The Biology and Zoogeography of the Legume-Feeding Patagonian-Fuegian White Butterfly Tatochila theodice (Lepidoptera: Pieridae)
TLDR
In the austral spring of 1988 detailed observations of this species were made from northwestern Patagonia to the Beagle Channel, leading to the rearing of both northern and far-southern populations and the discovery that Herrera and Field's Group A is even more differentiated from the rest of Tatochila than had been suspected.
Morphological Comparison of the Chorion of the Genera Pieriballia, Itaballia, and Perrhybris (Lepidoptera: Pieridae: Pierinae), and their Phylogenetic Implications
TLDR
The egg chorion of five species of three genera of Pierinae: Pieriballia, Itaballia and Perrhybris is described and compared and the main structural features: number and arrangement of longitudinal axes, projections and vestiges or reminiscent ribs, and quantification of ribs or cells are described.
The Immature Stages, larval food plants and biology of neotropical mistletoe butterflies. I. The Hesperocharis group (Pieridae: Anthocharidini)
TLDR
An overview of the morphology, larval food plants and general biology of the immature stages of the Hesperocharis group, one of two distantly related clades of Neotropical pierids that specialize on ‘mistletoes’ (Santalales).
Evolution of larval host plant associations and adaptive radiation in pierid butterflies
TLDR
In the Pierinae, a striking association between host plant, larval and adult behaviour, adult phenotype, and mimicry calls for further research into possible relationships between host specialization, plant chemistry and butterfly palatability.
Molecular and morphological divergence in the butterfly genus Lycaeides (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) in North America: evidence of recent speciation
TLDR
It is concluded that speciation has probably happened recently and the lack of genetic differentiation between the species is the product of either recent or ongoing gene flow at neutral loci, and/or an insufficiency of time for lineage sorting.

Intergradation of Tatochila autodice and T. blanchardii (Lepidoptera: Pieridae) in north-western Patagonia
TLDR
The Tatochila autodice and T. blanchardii intergrade in the only region where they are known to be in contact—north-western Argentine Patagonia, with decreasing influence of the Chilean blanchards both northwards and southwards.
The ecology and behavior of the high‐andean butterfly hypsochila wagenknechti (lepidoptera: Pieridae)
Hypsochila wagenknechti, a little‐known white butterfly of the high Andes, was studied afield in the Cordon del Cepo, central Chile, and in the puna of northern Argentina, Naturally‐occurring host
PHYSIOLOGICAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL RESPONSES TO PHOTOPERIOD AND TEMPERATURE AS DATA IN PHYLOGENETIC AND BIOGEOGRAPHIC INFERENCE
TLDR
This approach to phylogenetic reconstruction rests on an empirical observation and an evolutionary argument, both of which derive from classical studies of neotenous salamanders.
The Pierid butterflies of the genera Hypsochila Ureta, Phulia Herrich-Schäffer, Infraphulia Field, Pierphulia Field, and Piercolias Staudinger
TLDR
The Andean genera Hypsochila, Phulia, Infraphulia, Pierphulia, and Piercolias are revised and the species and subspecies are reviewed regarding their taxonomic history, identity, morphology, natural history, and distribution.
BUTTERFLIES AND PLANTS: A STUDY IN COEVOLUTION
TLDR
The relationship between butterflies and their food plants is investigated, the examination of patterns of interaction between two major groups of organisms with a close and evident ecological relationship, such as plants and herbivores.
