Sensational Find Species Trogoderma Variabile (Dermestidae) in the Fruit of Astragalus: Astragalus Demetrii in The Republic of the Kara-chay-Cherkessia (Russia)

Pushkin Sergey Victorovich, Belous Victor Nikolaevich

This study examines Astragalus in the natural habitats of southern Russia (Republic Karachay-Cherkessia) for the first time. In the fruits of Astragalus, a species of Trogoderma is found - this is the first evidence of the possibility of harming leguminous crops in a natural habitat. There are no reliable literary sources about this, although the carpet beetles have been thoroughly studied.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. Papers on non-insect groups are no longer accepted. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Call for Papers
Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research. This has become the need felt in scientific research due to the emphasis on intra-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary approach.
