A tabular check-list of 40 species of the genus Carpelimus from China and Taiwan is given. Four species, C. nepalicus, C. pappi, C. padangensis and C. burckhardti, are recorded from China for the first time. The distribution of the species in the Palaeacrtic and Oriental regions of China is discussed.

The following new synonymies are established: Coprophilus (Zonyptilus) pentatoma Fauvel, 1897 = C. (Z.) longicornis Bernhauer, 1903, syn. n. = C. (Z.) bimaculatus Luze, 1904, syn. n. = C. (Z.) rufitarsis Kashcheev, 1999, syn. n. Copyright © 2017 Magnolia Press

Syntomium japonicum Watanabe et Shibata, 1960 and Coprophilus impressus Sharp, 1889 are firstly recorded from Russia (Kunashir Island). New synonymy is established: Coprophilus sibiricus Bernhauer, 1915 = Coprophilus adachii Watanabe et Shibata, 1961, syn. n. © Far Eastern entomologist (Far East. entomol.).

A comparative morphological study on Hassall’s corpuscles of different maturity in vertebrate animals and humans with consideration of the age was carried out by light microscopy. It was found that the number and size of Hassall’s corpuscles of different maturity depend on age, as well as the environmental conditions. Conclusions on the functional role of Hassall’s corpuscles were drawn based on the present study. © 2016, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The paper presents the results of studying Russia's geopolitical interests in regions of the former Soviet Union, which form the southern section of its state border, i.e., in the Caucasian geopolitical region (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia), in partially recognized states (Abkhazia and South Ossetia), and in the Central Asian geopolitical region (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Turkmenistan). The military-political, territorial, social, economic, and environmental interests of Russia in these regions are identified and considered. Their qualitative and quantitative evaluations are given, and their importance in shaping the regional priorities of Russian foreign policy is geographically justified. Russia's place in foreign trade for each geopolitical region is identified. The paper's focus is on the dynamics of geopolitical interests in the post-Soviet period. Based on the results of rating of Russia's geopolitical interests in each region, types of post-Soviet countries are identified with respect to their foreign policy towards Russia, i.e., potential allies, hypothetical opponents, and neutral countries. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2014.

The article presents a description of the new species, Thinobius (s. str.) endroedy, from Namibia. The lecto- type, T. (s. str.) iridiventris Bernhauer 1934, is designated, its redescription is given. A key to the identification of the genus Thinobius from tropical Africa is given. © 2015 M. Yu. Gildenkov.
