Abstract
The purpose of this work is to study the current state of the fauna of jewel beetles of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic of Azerbaijan. Due to the special geographical position of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic, as well as due to the lack of common borders with Azerbaijan, over the past 30 years there have been no special studies on jewel beetles here. Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic is famous for its orchards far beyond the borders of Azerbaijan, and many representatives of the Buprestidae family are serious pests of fruit trees, therefore the study of the species composition is of particular topicality. The peculiarities of the floristic complex of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic contributed to the formation of a specific fauna of insects, including jewel beetles. The studies were carried out in the period from 2012 to 2018, beetles collection was carried out from various biotopes during the spring-summer expedition trips that covered all areas of Nakhchivan AR. The paper provides information on the 5 subfamilies and 11 genera. The number of species in subfamilies is distributed as follows: Julodinae - 3, Polycestinae - 4, Chrysochroinae - 8, Buprestinae - 9, Agrilinae - 5. The species Agrilus pratensis RATZEBURG, 1837 is first recorded for the fauna of Azerbaijan.. Our comparative studies show that today the qualitative composition of the Buprestidae family of the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic is represented by a large number of species than the other two natural regions of Azerbaijan: Azerbaijan’s territory of the Greater Caucasus and the Lenkoran natural region. The article presents the taxonomic distribution of species, the places of their gathering, the coordinates of the locality, as well as the worldwide distribution.
