    Description

    This translation, based on a list of Russian names of insects and mites by W. Laux and G. Schmidt and published in 1979, is designed to assist English-speaking entomologists and other biologists in identifying insect species from their Russian vernacular names as listed in Soviet Union journals. The translation consists of three lists: (1) species arranged taxonomically (orders, families, genera, and species); (2) scientific (Latin) binomials (genus and species) arranged alphabetically; and (3) translated common names in alphabetical sequence. Each list contains 1,345 entries, and each entry can be matched by page number to the original Cyrillic spelling in the publication by Laux and Schmidt.
