The high frequency of the melanic form (carbonaria) of Biston betularia was shown to be significantly correlated with air pollution levels in industrial and large urban areas of Czechoslovakia. The lowest frequency of the melanic form was found in...

A melanistic specimen of Leucosoma salicis, collected in Leningrad (USSR) is described. It is suggested, that the bright bluish colour of the wings in this insect may be connected with imbedment of particles.

The local populations of O. strigilis differ from each other in the coloration of the melanic m...
