Insect assemblages from two sites, Skorodum-95 and Kazakovka-95, located on the right bank of the Irtysh river (Ust-Ishimsky district, Omsk region) and containing deposits of the Lipovskian terrace, corresponding to the last stage of the Karginskii interglacial.
In regard to the proportions of insect assemblages referred to different zonal-latitudinal, biotope, and vegetation-layers' groups, all three described insect complexes were attributed to a mid-boreal fauna type; this sub-type is characterized as "flood-plain forest" one.
These insect communities occupied the habitats that were reconstructed to look like flood-plain forests of spruce, pines, and birches, growing along the former Loz'va river; and the climate seemed to be warmer, similar to that in the modern middle-taiga zone.
