SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología 2023-03-11T19:14:35+01:00 Dr. Antonio Vives Open Journal Systems <p><strong>SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología</strong> is an international journal which has been published by the Sociedad Hispano-Luso-Americana de Lepidopterología since 1973. It includes empirical and theoretical research in all aspects of Lepidopterology (Systematic, Taxonomy, Phylogeny, Morphology, Bionomics, Ecology, Faunistics and Zoogeography, also bibliographical papers or those on the history of Lepidopterology, as well as book reviews on the topics mentioned) from all over the world with special emphasis of study of Conservation Biology.</p> General News 2023-02-17T18:17:40+01:00 A.

Vives Moreno Contribution to the knowledge of the Afrotropical Evonima Walker, 1865 generic complex with description of two new genera and two new species (Lepidoptera: Nolidae, Nolinae) 2023-03-11T19:14:26+01:00 Gy. M. László <p>The generic assignment of the African taxa of the genus Evonima Walker, 1865 is revised. Based on diagnostic characters of the male genitalia structure, a new genus VansonimaLászló, gen. n. is erected for E. littoralis (van Son, 1933) and E. ruhija Hacker, 2012. A further new genus, LaetonimaLászló, gen. n. is established for two undescribed species reminiscent externally of Evonima, which are also described here as new to science: L. smithi László, sp. n. and L. camerunica László. sp. n. Consequently, E. westafricana Hacker, 2012 is the only known true Evonima species occurring in Africa. The female genitalia of E. westafricana is described and illustrated here for the first time. New distribution records of E. westafricana and V. littoralis abyssinica (Hacker, 2012) are provided together with 14 colour and 9 black and white figures.</p> 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Gy. M. László Review of the Genus Orygocera Walsingham, 1897 from the Mascarenes with description of a new species (Lepidoptera: Depressariidae, Stenomatinae) 2023-03-11T19:12:53+01:00 M. Bippus <p>The species of the genus Orygocera Walsingham, 1897 in the Mascarene islands are reviewed. One new species Orygocera albanix Bippus, sp. n. is described. One subspecies, Orygocera amphitricha reunionensis Viette, 1991 is found to be a junior synonym of the nominal species Orygocera amphitricha amphitricha (Meyrick, 1910). Hostplants are recorded for one species and larval stages are illustrated for the first time of this genus.</p> 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 M.

S. Ortiz <p>Seventy species belonging to the families Cossidae, Limacodidae, Lasiocampidae, Saturniidae, Sphingidae, Drepanidae, Notodontidae, Nolidae and Erebidae have been recorded from the “Sierra María-Los Vélez” Natural Park (Almeria, Spain). Biogeographically, the Mediterranean elements (65.7%) are dominants, including three Iberian endemisms. The Euriasiatic ones are relatively well represented (17.1%). The phenological strategies of the species are mainly bivoltine (48.6%) and univoltine (45.7%) compared to those of the polyvoltines ones (5.7%). Those species which are documented in the Almeria province for the first time are 20.</p> 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 M. Garre, R. M. Rubio, J. J. Guerrero, A. S.

(Fabaceae), and damage and notes of its biology on Eucalyptus (Myrtaceae) commercial plantations in Sumatra, Indonesia (Lepidoptera: Erebidae) 2023-03-11T19:13:58+01:00 A. Raimon A. Laksamana N. G. H. B. Sinulingga I. A. Ferlianda M. N. Samosir S. B. Pane S. K. Kkadan W. de S. Tavares M. Tarigan A. Duran <p>Acacia mangium Willd. (Fabaceae), Eucalyptus pellita F. Muell. and Eucalyptus grandis W. Hill ex Maiden (Myrtaceae) are largely planted in Sumatra, Indonesia, where they are used as a raw material to produce commodities such as paper, pulp and viscose. Acacia and Eucalyptus are attacked by several species of defoliating Coleoptera and Lepidoptera in Sumatra. The objectives of this study were to report, for the first time, the guava moth, Ophiusa disjungens (Walker, 1858) on A. mangium, and damage and notes of its biology on Eucalyptus commercial plantations in Sumatra. Ophiusa disjungens on six- and seven-month-old A. mangium had an average of three larvae per tree in two commercial stands in Peranap Sector, Riau, Sumatra, on April 2018. The incidence of caterpillars and/or fresh damage (defoliation) of this pest on one-, three- to seven-, nine-, and 10-month old E. pellita and E. grandis ∞ E. pellita ranged 4.0–80.2% within 18 commercial stands in Sei Kebaro Sector, Riau, on April 2020. Caterpillars reared in a laboratory had period from pupa to adult (mean ± SD) of 25.5 ± 4.5 days. Ophiusa disjungens is reported for the first time on A. mangium, and incidence of its caterpillars and/or damage (defoliation) on Eucalyptus is up to 80.2% in Sumatra.</p> 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 A.

Duran Designation of lectotypes for some Spanish and other western European Melitaea taxa, some with mixed syntypic series of M. phoebe ([Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775) and M. ornata Christoph, 1893 (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) 2023-03-11T19:13:50+01:00 P. J. C. Russell L. Bartolozzi R. L. Hawkins W. J. Tennent T. Léger <p>Morphological characters of value in distinguishing Melitaea phoebe from M. ornata are exemplified from photographs of specimens from sympatric and partially synchronic populations in North Macedonia and Italy. Subspecies described as belonging to M. phoebe by several authors from specimens taken in Spain and other Western European countries are examined and their identities reviewed. Those which are shown to be subspecies of M. ornata are figured together with identification labels attached to the specimens. Where syntypes have been identified, lectotypes and paralectotypes are designated where appropriate. Some subspecies which are genuinely M. phoebe are commented upon. Eleven syntypes of M. phoebe occitanica are examined and found to comprise both M. phoebe and M. ornata; a phoebe lectotype is designated and its Type Locality is restricted to Barcelona, Spain. Lectotypes are also designated for the names bethunebakeri, ornatiformis, emipunica and punicata. Original identifications predate the separation of these two species and exemplify difficulties previous researchers had in separating them. M. ornata pseudornata is sunk in synomymy with M. ornata bethunebakeri. It is noted that some historic and often worn specimens are extremely difficult to identify with certainty.</p> 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 P. J. C. Russell, L. Bartolozzi, R. L.

C. Penco The article describes a new genus of Cossidae (Lepidoptera) from South America, Ceuroma Yakovlev, Naydenov & Penco, gen. n. (Type species Cossus mucoreus Herrich-Schäffer, [1853]). The new genus is mostly close to the Neotropical genus Allocryptobia Viette, 1951; a detailed diagnosis is given. The apomorphic feature of the new genus is the presence of two small clasper or harpe in the middle third on the abdominal edge of the valve. The distribution map is provided and 12 figures. 2020-09-30T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2020 R. V. Yakovlev, A. E. Naydenov, F. C.

Eighty-four new records are added among Geometridae (47 species), Euteliidae (1), Notodontidae (1), Erebidae (13), Nolidae (5) and Noctuidae (17). Deletion and reidentification of certain taxa that increase the faunistic catalog are discussed increasing the number of species up to 207 in the family Geometridae and up to 329 species in the Superfamily Noctuoidea. New records are given of the endemic species Charissa assoi (Redondo &amp; Gastón, 1997), Idaea alicantaria (Reisser, 1963), Idaea dromikos Hausmann, 2004, Scopula concinnaria (Duponchel, 1842), Colostygia hilariata (Pinker, 1954) and Hadena exspectata Hacker, 1996.
