Systematic Catalogue of the Entomofauna of the Madeira Archipelago and Selvagens Islands: Lepidoptera

  title={Systematic Catalogue of the Entomofauna of the Madeira Archipelago and Selvagens Islands: Lepidoptera},
  author={Ant{\'o}nio Franquinho Aguiar and Ole Karsholt},
Being the first of a series dealing with the entomofauna of the Madeira and Selvagens Islands, this catalogue is a list of all Lepidoptera recorded from this region of Macaronesia, with references to the relevant literature. The checklist includes 37 families, 211 genera and 331 species. 31 species are recorded from Madeira for the first time, and exact data and locality are given for these in the notes. 32 species, which had previously been recorded from Madeira, are removed from the list of… Expand

Checklist and type designations of New Zealand Aleocharinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae).
A checklist of all identified species of the staphylinid subfamily Aleocharinae known to occur in New Zealand and associated outer islands and one nomenclatural change is implemented: the preoccupied generic name Gyronotus Cameron is replaced by Marecon Blackwelder. Expand
Systematic Catalogue of the Cryptophagidae of the Madeira Archipelago and Selvagens Islands
Since T. V. WOLLASTON 1847 visited for first time the Madeiran archipelago he and other entomologists collected a lot of beetles from there. WOLLASTON published a few longer and shorter papersExpand
A revision of the genus Luzea (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Paederinae)
The genus Luzea Blackwelder, 1912 of the subtribe Medonina is revised. Eight species are recognised, among them L. shavrini sp. n. from Iran and L. schuelkei sp. n. from Yemen. The distribution ofExpand
DNA-based confirmation that the parasitic wasp Cotesia glomerata (Braconidae, Hymenoptera) is a new threat to endemic butterflies of the Canary Islands
It is suggested that this opportunistic, non-native parasitoid wasp will be a threat to P. cheiranthi and other endemic Canarian butterflies and comprehensive habitat conservation of the Canarian laurel forests could prevent penetration of the alien parasitoids and subsequent mortality of endemic butterfly populations.

Through a number of conversations with Marianne Horak, she has convinced me that the monotypic North American genus Pseudogalleria Ragonot, 1884, and the Old World genus Cryptophlebia Walsingham,Expand
On the distribution of broad-winged moths (Lepidoptera, Oecophoridae) of the Palaearctic fauna
The Palaearctic fauna of broad-winged moths (Oecophoridae) comprises 47 genera and 329 species, mainly by the genera with a small number of species, except for 2 genera, Pleurota (100 species) and Promalactis (85 species). Expand
Revision of the Subgenus Coprochara Mulsant & Rey of the Genus Aleochara Gravenhorst from Japan (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae: Aleocharinae).
A taxonomic revision of the subgenus Coprochara Mulsant & Rey, 1874 of the genus Aleochara Gravenhorst, 1802 in Japan is presented. The following three species are recognized: Aleochara (C.) vernaExpand
Arthropods and other Biota associated with the Azorean Trees and Shrubs : Juniperus brevifolia
This work aims to characterize the arthropods and other biota (lichens, bryophytes, vascular plants and birds) associated with the Azorean endemic tree, Juniperus brevifolia. This is the first of aExpand
Choreutidae of Madeira : Review of the known species and description of the male of Anthophila threnodes (Walsingham, 1910) (Lepidoptera)
The male of A. threnodes is described for the first time the male of Choreutidae recorded from Madeira, and the biology of this Madeiran endemic is discussed. Expand
On Madeira, the success of the speckled wood butterfly (Pararge aegeria) has coincided with declining populations of the Madeiran speckled wood (Pararge xiphia): is the colonist to blame?
Evidence is found for an altitudinal range-shift ‘uphill’ which was particularly evident in P. aegeria, which accounted for 25% of Pararge individuals in 2018 compared with historical date from 1986, when P. xiphia represented 78% of the Pararge population. Expand


The Lepidoptera of Bermuda: their food plants, biogeography, and means of dispersal.
The 183 species of Lepidoptera recorded from Bermuda are discussed with respect to their world distribution, origin, long-range dispersal capability, host plants, nomenclature, and the circumstancesExpand
A new species of Tortricidae (Lepidoptera) from Madeira
When studying the Microlepidoptera fauna of Madeira, the second author came across two puzzling big specimens of the Olethreutinae (Tortricidae): one, a male from the Staatssammlung fur Naturkunde,Expand
Catalogue of the Noctuidae in the Collection of the British Museum
The four subfamilies are modifications of the great Quadrifid section of the Noctuidæ, and are almost confined to the tropical and warmer temperate regions, few genera and species extending to the colder zones, and none to the arctic and alpine zones. Expand
Hawkmoths of the World: An Annotated and Illustrated Revisionary Checklist (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae)
The new checklist is clearly needed by anyone working on hawkmoths, but the book is a rather curious compilation in having more than half its pages devoted not to the main checklist but to the over 600 taxonomic and nomenclatural notes. Expand
A taxonomic revision of the Scopariinae from the Macaronesian Region (Lepidoptera: Pyraloidea: Crambidae)
The taxonomic and chorological results indicate that the colonisation of the archipelagos took place by passive dispersal on the ocean surface currents and winds; each archipelago has endemic scopariine species and the number of endemic species increases in proportion to growing distance from the continents.

The North American Moths of the General Phaeoses, Opogona, and Oinophila, with a Discussion of their Supergeneric Affinities (Lepidoptera: Tineidae)
The general biology, distribution, morphology, and classification are reviewed for the North American species of the moth genera Phaeoses, Opogona, and Oinophila, and it is concluded that they represent valid members of the family Tineidae. Expand
