Immature stages of the butterfly Diaethria clymena janeira (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae)

  title={Immature stages of the butterfly Diaethria clymena janeira (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae)},
  author={Eduardo P. Barbosa and Lucas Augusto Kaminski and Andr{\'e} Victor Lucci Freitas},
The immature stages (egg, larva, and pupa) morphology, larval and oviposition behavior, and host plant of the "eighty-eight" butterfly Diaethria clymena janeira (C. Felder, 1862) are described. Eggs are laid singly under leaf, and have pronounced vertical ribs ending up in a crown. Larvae of early instars construct stick-like frass chains where they rest when not feeding. Late instars are green with reduced body scoli and long branched head scoli. Pupae are entirely green, and pupation occurs…

Immature Stages of the Neotropical Mistletoe Butterfly Cunizza hirlanda planasia Fruhstorfer (Pieridae: Anthocharidini)

ABSTRACT. The immature stages of the Neotropical mistletoe butterfly Cunizza hirlanda planasia Fruhstorfer (Pieridae: Anthocharidini) are described and illustrated for the first time from cerrado

Biology and External Morphology of Immature Stages of the Butterfly, Diaethria candrena candrena

The biology and the external morphology of immature stages of Diaethria candrenacandrena (Godart) (GodArt) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae) are described and results are compared and discussed with immature stagesof other species of Biblidsinae described to date.

Immature Stages of the Neotropical Butterfly, Dynamine agacles agacles

The external morphology of the immature stages of Dynamine agacles agacles (Dalman, 1823) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Biblidinae) is described, including photos, drawings, and scanning electron micrographs, allowing to make further observations on the natural history and evolution of Dynamines.

Biology and external morphology of the immature stages of the butterfly Callicore pygas eucale , with comments on the taxonomy of the genus Callicore (Nymphalidae: Biblidinae)

Immature stages data provide further evidence that Callicore is paraphyletic and that generic limits within the Callicorina need revision.

The life cycle of Oressinoma typhla Doubleday, [1849] (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae)

The complete life cycle of Oressinoma typhla Doubleday, [1849] and the morphology of its immature stages are described and its host plant is identified as Cyperus involucratus (Cyperaceae) in the mountains of northern Venezuela.

Immature Stages of the Neotropical Cracker Butterfly, Hamadryas epinome

The external morphology of the immature stages of Hamadryas epinome is described, including drawings, photos and scanning electron micrographs.

Trophic host-parasitoid interactions of two Neotropical butterfly species in southeastern Mexico

The results suggest a trade-off between the diversity of parasitoids and mortality for both butterfly species, and Quantitative observations of trophic relationships can help to understand the biological processes and changes occurring in complex but fragile networks.

Partially coupled reaction norms of pupal colour and spot size in a butterfly

Using experiments on the tropical satyrine butterfly Mycalesis mineus, it is confirmed that pupal spot size is plastic and it is speculated that pupan spots may function against predation, but further studies are needed to understand their possible adaptive significance.

Exploración Morfológica del Corion en Biblidinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): Aspectos Filogenéticos y Clasificatorios

Se presenta una síntesis inédita of las principales clasificaciones propuestas entre 1886–2009 para Biblidinae, junto with su representación gráfica; con base en ellas se hace una comparación with los resultados that se obtuvieron en el estudio del relieve coriónico.



Biology and behavior of the neotropical butterfly Eunica bechina (Nymphalidae) with special reference to larval defence against ant predation

It is suggested that frass chains are probably related to defence against "walking" predators, especially ants, who have difficulty in attacking the caterpillars at these refuges.

Higher level phylogeny for the passion‐vine butterflies (Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae) based on early stage and adult morphology

A higher level phylogeny for the passion-vine butterflies (Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae) was generated by cladistic analysis of 146 morphological characters from all life stages, and supported the monophyly of all currently recognized genera.

Notes on the Life Cycle and Natural History of Butterflies of E1 Salvador. V.A. Pyrrhogyra hypsenor (Nymphalidae-Catonephelinae)

It is noted that apparently there is a prefer ence for parasitizing Diptera and Hymenoptera to deposit their eggs on the larvae of species protected against predators by the unpalatable and/or poisonous substances sequestered from their food plants, probably to ensure the safety of their own eggs and larvae.

Phylogenetic relationships among Heliconiinae genera based on morphology (Lepidoptera : Nymphalidae)

Parsimony analyses of forty-nine species in twenty-nine genera indicate that Heliconiinae can be divided into four main groups: (1) Pardopsis, Acraea and Actinote; (2) Cethosia plus Neotropical genera; (3) Oriental genera and (4) fritillaries.

Higher‐level phylogeny of the Ithomiinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae): classification, patterns of larval hostplant colonization and diversification

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.

Phylogeny of the Nymphalidae (Lepidoptera).

This phylogeny includes the widest taxon coverage of any morphological study on Nymphalid butterflies to date, and supports the monophyly and relationships of most presently recognized subgroups, providing strong evidence for the presently accepted phylogenetic scheme.

Many biologists tackle only narrow research topics, and test or develop hypotheses just within their re- s~ricted fields, while areas of evolution and ecol- og>/ are inadequately understood: species diversity and speciation are just two examples.

Sound production and hearing in the blue cracker butterfly Hamadryas feronia (Lepidoptera, nymphalidae) from Venezuela.

The preliminary results on the mechanism of sound production showed that males can produce clicks using only one wing, thus contradicting a previous hypothesis that it is a percussive mechanism.

An introduction to the study of insects
