Scienctific interest: Systematic, morphology and phylogeny of Lepidoptera.
Special interest: Systematic, morphology and phylogeny of Limacodidae (Lepidoptera, Zygaenoidea).

I was born in Ulyanovsk, Russia. After finishing secondary school in 2000 I entered the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University, Faculty of Biology and Chemistry. In 2005 I finished my studies there with a Diploma project “Embrional and postembrioinal development of Crustacea”. During my studies in this University I interested in Entomology.

Since 2003 I have started my scientific work on the Limacodidae of the Palaearctic and South-East Asian Region under supervision of Dr. Vadim V. Zolotuhin.

From September 2005 to December 2007 I was a student of Master degree of Entomology Department of the St. Petersburg State University for special work on the family Limacodidae of the Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan Regions. The title of my MPhil is “Revisions of the generic complexes of Limacodidae (Lepidoptera, Zygaenoidea) in South-East Asia”.

From 2007 to 2011 I was a PhD-student of Zoology Department of the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University with a title of PhD-thesis “Taxonomy and phylogeny of limacodids of the genus Parasa auct. (Lepidoptera, Limacodidae)”. The defence of the thesis was carried out in February 3th, 2011 in St. Petersburg State University.
Since 2011 I am an assistant professor of the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University (Russia).
During my scientific work I took part in 6 expeditions through Middle Volga Region of Russia (2004, 2005, 2008, 2009), in 2 expeditions to the Far East of Russia (2005, 2006), in 1 expedition to Peninsular Malaysia (2006), and in 3 expeditions to Vietnam (2008, 2009, 2011).

I took part in the following research projects: PBI of the American Museum of Natural History (2006–2007); Russian Federal program supporting scientific schools NSh – 7130.2006.4 (2006); RFBI-grant № 08-04-90300-Viet_a (2008–2009) (Conservation of the biodiversity of moths of relict tropical forests of Vietnam under anthropogenic pressure and their practical significance); RFBI-grant № 11-04-93001-Viet_a (2011–2012) (Biodiversity of the model heteroceran families of Lepidoptera and their parasites (Hymenoptera) of restoring tropical forests in southern Vietnam); BOLD (the Barcode of Life Data Systems) of the University of Guelph (2009–2011); grant of young scientists of the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University named after I.N. Ulyanov (2012); RFBI-grant № 12-04-32186-mol_a (2012–2013) (Morphofunctional characteristics of copulative apparatus of the moths of the family Limacodidae (Insecta, Lepidoptera) and their role in construction of the family system).

Alexey SOLOVYEV erhielt anläßlich des 50. Bayerischen Entomologentages am 10. März 2012 in München den Sonderpreis 2012 in Anerkennung seiner besonderen Leistungen in der Entomologie.
