Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society | Year: 2017

The hypothetical ground plan of the lepidopterous family Zygaenidae is reconstructed based on a review of the apomorphic characters of the Zygaenoidea. Five subfamilies are recognised and their characters discussed in detail: Inouelinae new subfamily, Procridinae, Chalcosiinae, Callizygaeninae and Zygaeninae. A review of the possible autapomorphies of Procridinae is provided. The autapomorphic structure in the receptaculum seminis in the spermatheca of the Procridinae females is newly described as bursa utricularis.

New data are provided on the ecology, phenology and morphology of the zygaenid moth Pollanisus eumetopus Turner, 1926. The known distribution of the species is significantly increased. The chaetotaxy of the first instar larva is described and the setal arrangement appears to be characteristic for the Artonini. The larvae possess three anal combs similar to other species of the genus Pollanisus and of the tribe Artonini. The presence of a small ball of silk spun on the outside of the cocoon is a character apparently typical of the genus Pollanisus but has not been described for other Procridinae. The colour of ocelli, formerly considered an important character for distinguishing species of Pollanisus, is variable in dried specimens of P. eumetopus and therefore not suitable for species identification.

Illiberis (Alterasvenia) cernyi sp. nov. is described from northern Thailand. A key to the males and females of all known species of the subgenus Alterasvenia Alberti, 1971, is provided.


The hitherto unknown males of Zygaenoprocris (Zygaenoprocris) eberti (Alberti, 1968) were attracted by sex pheromones in Afghanistan. Conspecificity with the female holotype was confrmed by using DNA barcoding. A description of the male and data on the habitat of this species are provided. A key to the subgenera of the genus Zygaenoprocris Hampson, 1900, and the species of the subgenus Zygaenoprocris Hampson, 1900, is given.

Illiberis (.Alterasvenia) banmauka sp. nov. is described from China and Myanmar (Burma). A key to the males and females of all known species of the subgenus Alterasvenia Alberti, 1971, is provided.

Nota Lepidopterologica | Year: 2014

Critical taxonomic comments are provided on the section dealing with the Zygaenidae in volume 3 of Moths of Europe (Leraut 2012). A number of newly described nominal taxa in that work are here synonymised as are nominal subgenera and subspecies that were reinstated as valid. At the subgeneric level these are Hesychia Hübner, [1819] (syn. rev.), Coelestis Burgeff, 1926 (syn. rev.) and Santolinophaga Burgeff, 1926 (syn. rev.), all synonyms of the monophyletic subgenus Mesembrynus Hübner, [1819], and Coelestina Holik, 1953 (syn. rev.), Epizygaena Jordan, 1907 (syn. rev.) and Lictoria Burgeff, 1926 (syn. rev.), all synonyms of the paraphyletic subgenus Agrumenia Hübner, [1819]. At the subspecific level Adscita geryon parisiensis Leraut, 2012 (syn. n.) and A. geryon aeris (Verity, 1946) (syn. rev.) are synonyms of A. geryon geryon (Hübner, [1813]). Zygaena exulans altaretensis Le Charles, 1942 (syn. rev.) and Z. exulans bourgognei Le Charles, 1942 (syn. rev.) are synonyms of Z. exulans exulans (Hohenwarth, 1792). Zygaena trifolii vindilisensis Leraut, 2012 (syn. n.) is a synonym of Z. trifolii subsyracusia Verity, 1925. Zygaena carniolica besseensis Leraut, 2012 (syn. n.) and Z. carniolica rogervillensis Leraut, 2012 (syn. n.) are synonyms of Z. carniolica modesta Burgeff, 1914. Zygaena hilaris nigriventris Leraut, 2012 (syn. n.) is a synonym of Z. hilaris chrysophaea Le Charles, [1934]. Zygaena rhadamanthus boixolsis Aistleitner, 1990 (syn. n.) is a synonym of Z. rhadamanthus rhadamanthus Esper, [1789], Z. rhadamanthus cleui Dujardin, 1956 (syn. rev.) is a synonym of Z. rhadamanthus grisea Oberthür, 1909, and Z. rhadamanthus aragonia Tremewan, 1961 (stat. rev.), Z. rhadamanthus azurea Burgeff, 1914 (stat. rev.) and Z. rhadamanthus aurargentea Mazel, 1979 (stat. rev.) are reinstated as valid subspecies.

Based on morphology, Adscita {Adscita) dujardini sp. nov. is described from Italy, France, Switzerland and Slovenia. The differences from A. (A.) albanica (Naufock, 1926) are discussed. The specific status of the new taxon is also confirmed by DNA data. A key to the western Palaearctic species of the genus Adscita Retzius, 1783, is provided.

A differential diagnosis of the genera Pseudophacusa gen. n., Phacusa Walker, 1854, and Zama Herrich-Schäffer, 1855, is provided. KEY WORDS: Lepidoptera, Zygaenidae, Procridinae, Procridini, Pseudophacusa, P. multidentata, mimicry, COI, mitochondrial DNA barcoding, new genus, new species, Myanmar (Burma), China, Laos. © 2016, Soc Hispano-Luso-Amer Lepidopterologia-Shilap.
