    The article describes and discusses unexpected feature of agrological structure of the moths' species assemblages on four small shelf islands in the Peter the Great Gulf (Sea of Japan, south of Russian Far East). Before insect fauna of these islands was almost unknown. The study was conducted according to standard entomological procedures of insect collecting and chorological analysis of local faunas. Statistical analysis was performed using the detrended correspondence analysis. Typification of areas was made following the principles by Gorodkov. As a result, it was found that geometrid fauna demonstrates high degree of patchiness between the islands and species richness at times lesser than in neighboring continental localities. Nevertheless, a high similarity of agrological structure of the moths inhabited the islands and the continental localities was explored. This is unexpec.. Read More»
