The fifth instar and pupa of C. licursis are compared to closely related species, and observations on wing color variation in adult Chorinea are provided. Expand
Male Genitalia of Neotropical Charaxinae: A Comparative Analysis of Character Variation
Substantial variation was found in the genital structures of Anaeini, making it difficult to establish structural patterns for this group, but structural variation may be very efficient to diagnose species, such as some species of Memphis Hübner and Fountainea Rydon, which can be easily identified through the presence of spines on the valva.
