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 pest damage is only established according to the extent of damaging agricultural plants. In the zone of low damage, harmfulness of H. nigrirostris is about 1 point under the 5-points of harmfulness scale (Kopaneva et al., 1983). Threshold of harmfulness on the clover seed crops is not less than 100 adults per 100 sweeps of the butterfly net or 3-5 adults per sq. m.

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 also based on the analysis of the collection of the Zoological Institute RAS. The localities of the species are marked preliminarily in coordinate system on blank geographical map by standard means of GIS-technologies. It inhabits the European part of the former USSR northward to Karelia, Region and Komi Republic (Sedykh, 1974; Makarov & Shorokhov, 1986), the whole Caucasus (Zaslavskii, 1961), the south of Western and Eastern Siberia (Legalov & Opanasenko, 2000), Middle Asia, Kazakhstan (Baitenov, 1974), and Primorskii Territory (Egorov & Basarukina, 1981). The zone of low damage comprises territory of the clover-growing in forest and forest-steppe zones in the European part of the former USSR eastward to Middle Volga region. Borders of the zone of harmfulness are given after publications of Ioannisiani (1972), Kopaneva et al. (1983); Dmitrieva (2005).
