Bike Tour - Bashang Grassland Ⅰ

Bashang is the area on the border of Heibei and Inner Mongolia. The vast extented temperate grassland there is paradise for shutterbugs, especially for those who live in Beijing.

You might have known that I’m an amateur in photography and bicycle. I was watching a map when the idea that going to Bashang Grassland by bicycle hit me. Soon I began to collect information about the travel. I benefited a lot from people who had already achieved it and put their stories on internet. I made my own route and schedule. Then I found An bo and Hu Chu as my partners.

Our final destination was Ulanbutong, or Hongshan Army Horse Ranch, located in Inner Mongolia, far away from Beijing. Actually, that was the first time for all of us to ride such a long distance——over 500km!Facing the great challenge, what we have to do was plenty of preparation, such as equipments, medicine, tools, etc. Before setting off, we made a short distance ride to Shidu as train. Well, after that, Hu Chu gave up. That having no any experience of distant riding made him tired out.

After a month’s preparation, An Bo and I set out on July 5, 2008. In the following 12 days, we rolled 1,100km, crossed Beijing, Heibei and Inner Mongolia. The following are figures of the tour.

Date: July 5, 2008-July 16, 2008

Route: Beijing-Huairou-Fengning-Datan-Duolun-Yudaokou-Jixielinchang-Ulanbutong-Jixielinchang-Weichang-Chengde-Luanping-Gubeikou-Miyun-Huairou-Beijing

Cerambycoidea Forum

From Baian-Tsogt... this must be a species from exaratum-group, in my view.
But the unicolored reddish antennae to bewilder me.. Deuced genus.

Cerambycidae  remarks ussr (2013)

