ABSTRACT: The Russian Entomological Society dating back to 1859 was one of the first specialized scientific societies in Russia. However it was hardly the only one specialized association of entomologists in Russia. Multidisciplinary natural history societies also could establish entomological divisions of their own. The activities of these divisions was subject to their own regulations, they developed specialized research programs and usually had their own sources of financial support. The present paper deals with the history of one of such divisions — the Permanent Entomological Committee of the Society of Friends of Natural Science — and its contribution to Russian entomology.
