Records of five species embracing 211 specimens of the family Scythrididae from the islands of Socotra and Maldives in the Indian Ocean are presented. The material was collected during four trips in 2008-2010 on Socotra, and in December 2011 on the Maldives. Two new species are described: Scythris digitibasella Nupponen & Saldaitis sp. nov. from Socotra and S. atollicola Nupponen, Saldaitis & Fischer sp. nov. from the Maldives. Catascythris kebirella Amsel, 1935 and Scythris paralogella Bengtsson, 2002 are reported as new to Socotra. The known distributional range of each species is given. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press.

The status of Pelochrista maculiferana (Kennel, 1900), bona sp., comb, nov., which was until now considered a synonym of Epiblema junctanum (Herrich-Schäffer, 1856), is revised and this species, now considered a good species, is redescribed. Additionally, notes on eight poorly known species of Tortricidae from the Volgo-Ural region are provided. Lobesia subherculeana (Filipjev, 1924), Asketria lepta Falkovitsh, 1964, Eucosma pergratana (Rebel, 1914), and Dichrorampha alaicana (Rebel, 1910) are reported as new to Europe, and Eucosma medvedevi (Gerasimov, 1928), Clepsis nybomi (Hackman, 1950), and Asketria lepta Falkovitsh, 1964 as new to Russia. The adults of seven of these species and the genitalia of four of them are illustrated. Source

A list comprising 236 species in the family Gelechiidae from the southern Ural Mountains is presented. The material was collected during 1996-2007 on 21 different Finnish-Russian expeditions. The following new combinations are proposed: Caulastrocecis interstratella (Christoph, 1873) comb. n., Megacraspedus balneariellus (Chretien, 1907) comb. n., Megacraspedus fallax (Mann, 1867) comb. n., Megacraspedus lagopellus Herrich-Schaffer, 1860 comb. rev., Megacraspedus niphorrhoa (Meyrick, 1926) comb. n., Scrobipalpa adaptata (Povolný, 2001) comb. n., Scrobipalpa dorsoflava (Povolný, 1996) comb. n., Scrobipalpa notata (Povolný, 2001) comb. n. and Scrobipalpa punctata (Povolný, 1996) comb. n. Neofriseria mongolinella Piskunov, 1987 stat. rev. is raised to the species rank (from subsp. of N. sceptrophora (Meyrick, 1926)). Previously unknown females of four species are described: Megacraspedus niphorrhoa (Meyrick, 1926), Monochroa nomadella (Zeller, 1868), Ivanauskiella psamathias (Meyrick, 1891) and Filatima zagulajevi Anikin & Piskunov, 1996. Trichembola neurophanes (Meyrick, 1926) syn. n. is shown to be a synonym of Megacraspedus fallax (Mann, 1867). Three separate species complexes are briefly discussed: Stomopteryx mongolica Povolny, 1975, Stomopteryx remissella (Zeller, 1847) and Aristotelia subericinella (Duponchel, 1843); each of them seems to contain unresolved taxonomic problems. Three species are reported for the first time from Europe: Neofriseria mongolinella Piskunov, 1987, Stomopteryx mongolica Povolný, 1975, and Anarsia sibirica Park & Ponomarenko, 1996. The following species are newly recorded from Russia: Apatetris kinkerella (Snellen, 1876), Catatinagma trivittellum Rebel, 1903, Megacraspedus balneariellus (Chrétien, 1907), Megacraspedus niphorrhoa (Meyrick, 1926), Chrysoesthia falkovitshi Lvovsky & Piskunov, 1989, Metzneria diffusella Englert, 1974, Ptocheuusa paupella (Zeller, 1847), Ptocheuusa abnormella (Herrich-Schäffer, 1854), Monochroa parvulata Gozmány, 1957, Eulamprotes plumbella (Heinemann, 1870), Aroga aristotelis (Millière, 1876), Filatima transsilvanella Z. Kovács & S. Kovács, 2001, Scrobipalpa adaptata (Povolný, 2001), Scrobipalpa dorsoflava (Povolný, 1996), Scrobipalpa halonella (Herrich- Scháffer, 1854), Scrobipalpa lutea Povolný, 1977, Scrobipalpa magnificella Povolný, 1967, Scrobipalpa notata (Povolný, 2001), Scrobipalpa plesiopicta (Povolný, 1969), Scrobipalpa pulchra (Povolný, 1967), Scrobipalpa punctata (Povolný, 1996), Scrobipalpula diffluella (Frey, 1870), Caryocolum amaurella (M. Hering, 1924), Caryocolum repentis Huemer & Luquet, 1992, Syncopacma incognitana Gozmány, 1957, Syncopacma azosterella (Herrich-Schaffer, 1855), Syncopacma polychromella (Rebel, 1902), Brachmia procursella Rebel, 1903.
