The paper contains data on the fauna of the Lepidoptera families Erebidae (excluding subfamilies Lymantriinae and Arctiinae) and Noctuidae of the Saur Mountains (East Kazakhstan). The check list includes 216 species. The map of collecting localities is presented.

Key words: Lepidoptera, Noctuidae, Erebidae, Asia, Kazakhstan, Saur, fauna.


The fauna of noctuoid moths (the families Erebidae and Noctuidae) of Kazakhstan is still poorly studied. Only the fauna of West Kazakhstan has been studied satisfactorily (Gorbunov 2011). On the faunas of other parts of the country, only fragmentary data are published (Lederer, 1853; 1855; Aibasov & Zhdanko 1982; Hacker & Peks 1990; Lehmann et al. 1998; Benedek & Balint 2009; 2013; Korb 2013). In contrast to the West Kazakhstan, the fauna of noctuid moths of East Kazakhstan was studied inadequately. Until now, only some reports are presented in several publications (Bubnova, 1980; 1982; Volynkin & Matov, 2011; Volynkin & al., 2014; Volynkin & al., 2015).

The Saur is a mountain massif on the border between Eastern Kazakhstan and China south-eastwards from Zaisan Lake and southwards from the Kara-Irtysh River valley. It is bordered by the Zaisan depression in the north, and the Chilikty depression separates it from the Tarbagatai Mountain massif in the south-west. In the west the Saur is in contact with the small Manrak Ridge, and with the Saikan Ridge (China, Xinjiang) in the north-east. The Saur stretches 140 km from the west to the east, and its highest point is the Mustau Mt. (3816 m). The biogeographic affiliation of the Saur is controversial. The most traditional opinion is that biota of the Saur and Tarbagatai massifs have intermediate positions between biotas of the mountains of Siberia and Central Asia (Yakovlev & Guskova 2012; Rubin & Yakovlev, 2013).

The first collecting of Lepidoptera in the Saur Mts. was made by J. Haberhauer in 1877-1878. The Noctuidae and Erebidae materials collected by Haberhauer are deposited in the Staudinger's collection (Naturkunde Museum, NKMB, Berlin, Germany), and has been published by Staudinger (1881; 1882). In the beginning of the 20th century, two expeditions by S. Tshetverikov and P. Sushkin in 1904 and A. Jacobson in 1910 collected an extensive Noctuidae and Erebidae material. Specimens collected on these

trips are deposited in the collection of Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (ZISP, St. Petersburg, Russia), and mainly are not published. Only some Drasteria materials has been published by O. Iohn (1910). The senior author of the present paper revised the materials deposited in the ZISP collection as well as the modern materials collected in the Saur Mts. by R.V. Yakovlev in July 2011 (deposited in the private collection of Anton Volynkin, AVB, Barnaul, Russia). In 2011 the second author collected an extensive Noctuidae and Erebidae material in the Saur Mts. within the framework of the international project 'Forest regeneration and biodiversity at the forest-steppe border ofthe Altay and Khangay Mountains under contrasting developments of livestock numbers in Kazakhstan and Mongolia' (material deposited in AVB and the private collection of Sergey Titov, STP, Pavlodar, Kazakhstan). In addition, authors of the paper collected an extensive Noctuidae and Erebidae material 2013 (deposited in the private collections of authors). All these materials are a basis of the check list presented below and comprising 216 species.

In the present paper we have accepted the classification proposed in Noctuidae Europaeae, Vol. 13 (Yela & al., 2011) with some changes (Troubridge, 2008), but the subfamilies Lymantriinae and Arctiinae are not included in the present study.


The moths were collected using ultraviolet and mercury light-traps. Photos of imago where taken using the camera Nikon D3100/AF-S Nikkor, 18-55 mm, and processed in Adobe Photoshop CS4® software.
