.Alber.s Equal Conica for the USSR., 9, 1001, 7, 100, 0, 44, 68, 0, 0.

Basic content:

Vector map, which consists of 2 thematic layers. Area of distribution and zone of damage are shown by polygons.

Accuracy of the classifier:

Within the area of distribution, the zone of low damage is established. Threshold of harmfulness of the C. pallidactylus on cabbage seedlings is 1-3 adults per 1 plant after infestation of about 10% of seedlings (Shurovenkov & Chenkin, 1984).

Method of map production:

Data from the open publications are used for allocation of area and zone of pest damage. Map of the area is based also on the analysis of the collection of the Zoological Institute RAS. The localities of the species are marked in coordinate system on blank geographical map by standard means of GIS-technologies. In the former USSR, the area includes Baltic States (Silfverberg, 1992), most of the European part of Russia northward to Leningrad Region and Karelia (Korotyaev, 1982; Korotyaev, 1989; Silfverberg, 1992; Isaev, 1994; Prasolov, 2005), Belarus (Ioannisiani, 1972), Ukraine (Petrukha & Globova, 1974), Moldova (Poiras, 1998), the Caucasus (Korotyaev & Cholokava, 1989; Arzanov, 1989; Ismailova, 1993). Nidal distribution in the area is characteristic of the species. The zone of low damage comprises the territory of cabbage-growing northward of the forest-steppe zone (Vasina, 1927; Shchegolev, 1955; Polyakov et. al., 1982).
