Bhutanitis mansiegdi (RTLEy, 1939), a rare Papilionid butterfiy, was described on a basis of the unique female specimen which was found by M. J.

A review of the occurrence and diversity of the sphragis in butterflies (Lepidoptera, Papilionoidea)

The sphragis potentially represents one of the clearest examples of mate conflict known and should be investigated to further the understanding of the selective processes at play in an ‘arms race’ between the sexes.

The occurrence of a sphragis and genital modification in Hypermnestra, Archon and Sericinus (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea: Papilionidae)

ABSTRACT In certain butterfly species males attach a large external mating plug termed a sphragis to the female abdomen during mating. This is derived from male accessory secretions and covers the

The occurrence and function of the sphragis in the zerynthiine genera Zerynthia, Allancastria and Bhutanitis (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea: Papilionidae)

Specimens of all 12 species of the genera Zerynthia, Allancastria and Bhutanitis were examined for presence or absence of a sphragis and their male and female genitalia were studied.
