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 according to the extent of the pest damage in rape. In the zone of low damage, harmfulness of E. adonidis is not more than 2 points under the 5-points scale of harmfulness (Polyakov et al., 1981). The harming activity is sporadic and insignificant..

Method of map production:

Data from the open publications are used for the allocation of area and zone of pest damage. It inhabits the European part of the former USSR northward to the forest zone, including Baltic States (Silferberg, 1991), Kirov Region of Russia (Shernin, 1974), Belarus (Lopatin & Nesterova, 2005), Ukraine (Brovdii, 1974; Benkovskii, 1999), Middle and Low Volga region (Sakharov, 1934), Middle Ural (Shvetsova, 1958), all Caucasus (Lopatin, 1977; Samedov, 1963; Mirzoeva, 2001; Benkovskii, 1999), Siberia except north (Shvetsova, 1958; Medvedev, 1973; Benkovskii, 1999) eastward to Chukotka, Magadan, and Kamchatka (Sakharov, 1934; Medvedev, 1992), all Kazakhstan (Lopatin & Kulenova, 1986; Medvedev, 1992) and most of Middle Asia except sandy deserts of Turkmenistan (Lopatin, 1977). In Middle Asian mountains, it is distributed up to 3500 m above sea level (Lopatin, 1977). The zone of low damage comprises the rape-growing territory in the steppe zone of Ukraine, in the Lower Volga region and Caucasus (Sakharov, 1934; Gussakovskii, 1949; Shvetsova, 1958; Brovdii, 1974; Polyakov et al., 1981).
