A pesar de que la tribu Ithomiini (Lepidoptera: Danainae: Nymphalidae) tiene una amplia distribucion a lo largo del Neotropico y que estan envueltos en complejos mimeticos bien estudiados, hay poca informacion de la biologia de muchas de las especies que conforman esta tribu, especialmente las que habitan los Andes. Aqui se suministra informacion sobre los ciclos de vida y la biologia de Pteronymia zerlina zerlina (Hewitson, 1856) , P. veia florea Neild, 2008 y P. medellina Haensch, 1905… Expand

Figures from this paper

Immature stages of Pagyris cymothoe cymothoe (Hewitson, 1855) (Lepidoptera, Danainae, Ithomiini)
TLDR
This new life history is compared with the life histories of Pagyris ulla and of the sister genus Placidina d'Almeida, 1928 and the duration of life cycle (from egg to adult) lasted about 28 days. Expand
North Andean origin and diversification of the largest ithomiine butterfly genus
TLDR
The biogeographic reconstruction shows that Pteronymia originated in the Northern Andes, where it diversified extensively and was reflected by an increase in the rate of evolution of species’ elevational ranges towards present, and speciation rate decelerated with time, with no extinction. Expand
North Andean origin and diversification of the largest ithomiine butterfly genus
TLDR
The biogeographic reconstruction shows that Pteronymia originated in the Northern Andes, where it diversified extensively, and that the recent colonization of lowland areas was reflected by an increase in the rate of evolution of species elevational ranges towards present. Expand
Renewed diversification following Miocene landscape turnover in a Neotropical butterfly radiation
AIM: The landscape of the Neotropical region has undergone dynamic evolution throughout the Miocene, with the extensive Pebas wetland occupying western Amazonia between 23 and c. 10 Ma and theExpand
Renewed diversification following Miocene landscape turnover in a Neotropical butterfly radiation
TLDR
One of the most comprehensive time-calibrated molecular phylogenies of a group of Neotropical insects: the butterfly tribe Ithomiini is generated, finding that Ithomoini likely began diversifying at the interface between the Andes and the Amazonia around 26.4 my ago. Expand
Coloration and Structure of the Wings of Chorinea sylphina Bates
ABSTRACT. The structure and the origin of transparency of the wings of Chorinea sylphina, a species of glasswinged butterflies, were explored using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy,Expand

A phylogenetic reassessment of Hyalenna Forbes and Dircenna Doubleday, with a revision of Hyalenna (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Ithomiinae)
Abstract.  A morphological study of adults and immature stages and a cladistic analysis were conducted to clarify the relationships amongst members of the sister nymphalid butterfly genera DircennaExpand
Higher‐level phylogeny of the Ithomiinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): classification, patterns of larval hostplant colonization and diversification
TLDR
A higher‐level phylogenetic hypothesis is presented for the diverse neotropical butterfly subfamily Ithomiinae, inferred from one of the largest non‐molecular Lepidoptera data sets to date, suggesting repeated colonization of novel hostplant niches consistent with adaptive radiation. Expand
Ithomiinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): Summary of Known Larval Food Plants
TLDR
The known interactions between the larvae of ithomiine butterflies and their host plants are described in a table, illustrated, and briefly discussed, and it is believed that identifications of both insect and plant taxa are accurate to the generic level in all cases. Expand
Juvenile stages of Ithomiinae: overview and systematics (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae).
Larvae and pupae are illustrated and described for 66 species in 40 of the 53 genera of Ithomiinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae); eggs are shown for 60 species in 43 genera. With the use of 60 polarizedExpand
Molecular systematics of the butterfly genus Ithomia (Lepidoptera: Ithomiinae): a composite phylogenetic hypothesis based on seven genes.
TLDR
The tree suggests diversification has largely occurred within biogeographic regions such as Central America, the Amazon, the southern and northern Andes, with only occasional dispersal between such regions. Expand
A REVISION OF THE GENUS MEGOLERIA (LEPIDOPTERA: NYMPHALIDAE, ITHOMIINAE)
TLDR
The morphological characteristics of the ithomiine genus Megoleria Constantino are discussed, its systematics are reviewed, lectotypes for four names are designated, and the biology of each of its constituent taxa is summarized. Expand
Egg Deposition Patterns in Butterflies: Why Do Some Species Cluster Their Eggs Rather Than Deposit Them Singly?
  • N. Stamp
  • Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1980
TLDR
It is suggested that the occurrence of butterfly species which deposit eggs in clusters is more common than the literature indicates and that data on egg deposition patterns in natural populations of nymphalids in North America, in particular for Phyciodes, Chlosyne, Euphydryas, and Nymphalis species, would support this conclusion. Expand
Inspection and evaluation of host plant by the butterfly Mechanitis lysimnia (Nymph., Ithomiinae) before laying eggs: a mechanism to reduce intraspecific competition
TLDR
Field experiments showed that butterflies were able to recognize conspecific egg-clusters by visual cues and preferred to lay eggs on egg-free host plants, indicating an adjustment between the reproductive effort of the insect and the amount of food available to its offspring. Expand
Structure, mechanism and mechanical properties of pupal attachment in Greta oto (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Ithomiinae)
TLDR
The attachment was found to have high tensile strength and fracture toughness, both of which suggest that it has evolved for the dual purpose of preventing the pupa being pulled from the leaf by a predator and preventing the attachment being weakened by wind, which causes the pupA to swing. Expand
Correlations between adult mimicry and larval host plants in ithomiine butterflies
  • K. Willmott, J. Mallet
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series B: Biological Sciences
  • 2004
TLDR
It is shown that co–mimetic species occupy the same larval host–plant species significantly more often than expected in two out of five communities that are surveyed; in one of these, the effect remains significant after phylogenetic correction. Expand
