Butterflies and Skippers in the Dodecanese Islands (Greece): new data and an update on their distribution (Lepidoptera: Hesperioidea & Papilionoidea)

  title={Butterflies and Skippers in the Dodecanese Islands (Greece): new data and an update on their distribution (Lepidoptera: Hesperioidea \& Papilionoidea)},
  author={Sylvain Cuvelier and Morten S. M{\o}lgaard},
The Dodecanese, the most southerly group of Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, cover a large geographical area and are situated near the mainland of Turkey. The distribution of butterflies on the 12 main islands of the archipelago has been previously studied but considerable gaps in territorial and temporal coverage remain. Many species of butterflies and skippers have a distribution that shows low population densities and various species could easily have been overlooked in the past. In 2011…

Polymorphism of Colias croceus (Geoffroy in Fourcroy, 1785) from the Azores caused by differential pterin expression in the wing scales.
Investigation of the optical mechanisms underlying the wing colouration of the butterflies by performing spectrophotometry and imaging scatterometry of the variously coloured wing areas and scales finds three forms consistent with the patterns of the well-known 'alba' polymorphism.

Complete DNA barcode reference library for a country's butterfly fauna reveals high performance for temperate Europe
Interestingly, DNA barcoding was found to be the most effective identification tool, outperforming external morphology, and being slightly better than male genitalia, and Romania is now the first country to have a comprehensive DNA barcode reference database for butterflies.
