Immature Stages of the Neotropical Cracker Butterfly, Hamadryas epinome
The external morphology of the immature stages of Hamadryas epinome is described, including drawings, photos and scanning electron micrographs.
Biology and External Morphology of Immature Stages of the Butterfly, Diaethria candrena candrena
The biology and the external morphology of immature stages of Diaethria candrenacandrena (Godart) (GodArt) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae) are described and results are compared and discussed with immature stagesof other species of Biblidsinae described to date.
Taxonomy of the ‘Synargis axenus complex’ belonging to the ‘Synargis regulus’ species group, with a phylogenetic reassessment of the genus Synargis Hübner, 1819 (Lepidoptera: Riodinidae: Nymphidiini)
The phylogeny of the genus Synargis is reassessed, adding these new and revalidated taxa, and nine additional characters to the mix, and the taxonomy of the taxa involved is discussed.
The “Taygetis ypthima species group” (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Satyrinae): taxonomy, variation and description of a new species
A new species of Taygetis Hübner, [1819] (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Satyrinae) from southeastern Brazil is described and a dichotomous key for the species is provided.
Assessment of the current state of biodiversity data for butterflies and skippers in the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil (Lepidoptera, Papilionoidea and Hesperioidea)
Based on the results and literature records for other Brazilian states and biomes, probably the figures for Mato Grosso are underestimated, particularly in the families Hesperiidae, Lycaenidae and Riodinidae, in that order.
Biology and external morphology of immature stages of Memphis appias (Hübner) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Charaxinae)
The biology and the external morphology of Memphis appias (Hubner) immature stages collected on Croton floribundus (Euphorbiaceae) in various localities in the state of Parana, Brazil, are described.
Revision of the poorly known Neotropical butterfly genus Zischkaia Forster, 1964 (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Satyrinae), with descriptions of nine new species
Morphological characters and DNA ‘barcodes’ support the recognition of twelve species in the genus Zischkaia, a significant increase even for the relatively poorly studied subtribe Euptychiina.
