KMENT P. & BAŇAŘ P. 2010: On the taxonomy and distribution of the genus Maccevethus (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Rhopalidae). Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 95(1): 15.47. . Material of the genus Maccevethus Dallas, 1852 preserved in the collections of the National Museum, Prague and the Moravian Museum, Brno is revised. We record the syntopic occurrence of Maccevethus errans (Fabricius, 1794) and M. caucasicus (Kolenati, 1845) stat. restit. in Portugal, supporting species status for the latter taxon. In the case of M. corsicus corsicus Signoret, 1862 and M. corsicus persicus Jakovlev, 1882, we prefer to retain subspecies status for the time being. The following new or confirmed records are provided: Maccevethus caucasicus from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Portugal, M. errans from Portugal, M. corsicus corsicus from Montenegro and Syria and M. corsicus persicus from Afghanistan. Based on a re-examination of published records, M. corsicus corsicus is excluded from the fauna of Slovakia (and Central Europe). Maccevethus corsicus persicus is excluded from the fauna of Iraq. Additional corrections to the published records of M. caucasicus and M. corsicus corsicus from Cyprus, Iran, Israel, and Turkey are made. The distribution of M. caucasicus in Slovakia is mapped, and habitus photographs and drawings of the parameres of specimens from various countries are provided.

Faunistic data on 56 species of planthoppers and leafhoppers (Hemiptera: Auchenorrhyncha) from the Czech Republic are provided and discussed. Twenty-two species are recorded from the Czech Republic for the first time: Cixius (Acanthocixius) sticticus Rey, 1891, Trigonocranus emmeae Fieber, 1876, Chloriona clavata Dlabola, 1960, Chloriona dorsata Edwards, 1898, Chloriona sicula Matsumura, 1910, Gravesteiniella boldi (Scott, 1870), Kelisia confusa Linnavuori, 1957, Kelisia sima Ribaut, 1934, Ribautodelphax imitans (Ribaut, 1953), Ribautodelphax pallens (Stĺl, 1854), Empoasca ossiannilssoni Nuorteva, 1948, Eupteryx decemnotata Rey, 1891, Kyboasca maligna (Walsh, 1862), Allygidius mayri (Kirschbaum, 1868), Allygus maculatus Ribaut, 1952, Eohardya fraudulenta (Horváth, 1903), Metalimnus steini (Fieber, 1869), Orientus ishidae (Matsumura, 1902), Phlepsius intricatus (Herrich-Schäffer, 1866), Psammotettix nardeti Remane, 1965, Psammotettix poecilus (Flor, 1861), and Psammotettix slovacus Dlabola, 1948. Nineteen species (previously known in the Czech Republic only from Moravia) are newly recorded from Bohemia: Cixius (Paracixius) distinguendus Kirschbaum, 1868, Chloriona unicolor (Herrich-Schäffer, 1835), Ditropsis flavipes (Signoret, 1865), Kelisia monoceros Ribaut, 1934, Kelisia praecox Haupt, 1935, Ribautodelphax angulosa (Ribaut, 1953), Tettigometra (Tettigometra) fusca Fieber, 1865, Tettigometra (Mitricephalus) macrocephala Fieber, 1865, Edwardsiana alnicola (Edwards, 1924), Edwardsiana rosaesugans (Cerutti, 1939), Edwardsiana soror (Linnavuori, 1950), Edwardsiana stehliki Lauterer, 1958, Empoasca apicalis (Flor, 1861), Eurhadina kirschbaumi Wagner, 1937, Kybos abstrusus (Linnavuori, 1949), Kybos calyculus (Cerutti, 1939), Zyginidia mocsaryi (Horváth, 1910), Calamotettix taeniatus (Horváth, 1911), and Colladonus torneellus (Zetterstedt, 1828).

ANTONÍN V. & DVOŘÁK D. 2010: New, rare and lesser-known macromycetes in Moravia (Czech Republic) . IX. Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 95(1): 143.162. . The authors give descriptions of macroand microfeatures of 13 rare or lesser-known macromycetes collected in Moravia (Czech Republic). Elaphomyces septatus and Lepiota griseovirens are recorded for the first time in the Czech Republic. Lepiota lilacea and Psilocybe laetissima are published for the first time from Moravia, Coprinopsis spelaiophylla for the second time. Armillaria ectypa has been re-collected after almost 50 years, Clavariadelphus truncatus after almost 30 years, and Geastrum berkeleyi after more than 20 years. Biscogniauxia simplicior and Lyophyllum leucophaeatum have only a few recent Moravian localities. Further, Callistosporium pinicola represents a rare, only recently-recorded taxon. Crepidotus crocophyllus has been collected outside its previously-known range in the southernmost part of Moravia. Aleurodiscus disciformis is a critically endangered species that has been collected at several localities in Moravia.

SKÁCELOVÁ O. & ZAPOMĚLOVÁ E. 2010: Remarks on the occurrence and ecology of several interesting cyanobacterial morphospecies found in South Moravian wetlands. Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 95(1): 201.221. . Extensive investigation of planktonic, periphytic, metaphytic and benthic cyanobacteria was performed in the years 1986.2009 at South Moravian localities. The occurrence and ecology of eight selected cyanobacterial morphospecies were studied in detail: Rhabdogloea smithii (R. et E. Chodat) Komárek, Merismopedia convoluta Brébisson in Kützing, 1849, Merismopedia sp., Spirulina major Kützing ex Gomont, 1892, Spirulina meneghiniana Zanardini ex Gomont, 1892, Spirulina nordstedtii Gomont, 1892, Arthrospira jenneri Stizenberger ex Gomont, 1892, non-planktonic morphospecies of Anabaena Bory ex Bornet et Flahault, 1888, and Anabaenopsis nadsonii Voronichin, 1929. This research revealed Anabaenopsis nadsonii as a species new for the Czech Republic. Further, the environmental preferences of the species studied are here revised and discussed together with data in the literature. Spirulina meneghiniana (Kutnar, Pastvisko . Nová okrouhlá tůň Pool, Lednické rybníky fishponds . Prostřední rybník Pond) have been found to display a markedly wider range of conductivity tolerances than had been previously reported. All samples collected in the course of the work have been deposited in the collection of Moravian Museum, Brno and are available for further studies.

NOVOTNÝ I. & KUBEŠOVÁ S. 2010: The moss Rhabdoweisia crenulata (Mitt.) H. Jameson in the Czech Republic and adjacent regions. Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 95(1): 223.229. . In the Czech Republic, the moss Rhabdoweisia crenulata was known until very recently from only Český les [the Bohemian Forest]. In 2009, it was newly recorded in the Zkamenělý zámek Reserve (.ďárské vrchy Hills). We provide a detailed description of the new locality and review the distribution of the species in the Czech Republic and adjacent regions, with remarks on the fertility of herbarium specimens.

SUTORÝ K. 2010: Adventive occurrences of Hypericum annulatum Moris. in Europe with the first record in the Czech Republic. . Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 95(1): 231.234. . Outside its main natural distribution range in the Balkans, Hypericum annulatum is mentioned from localities in Switzerland, Denmark and also newly from the Czech Republic. This species belongs to the nominate subsection of the section Adenosepalum Spach, which is in most parts of Europe represented by only the easily distinguishable H. montanum L.
