M.L. Danilevsky: regularly updated catalogue and lists of Cerambycoidea of various Palaearctic regions
The current "Catalogue of Palaearctic Cerambycoidea" is now a main source for all other lists presented here. It was arranged on the base of published Cerambycidae Catalogue in the 6th volume of "Catalogue of Palaearctic Colreoptera" edited by Lobl & Smetana (2010: 84-334 ). The abbreviations of geographical divisions are same as in the Catalogue by Lobl & Smetana (2010), but Transcaucasian republics (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) are returned to Asia. The eastern limits of Europe are same as in 6th volume (Lobl & Smetana, 2010: 11, 13) with the borderline along Ural Ridge and Ural River, while the whole territories of Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk regions as well as Orenburg Region were included in Europe in the previous volumes (here south and east areas of Orenburg Region behind Ural River are treated as West Siberia - "WS"). Besides many misprints and contradictions connected with inadequate joining of the parts by several authors were fixed. Many taxonomical positions and geographical data were corrected or updated. Most of such correction and additions were published in a series of articles (Danilevsky, 2010e, 2011h, 2012j, 2012k, 2012l, 2012m, 2013a, 2013c, 2014b). All alterations are marked with red. The Catalogue is being regularly updated about once a month or more often with newly published names, new taxonomy modifications and new geographical data (sometimes not published yet). The fixation of the misprints of published version is going on. The references, placed at the end of the list, includes new publications and corrected old (with red fragments). Several new names and taxonomy news are equipped with numbered remarks shown in other file: "Remarks to Palaearctic Catalogue".
- The list of Cerambycidae of the former USSR is the oldest among available here. It was created on the base of Russian publications by Lobanov, Danilevsky & Murzin (1981, 1982) with traditional divisions of European Russia in north, centre and south after Russian publication of the "green" "Key to the Insects of the European Part of Russia" (1965, v. 2, Coleoptera, by Gur'eva & Kryzhanovsky - red.). The list includes information on big foreign areas. It is accompanied by a file with numerous remarks and a file with references.
- The list of European Cerambycidae is based on the publication by Althoff & Danilevsky (1997) and contains records on each European country (with several new). Europen Russia is accepted up to Kuma River southwards (without Ciscaucasia). Other divisions of Europen Russia are same as in the list of USSR. The list is also accompanied by a file with numerous remarks and a file with references (as well as never published Cerambycidae list of Mongolia).
- The list of Russia with south republics (Ukraine, Moldavia, states of Transcaucasia and Middle Asia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia) was made as a base for the Catalogue by Lobl & Smetana on corresponding territories. So, all geographical abbreviations are here same as in the Catalogue: "E: CT" includes Asian parts of Cheliabinsk and Sverdlovsk regions; "E: ST" includes the whole Orenburg Regions. So, it is now just an extract from the Palaearctic Catalogue, but is very useful for easy references on the composition of Cerambycidae fauna of certain republics, as well as certain faunas were never revised.
- Cerambycidae list of Russia contains smaller divisions of the country than others. The geographical divisions of Russia are based here on the limits of Palaearctic Catalogue, but Caucasus and Ciscaucasia (southwards Kuma River) are separated from ST - "south of European Russia"; Altay is separated from West Siberia; 3 areas are separated from "Far East": South-East Siberia with Amur and Khabarovsk Regions, Sakhalin Island and South Kuriles (mostly Kunashir Is.), but several areas are joined to East Siberia: Chukotka, Kamchatka, Magadan Region, North Kuriles. Besides each Russian taxon is supplied with abbreviations of all countries where it occurs according to the Palaearctic Catalogue.