E. carinatum was described after one specimen from “Siberia”. I do not know the type and regard as typical the populations of the species from West  Siberia (Russian regions: Orenburg, Cheliabinsk, Kurgan, Omsk, Novosibirsk; Kazakhstan regions: Kustanai, Kokchetav, Atbasar,
Semipalatinsk). I’ve got a pair  of E.c.carinatum from Cheliabinsk Region. Besides I’ve studied
(2003) several good series in Zoological Muserum (St.-Petersburg) with the labels: “Orenburg,
Leman”; “E Ural distr., Krasnenskiy, 31.7.1926,  Umnov» - now: Cheliabinsk Reg., Krasninskiy
(30km E Verhneuralsk); “Verkhneuralsk distr., Rysaeva, source of Ural River, VII.1896,
Kisliakov”; “Akmolinsk reg., Kokchetav, 5-10.7.1899 Ingenitzky”; “Akmolinsk reg., Kokchetav
distr., Zeredinskoe Lake, 20.V.-10.VII.1902, Rubno”; “Borovsk., Kokchetav, Akmolinsk Region,
25.6 – 12.7.1932, V.Popov”. The taxon is charactererized  by relatively flat elytra with special
puncturation; without dorsal white stripes, but humeral stripe always complete.
According to A.Shapovalov (2010 – personal  message) E. carinatum was collected near Yumatovo (Bashkiria, about 20km SW Ufa) – the  first record of the species (and genus) for Europe.
E. altaicum was described from Narym and Bukhtarma vallies (right tributaries of Irtysh southwards Zyrianovsk: Bolshenarymskaia, Altaiskaia). It is a very peculiar taxon, not a synonym
of E. carinatum and can be in fact a good species. I’ve studied the syntypes. It is characterized by
very large and wide body with strongly convex elytra usually without any white stripes or with
strongly reduced humeral white stripe.
According to the original description, N. involvens var. blessigi is characterized by bright
white humeral elytral stripe in males and several dorsal white stripes in females. It is a common
Altai form of E. carinatum with irregular white elytral stripes distributed in Shebalino environs and
southwards to Chemal and Kuraj Stepp, and probably (according to Suvorov, 1909) as far
eastwards as Minusinsk. Two females of  E.c.blessigi from NE Kazakhstan, Leninogorsk
(“Riddersk, Dahmberg”) are preserved in Zoological Institute (S.-Petersburg).
Bisides it was mentioned in the  original description of var.  blessigi, that certain females
could be totally covered with fine pubescence. Three syntype females with totally pubescent elytra
(Vienna Museim), as well as another similar syntype female (Prague Museum) belong to that last
form, which represents another taxon - E. c. involvens m. vestitum; such form absent in Altai region
and is known only as a morpha of E. c. involvens.
 Chemal environs are occupied by E. carinatum with regular white elytral stripes - E.c.
bramsoni (= gassneri). I’ve studied the holotype of Neodorcadion carinatum v. bramsoni in Budapest
Eodorcadion dorcas was recorded fo Russia (Plavilstshikov, 1958), but undoubtedly absent
in Russian fauna, as it is distributed very far from Russian border in West Mongolia along Dzabhan
River valley (border-line between Dzabhan and Gobi-Altai aimaks). Plavilstshikov’s (1958) data on
E. dorcas area (“East Saian Mts., south Tannu-Ola Ridge, Kobdo, Ubsu-Nur lake, Selenga Valley”
and so on) are totally fantastic. Many published records of the species were based on the wrong identified specimens of E. maurum.
 Phytoecia (Helladia) plasoni was recorded for Armenia by Iablokov-Khnzorian (1961) and
then was collected here by A.Lobanov (Lobanov et al., 1981). One male from Armenia (Megri
distr., 15km N Shvanidzor, 24.5.2001, Agababian leg.) is preserved in my collection; two specimes
in M.Kalashian’s collection: Niuvady, 20.5.2003, Malkhasian leg. and 6-10km N Niuvady, 9-
16.6.2003 Malkhasian leg. 
According to Namhaidorzh (1972), E. carinatum involvens m. bicoloratum Plavilstshikov,
1958 is in fact a form of E. lutshniki without white stripes. There are two males and two females
(“Tuva, Terekhty-Khem, 26.7.1947, A.Tsherepanov  leg.”) in Plavilstshokov’s collection
(Moscow). According to my materials this form  has own areas and so must be regarded as a
subspecies: E. l. bicoloratum Danilevsky, 2007. I know 2 a little different populations: East TannuOla, Shurmak environs (my collection) and south Erzin environs
(Saluk collection, Minsk and my
collection). In Mongolia similar specimens are mixed in one population with striated specimens
(Namhaidorzh, 1972 and a pair in ZIN collection,  St.-Petersburg) in Sands Altan-Els, NE of
Ubsunur aimak. This population was described as E. l. altanelsense Heyrovsky, 1973. Which form
of E. lutshniki occurs in Mongolia near Ulangom rests unknown to me. It could belong to E. l. lutshniki
All taxa of Eodorcadion group “maurum-quinquevittatum” belong to one species. Now I am ready to recognize 4 subspecies, though in reality the number of subspecies must be more. Sometimes the areas of different subspecies nearly contact one another
(and specimens from
different populations are preserved with identic labels). Sometimes populations of different
subspecies are intermixed or the area of one subspecies is interrupted by the area of another. Very
often morphologically identic specimens can be observed in different subspecies.
 E. maurum quinquevittatum was described as Neodorcadion quinquevittatum: “Endast
tvänne skadade exemplar tagna af Ehnberg vid  faktoriet Soldan invid  Jenisei (Ulu-kem) uti
Mongoliet i slutet af September.” Soldan was situated in the territory of Tuva Republic just close to
Ust-Elegest (a little eastwards), 40km W Kyzyl. According to available materials, this part of
Enisej valley from about Kyzyl to Bayan-Kol (50km W Kyzyl) is occupied by specimens with
strongly developed elytral carinae ans white stripes, that agrees with E. quinquevittatum sensu
Plavilstshikov (1958). Breuning (1962) recorded type locality as: “Governement Minoussinsk” –
now south part of Krasnoirsk Region of Russia. Here another taxon (E.m. leucogrammum) is
distributed, and I do not know where Breuning received such information from. So, E. m. quinquevittatum includes specimens with the most developed elytral carinae and is distributed from
about Ishtii-Hem to Kyzyl and then southards to Hadyn lake. I collected a lot of very typical E. maurum quinquevittatum near Ishtii-Hem.

モンゴルの旅から③ 続・平原の生き物たち

 Créatures des plaines, un voyage en Mongolie


すると芝生のような草の間を歩き回っている虫がいました。黒に鮮やかな白いストライプの入る美しいカミキリムシです。 この辺りには樹木が見られません。幼虫は草の根でも食べて育つのでしょうか。

Pour rester Jiguru chaud, quatre jours, je suis allé à fermer en voiture et je me promenais demander de fleurs et de papillons. 
De haute latitude et de courts étés fleurs Mongolie différents étaient en fleurs à la fois. 
Mais il ya aussi une différence subtile Si vous regardez de près, je ne sais pas quand il s'agit de près le type exact, parce que j'ai rencontré beaucoup de fleurs, nous allons présenter les principaux d'entre eux.  Nous avons été avec nous depuis le Kakushu enseignements familier.
Prendre la direction de la façade sud d'environ 1.800 m des thermes de Jiguru, je suis allé au pied de la montagne tout en répétant Suberuji Hilleman et bas-ascension. C'était une altitude d'environ 2200 degrés regardant l'altimètre.
