Kovtun, T., Klymchuk, O. (2020). Landscape-biotopic and zoogeographic analysis of the Noctuoidea (Lepidoptera) of Zhytomyr suburban area. Scientific Horizons, 05 (90), 65-72. Noctuoidea is the most numerous taxon of Lepidoptera order in the fauna of Ukraine. This is determined the value of these insects in both natural and anthropogenic ecosystems. The aim of this work is to study the landscape-biotope and zoogeographic structure of the noctuid moth complexes in the conditions of Zhytomyr

As a result of the conducted research 2480 specimens of insects belonging to 3 families, 23 subfamilies and 130 species of Noctuoidea were collected. It has been identified 18 typical landscapes for this species where they occur most often. Noctuoidea of Zhytomyr suburban area is divided into 5 groups: forest, meadow, forest-meadow, near-water and eurytopic species by landscape-biotopic affiliation. The forest complex includes 42 species (32,3 %), the meadow group consist of 38 species (29,2 %); the forest-meadow group consist of 28 species (21,5 %); the nearwater group includes 13 species (10,0 %), the eurytopic group presented by 9 species (7,0 %). It has detected half of the discovered species or fully associated with forest biogeocenoses or, at the imago stage; it migrates from the forest ecosystems to meadows and vice versa. For Noctuoidea of Zhytomyr suburban area have been selected 15 longitude and 10 latitude distribution options of species. Revealed that the largest share (29,3 %) constitute the species of the Eurasian species distribution. The Western Palearctic group of species distribution (20,8 %) is the next in terms of representation. The transpalearctic group of species distribution (11,6 %) is the third in terms of representation. It is noted that there are 4 species in the subcosmopolitan group of species distribution: Agrotis segetum, Agrotis ipsilon, Xestia c-nigrum, Helicoverpa armigera. They are dangerous agricultural pests. In the course of further research, it is planned to study other parameters of the ecological structure of the complexes of Noctuoidea of Zhytomyr suburban area.
