Abstract Kallima albofasciata Moore 1877 (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae), a species of Oakleaf butterfly reported for the first time from the Andaman Islands in 1874, was recognized as an insular endemic in 1877. Studies so far indicate that it is restricted to the contiguous islands of South and Middle Andamans. On these islands it apparently has a very localized distribution, giving rise to fears that it may be vulnerable and could face the threat of extinction with increasing developmental… Expand

Color pattern evolution in Vanessa butterflies (Nymphalidae: Nymphalini): non‐eyespot characters
TLDR
Overall, interspecific directional character state evolution of non‐eyespot color patterns is relatively rare in Vanessa, with a majority of color pattern elements showing non‐variable, non‐directional, or ambiguous characterState evolution. Expand
Chromosome‐level reference genome assembly and gene editing of the dead‐leaf butterfly Kallima inachus
TLDR
The wings of adults with the pigmentary gene ebony knocked out using CRISPR/Cas9 showed phenotypes in which the orange dorsal region and entire ventral surface darkened, suggesting its vital role in the ecological adaption of dead‐leaf butterflies. Expand
