Athis thysanete (Dyar, 1912) is one of the Mexican endemic species of Castniidae distributed in the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley. Based on collected material and field studies carried out in recent years, biological aspects and distribution of the species are clarified, and previously unknown bionomic details are provided. The species is recorded for...
The endemism, relationship, distribution and intrapopulation variability of the members of the Athis hechtiae (Dyar, 1910) complex are discussed, and Athis miastagma gonzalezi López-Godínez, García-Díaz and Turrent-Carriles, ssp. nov., an endemic taxon to the tropical deciduous forests of the states of Colima and Jalisco, Mexico, is described, name...
Telchin atymnius futilis (Walker, 1856) is one of the few Castniidae with distribution in Mexico that is not endemic to the country. Starting from greater knowledge of its geographical distribution and field studies carried out in recent years, bionomic details as well as previously unknown information on its ecology, plant associations and behavio...
Escalantiana Miller, 2019, is a genus of Castniidae endemic to Mexico, known for its underrepresentation in entomological collections around the world. Based on greater knowledge about the habits, behavior and distribution of its members, a new subspecies of Escalantiana chelone (Hopffer, 1856) with restricted distribution in the Tehuacán- Cuicatlá...
Mexico is the Mesoamerican country with the highest number of Castniidae species (12), most of which are found in the dry regions of the country. Among these, Athis hechtiae (Dyar, 1910) was considered a species widely distributed in Mexico after Athis miastagma (Dyar, 1925) was synonymized with A. hechtiae over two decades ago. A genetic and morph...
The genus Nicolaea Johnson, 1993, includes small species that are particularly inconspicuous in nature and rare in collections. Nicolaea viceta (Hewitson, 1868) is a species with a wide distribution, from Nicaragua to southern Brazil, but one that is also extremely rare in collections. This publication presents the first record of this species in M...
An extensive analysis of the Mexican, Central American and South American populations of the “deiphile complex” of the genus Prepona is conducted with respect to their distribution and morphological differentiation, in which the specific status of various taxa within the group is discussed. Based on the above, Prepona xenagoras Hewitson, 1875, Prep...
A new country record for Mexico is reported for Panoquina luctuosa luctuosa (Herrich-Schäffer, 1869), based on a specimen collected in the north part of the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley in the state of Puebla, Mexico. In addition, a lectotype is designated for Goniloba luctuosa Herrich-Schäffer, 1869.
Eurema albula celata (Felder, 1869) had been identified for both the Gulf and the Pacific of Mexico as the same subspecies; however, when making comparisons between specimens of both regions, a new subspecies was identified, which counts records in Guerrero and Oaxaca.
Athis hechtiae is a giant butterfly-moth endemic to Mexico, and frequently seen in the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley in Puebla and Oaxaca. Details on courtship as well as ecology, plant associations and other previously unknown bionomic and behavior details are provided.
A new species of Agathymus Freeman, obtained from the states of Puebla and Oaxaca, Mexico, is described. Some bionomic aspects and its possible endemism in the Tehuacán-Cuicatlán Valley is discussed.
A new species of Turnerina Freeman, obtained from the Tehuacán Valley, Puebla, Mexico, is described, named and illustrated. Some aspects of its behavior and habitat are mentioned. Its possible distribution and endemism in areas near the type locality is discussed.
The female of Athis jaliscana López & Porion is described and illustrated, and at the same time, four new locations are reported herein. Details on the distribution of the species, its habitat and details of its behavior are discussed.
In the present work, a new species of Prepona Boisduval, from Sierra Madre del Sur, which is sympatric with P. ibarra Beutelspacher, 1982, is described, named and illustrated. Aspects about the endemism of this new species and its possible distribution are discussed.
The rediscovery of Agathymus escalantei D. Stallings, Turner & V. Stallings, 1966, is reported in the xerophytic scrub of the Tehuacán Valley, Puebla, Mexico. The habitat where this species has been observed is shown and at the same time, the known male is described and illustrated.
Climate change has generated great problems during the last decade; one of them is the extinction and alteration of the distribution of species, affecting in a great way the lepidoptera (butterflies). The species geographic distribution modeling is a tool that provides geographic information about studied species. Thanks to this, potential distribu...
