1 ISSN Acta Musei Moraviae, Scientiae biologicae (Brno) 98(2): 11 19, 2013 RNDr. Pavel Lauterer, on the occasion of his eightieth birthday On 25 August 2013, RNDr. Pavel Lauterer celebrated a remarkable anniversary. His eighty years have been marked by hundreds of fundamental scientific contributions, particularly (but not only) on jumping plant-lice, leafhoppers, planthoppers and on their natural enemies; by hundreds of thousands of mounted and identified specimens in collections; and by the hundreds of students he inspired into entomology through his indefatigable enthusiasm for insects and nature in general, his sense of humour and his exceptional friendly and encouraging attitude. As one of the most influential personalities in the field, he was appointed Honorary Member of the Czech Entomological Society in International recognition for his qualities is inseparable from the contributions in this Festschrift. For many of us who know him personally, Pavel is a respected colleague, an excellent teacher and a good friend. We wish him a very happy birthday. Igor Malenovský It was in April 1981 that I had the privilege of meeting Pavel the first time personally, although we had already maintained a correspondence for some three years. At that time I was working on my Ph.D thesis on psyllids and had reached a point at which questions had accumulated to the point at which expert input was becoming essential. I was very grateful that Pavel could extend his help and that I could visit him in Brno. From Brno railway station, where he kindly picked me up, we went straight to the Entomology Department of the Moravian Museum, situated in a former residential house, and started looking at specimens and talking about psyllids. I was impressed by the huge psyllid collection he had assembled over the years and even more by his profound knowledge of the biology, biogeography and taxonomy of the psyllids, and of plants and animals in general. Pavel also showed me his rearing experiments, confined to the minute balcony of his home apartment. Even though the setting Pavel Lauterer collecting insects in the Belianské Tatry Mts. in Slovakia in 1962 (photo Mrs. Vìra Lautererová). 11

2 I. MALENOVSKÝ, D. BURCKHARDT, S. DROSOPOULOS Pavel Lauterer and Reinhard Remane collecting leafhoppers on the shore of the Meugliano Lake during the 14th Central European Auchenorrhyncha Meeting in Ivrea, Italy, 2007 (photo Gernot Kunz). was simple, he made many invaluable observations and shed light on some very vexed issues, such as the identities of Heterotrioza horvathii and obliqua as forms of H. chenopodii arising out of different photoperiods. I also remember the wonderful Czech meals and excellent beer we had after long days of work. This visit marked the start of a highly fruitful collaboration that has lasted to this very day, with the description of a new Trioza species which, independently, we both named Trioza laserpitii. Pavel is a true field entomologist and one of the best collectors I know. Thanks to his fantastic knowledge of biology, he finds the rarest and most sought-after insects. One would not be guilty of exaggeration to observe that if Pavel does not discover a particular species in a certain locality, the chances are very high that it does not occur there. I remember with great pleasure our highly successful joint excursions to the xerothermic rock face of Les Follatères in the Lower Valais of Switzerland, and to the species-rich subalpine biotopes on Rigi and Pilatus in the pre-alps of central Switzerland. In the evenings of any excursion Pavel would take hours to process the large quantities of specimens that he had collected during the day. It is no surprise that these collections contained several new psyllid species, which we described together in the following years. In fact, many of our joint projects started with a new species which needed description and then developed into a genuine revision of the entire group: our papers on the Rhinocolinae, Bactericera and the Aphalara exilis group are examples. Pavel, I would like to thank you here, with all my heart, for your generous help, for continuous incentives and for the friendship we have shared over the years. Daniel Burckhardt It is with pleasure that I think back to the time when Pavel first visited Greece, nearly 20 years ago, to the collecting trips we took together, and to his infectious enthusiasm. Visiting the area of Lake Mornos, close to my own village of Skaloula, he exclaimed: Sakis, I have never in my life seen better biotopes! Lake Mornos is a storage reservoir, supplying water to the city of Athens. The surrounding area is sparsely populated and undisturbed and I have submitted a proposal to turn it into a National Park. 12

Young (right) on his visit of the Moravian Museum in Further, even when he was staying in the city of Athens, he would waste no opportunity to collect. He did so on the premises of the Benaki Phytopathological Institute, in my garden in Kiphisia and in the Botanical gardens in the centre of Athens, where he once stayed on, still collecting, right up to sunset. Stopping when the light failed, he found himself locked in as the gates had been closed long before, and a guard had to be called to set him free. Of course, we have collected new Hemiptera species and described them together, but quite apart from the scientific importance of his visits I also remember him for his wonderful sense of humour. On a visit to the Peloponnese, after a day of hard work collecting on Mt. Parnon we were relaxing by the seaside in Paralion Astros, enjoying ouzo with fine cooked cephalopod and I asked him if it was the first time he had eaten octopus. His answer was negative; it was in fact the second time. So I asked him where then he had had octopus before and he answered: At home, from a tin. So I said: Pavel, then now you eat octopus for the first time and of course ordered more. I also remember how he used to be pleased with the abundance of fresh lemon served with a meal, as lemons used to be very scarce in his country. It hardly needs saying that Pavel is a person I will never forget. Sakis Drosopoulos 13
