Neotropical butterflies The Neotropics is the most biodiverse region on Earth. The species diversity of butterflies follows this pattern with more than 7700 named and described butterflies, or roughly, the 40% of known butterflies on Earth I work on Neotropical butterfly systematics in the broadest sense of the word - my interests and those of my collaborators and students are in studying butterfly diversity, understanding its spatial and temporal patterns, investigating the evolution and maintenance of diversity, and applying results to biodiversity conservation The nymphalid butterfly tribe Ithomiini (ithomiines) is one of the best studied groups of Lepidoptera, and has served as a model in research on biogeography, chemical ecology and evolution. The tribe is exclusively neotropical, containing approximately 370 species occurring in humid forests from sea level to 3000m, from Mexico to southern Brazil, Paraguay, and across three Caribbean islands Neotropical Butterflies Compiled here are photographs of neotropical butterflies from trips to Belize, Brazil, Ecuador, Panama, and Peru taken in recent years (2011-2017), with a few added from earlier trips since 2004
Most images of Neotropical type specimens were scanned from print photographs taken by Gerardo Lamas, representing a lifetime of dedicated and imaginative research and a great generosity in allowing them to be made available here. Digitization was carried out by the Tropical Andean Butterfly Diversity Project, funded by the Darwin Initiative Buy Butterflies of the Neotropical Region, Part 6 (9780947352233): Riodinidae: NHBS - Bernard D'Abrera, Hill House Publisher The Riodinidae with over 1,300 species are one of the least known families of butterflies in the Neotropics. Although they make up a healthy portion of the butterfly fauna, little is known of the life histories of the majority of the species and even less is known about their ecology and population biology
Abstract. The palatability and the ability of neotropical butterflies to escape after being detected, attacked and captured by wild kingbirds (Tyrannus melancholicus Vieillot), was investigated by the release of 668 individuals of 98 butterfly species close to the birds, during their usual feeding activities.Most of the butterflies were attacked and eaten Neotropical (Central/South America) butterflies for sale.

The Atlas of Neotropical Lepidoptera is a series covering the entire moth and butterfly fauna of the Neotropical faunal region, from Mexico to Patagonia (including nearby oceanic island groups). The Lepidoptera fauna currently entails about 45,000 described species but is estimated to encompass over 70,000 species when all are discovered and described Abstract. Neotropical butterflies in the nymphalid genera Pierella Herrich-Schäffer, 1865 (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae) and Cithaerias Hübner, 1819 (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae) are known to glide near ground level, and have a high forewing aspect ratio. The hind wings of Pierella are proportionately larger than those of Cithaerias, suggesting a potential role in gliding flight Moths and Butterflies, Lepidoptera photographs and description at American Insects site.

A molecular phylogeny of the neotropical butterfly genus Anartia (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae). Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 26: 46-55. Abstract- While Anartia butterflies have served as model organisms for research on the genetics of speciation, no phylogeny has been published to describe interspecific relationships Very few Neotropical butterflies were included in the histogram of 740 species given by White (1978).

Neotropical butterflies also exhibit well‐described ecological variation that likely structures the gut community, particularly in feeding behavior: adults of some species feed on nectar, while others feed on the juice of rotting fruits. Abstract Extremely long proboscides are rare among butterflies outside of the Hesperiidae, yet representatives of several genera of skipper butterflies possess proboscides longer than 50 mm. Althou.. I am a butterfly systematist and my research interests are oriented around Neotropical butterfly systematics in the broadest sense. In particular, my real passion lies in understanding species-level diversity of Neotropical butterflies, with an emphasis on some of the poorly studied butterfly groups and unexplored areas
The Oleriina is one of the most speciose subtribes of the neotropical nymphalid butterfly tribe Ithomiini. They are widely distributed across the Andes and Amazonian lowlands and like other ithomiines they are involved in complex mimicry rings. This subtribe is of particular interest because it cont This is the first comprehensive catalogue of the hostplants of the butterfly caterpillars which occur in the Neotropical region (i.e. Central and South America and the Caribbean) .
Many butterflies from all feeding guilds are attracted to moist soil which is often wetted by urine. These are pre-dominately male butterflies seeking sodium and albu-min, presumably to increase their reproductive success (DOWNES 1973, ARMS et al. 1974, BECK et al. 1999).

Background: The temporal and geographical diversification of Neotropical insects remains poorly understood because of the complex changes in geological and climatic conditions that occurred during the Cenozoic. To better understand extant patterns in Neotropical biodiversity, we investigated the evolutionary history of three Neotropical swallowtail Troidini genera (Papilionidae)
Introduction. The ceraunus blue butterfly, Hemiargus ceraunus (Fabricius), is a widespread Neotropical butterfly common in southern portions of the United States. It is common in various open, sunny habitats including roadsides, fallow agricultural land, weedlots, utility corridors, scrubs, open woodlands, yards and parks Stanford Libraries' official online search tool for books, media, journals, databases, government documents and more
Astraptes fulgerator , first described in 1775, is a common and widely distributed neotropical skipper butterfly (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae). We combine 25 years of natural history observations in northwestern Costa Rica with morphological study and DNA barcoding of museum specimens to show that A. fulgerator is a complex of at least 10 species in this region We test whether palatability of Neotropical butterflies is associated with distribution of mass to the thorax and abdomen. Thoracic mass is predominantly muscle mass, whereas abdominal mass includes organs of digestion, food storage, and reproduction. To escape from predation, butterflies palatable to the rufous-tailed jacamar (Galbula ruficauda) use fast, erratic flight, whereas unpalatable. D'Abrera BL.

The Blue Morpho butterfly (Morpho menelaus) is a species of neotropical butterfly that has iridescent blue wings (the females are not as brilliantly colored as the males and have a brown edge with white spots surrounding the iridescent blue area). The undersides (visible when the butterfly is resting) are brown with bronze-colored eyespots The butterfly fossil record is so depauperate that most of what we know today about the age of butterflies is based on relaxed clock estimates. Here we compile relaxed clock-based crown age estimates for clades of Neotropical butterflies from 6 families, as well as age estimates for more than 400 pairs of sister species included in 102 genera We employed adult Neotropical butterflies as a study system to ask three questions: First, how does gut microbial community composition vary across host individuals, Nevertheless, gut flora varied widely among individuals and species. On average, a pair of butterflies shared 21% of their bacterial species and 6% of their fungi Ten species in one: DNA barcoding reveals cryptic species in the neotropical skipper butterfly Astraptes fulgerator Paul D.

Experimental butterflies had a more dispersed pattern of orientation than control butterflies. The average direction adopted was northeast, 160° anticlockwise to the natural migratory direction. Unmanipulated control butterflies adopted two diametrically opposed orientations: one shifted 33° clockwise, and another 147° anticlockwise, to the migratory direction Neotropical butterflies in urban forest 9 (Fig. 4(e)), with their larvae found on the native trees (Table 2).

One example of this is the neotropical skipper butterfly. This species seemed rather simple until closer observation. Once examined, there were many signs signaling to diversity and more than one species in these butterflies.
