow aphid with a series of imbricate, conspicuous, elongate dark spots on the abdominal tergites, antennae are longer than body. Takecallis taiwanus (Takahashi 1926) nymphs were present on P. iridescens, in Debrecen on the beginning of June. By mid June the nymphs developed alatae. T. taiwanus is medium-sized green aphid. Nymphs are dark green with rows of black spines. Alatae bear on abdominal tergites I–II pair of larger imbricated tubercles with setae. Tubercles on abdominal tergites III–IV are smaller. From tergite V and on the following segments tubercles are small, inconspicuous, but pair of setae is present.
Bazzania hainanensis L.-P. Zhou et L. Zhang (Marchantiophyta) is recorded for the first time in India from the State of Mizoram (Myanmar border). It was earlier known from its type locality in China only. This is distinct amongst all earlier known species of the genus from Indian regions in having entire to weakly 2–3-lobed leaves, lobes when present, small tooth-like (1-2 cells long), as it has been described and illustrated here.
A survey of scale insects was carried out in Ankara, in Middle Anatolia, Turkey from 2001 to 2003. Twenty-three species belonging to 5 families were recorded. Eleven of these species are new record for Turkey, namely; Exaeretopus agropyri (Hadzibejli), Exaeretopus formiceticola Newstead, Exaeretopus tritici Williams, Chortinaspis subterraneus (Lindinger), Diaspidiotus elaeagni (Borchsenius), Diaspidiotus sulci Balachowsky, Rhizaspidiotus canariensis (Lindinger), Acanthococcus devoniensis (Green), Acanthococcus tavignani Goux, Acanthococcus variabilis Goux, Neomargarodes festucae Archangelskaya and Porphyrophora minuta Borchsenius.
The present faunistic study was performed in East Azarbaijan province, northwest of Iran, in 2015–2016. A total of eleven species belonging to four genera of the subfamily Curculioninae were studied. Rhinusa eversmanni Rosenschoeld, 1838 is recorded for the first time from Iran. Photos of adult habitus of the newly recorded species along with a key to the Iranian species of the snout beetles identified in this study are provided.
