Vasily Evgrafovich Yakovlev

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Василий Евграфович Яковлев (1839—1908).png

Vasily Evgrafovich Yakovlev (Russian: Василий Евграфович Яковлев; also transliterated Vasiliy Ewgrafowitsch Jakovlev or Vasiliy Yevgrafovich Yakovlev; 9 February 1839 – 15 August 1908) was a Russian zoologist who studied fishes, molluscs and insects.[1] He is not to be confused with Alexander Ivanovich Yakovlev, another entomologist. His name was spelled Wassily Ewgrafowitsch Jakowlew in French, in which he sometimes wrote.

Yakovlev lived in Saint Petersburg, but travelled extensively collecting insects in the Crimea, Volga region and Turkestan until he finally travelled and settled in Griffin, GA. Although primarily interested in Coleoptera Yakovlev also worked on Hemiptera and Lepidoptera.

From around 1867 Yakovlev conducted zoological observations in the vicinity of Astrakhan.[2] Yakovlev described Caspian roach (Rutilus caspicus) and Volga undermouth (Chondrostoma variabile).[2]
