Ancient Neotropical origin and recent recolonisation: Phylogeny, biogeography and diversification of the Riodinidae (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea).
We present the first dated higher-level phylogenetic and biogeographic analysis of the butterfly family Riodinidae. This family is distributed worldwide, but more than 90% of the c. 1500 species areExpand

Basal subtribes of the Nymphidiini (Lepidoptera: Riodinidae): phylogeny and myrmecophily
Abstract Three cladistic analyses, based predominantly on adult morphology, are presented for myrmecophilous riodinid butterflies in the tribe Nymphidiini. The first is a species-level analysis ofExpand

Phylogeny of the riodinid butterfly subtribe Theopeina (Lepidoptera: Riodinidae: Nymphidiini)
Abstract The almost exclusively Neotropical butterfly family Riodinidae is poorly represented in both ecological and systematic studies of Lepidoptera. A comparative morphological study of allExpand

Patterns of feeding behaviour in adult male riodinid butterflies and their relationship to morphology and ecology
Abstract Adult butterflies are known to visit a wide variety of food substrates, but, with the exception of flower visitation, little is known about what substances are being sought or whatExpand

Extinction and biogeography in the Caribbean: new evidence from a fossil riodinid butterfly in Dominican amber
We describe a new species of extinct riodinid butterfly, Voltinia dramba, from Oligo–Miocene Dominican amber (15–25 Myr ago). This appears to be the first butterfly to be taxonomically described fromExpand
