Agrotis Ochsenheimer (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae): a systematic analysis of South American species.
TLDR
A systematic revision was undertaken of the South American species of Agrotis, restricting to 20 the number of species of this genus for the region and transferring the other species to different genera and/or synonymizing with other species.
Revalidation of Oliera Brèthes (Lepidoptera: Cecidosidae) based on a redescription of O. argentinana and DNA analysis of Neotropical cecidosids
TLDR
The genus Oliera Brèthes, 1916, previously a junior synonym of Cecidoses Curtis, 1835, is revalidated, by comparing morphological characteristics within the family and through an analysis of mitochondrial (COI) DNA sequences, including putative members of the four Neotropical cecidosid genera.
Towards biodiversity hotspots effective for conserving mammals with small geographic ranges
TLDR
It is demonstrated that index hotspot types are highly efficient because they conserve 79% of mammal species (21% more species than richness hotspots types), and selection of different diversity measures to define hotspots may strongly affect the achievement of conservation goals.
A morphological phylogeny of Agrotis Ochsenheimer (Lepidoptera, Noctuidae), with emphasis on the South American species
TLDR
Results support Agrotis as a monophyletic group, sister to the South American species of Feltia (Feltia tent.), and the latter being more closely related to Agrot is than to the ‘true’ Feltian species.
Status and redescription of the South American pest species Agrotis robusta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): a history of misidentifications
TLDR
The aim of this work is to redescribe and illustrate the adult and male and female genitalia of Agrotis robusta, and to provide an identification key to closely related pest species in South America with which A. robusta has been confused.
Resurgence of a forgotten Southern Brazil endemic species: taxonomic position, redescription, and spatio-temporal distribution of Porosagrotis carolia Schaus, 1929 (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae: Noctuinae).
TLDR
The assessment of the distribution of the species, based on the standardized samplings and specimens deposited in entomological collections, suggests that F. carolia comb.
Revalidation and redescription of Feltia deprivata (Walker) (= bilitura of authors) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae), a pest species on South America
TLDR
This work revalidates F. deprivata, giving a complete description of the morphological characters for male and female adults, and carries out a revision of all the literature concluding that the actual pest species in South America is F. bilitura.
The austral-most record of the genus Haemagogus Williston (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
New information on breeding sites for the species and implications of this new record suggest a possible extension of distribution in the near future.
Cladistic, biogeographic and environmental niche analysis of the species of Agathemera Stål (Phasmatida, Agathemeridae)
TLDR
The endemic southern South American genus Agathemera Stal, which contains eight species, is analyzed in a cladistic context in order to establish a hypothesis regarding the phylogenetic relationships among its species and to find the most important variables that explain its present distribution.
Status and redescription of the South American pest species Agrotis robusta (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae): a history of misidentifications Estado y redescripción de Agrotis robusta (Lepidoptera:
TLDR
The aim of this work is to redescribe and illustrate the adult and male and female genitalia of Agrotis robusta, and to provide an identification key to closely related pest species in South America with which A. robusta has been confused.
