SHILAP Revista de lepidopterología 2023-12-30T19:11:33+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> The Pterophoridae fauna of Khakassia Republic and south of Krasnoyarsk region (Russia) (Insecta: Lepidoptera) 2023-12-30T19:11:33+01:00 Per Ya. Ustjuzhanin Roman E. Maksimov <p>The article gives a faunal list of Pterophoridae species of Khakassia Republic and the south of Krasnoyarsk region. We have examined 41 localities, as a result of which, 24 species are reported for this region for the first time. In total, 40 Pterophoridae species are currently known for the Republic of Khakassia and for the south of Krasnoyarsk region.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Notocelia mediterranea (Obraztsov, 1952) - a widespread cryptic species in Europe (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) 2023-12-30T19:11:30+01:00 Jan Sumpich Peter Huemer Jacques Nel Thierry Varenne <p><em>Notocelia mediterranea</em> (Obraztsov, 1952) was until recently widely overlooked and combined with its sister<br>species, <em>Notocelia incarnatana</em> (Hübner, [1800]). However, detailed evaluation of forewing pattern and genitalia of both sexes, as well as DNA barcode divergence clearly support the existence of two separate species. A brief comparison of the habitus of both species, as well as photographs of adults and genitalia of both sexes are given. Female genitalia of <em>Notocelia mediterranea</em> are detailed here for the first time. First records for Spain, France, Austria, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, and Montenegro are also given.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Jan Sumpich, Peter Huemer, Jacques Nel, Thierry Varenne The larva and the food plant of Dirphia sombrero Le Cerf, 1934 (Lepidoptera: Saturnidae, Hemileucinae) 2023-12-30T19:11:27+01:00 Vitor O.

V. Corley João Nunes Jorge Rosete Joaquim Teixeira Ana Valadares <p>Eight species are added to the Portuguese Lepidoptera fauna, of which two are new for the Iberian Peninsula, and one species deleted, mainly as a result of fieldwork undertaken by the authors and others in 2022. In addition, second and third records for the country, new province records and new host-plant data for a number of species are included. A summary of recent papers affecting the Portuguese fauna is included.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 First record of Pyralis farinalis Linnaeus, 1758 from India (Pyralidae: Pyralinae) 2023-12-30T19:11:21+01:00 Muzafar Riyaz Savarimuthu Ignacimuthu <p>In the present report, we highlight the first occurrence of <em>Pyralis farinalis</em> Linnaeus, 1758 (Pyraloidea: Pyralidae) from India. The specimen was collected from Tehsil Herman, district of Shopian in Kashmir valley, which is situated at the foothills of Pir Panjal Mountain range-Northwestern Himalayas, India; it is 50 km away from Srinagar, Kashmir.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The taxonomic position of the Neotropical genus Macrocirca Meyrick, 1931 with new synonymy and description of one new species (Lepidoptera: Depressariidae, Depressariinae) 2023-12-30T19:11:18+01:00 Vitor O. Becker <p><em>Macrocirca strabo</em> Meyrick, 1931, described in the Hyponomeutidae, is transferred to the Depressariidae, Depressariinae. A new species, <em>Macrocirca moseri</em> Becker, sp. nov., from Brazil, is described. <em>Odonna</em> Clarke, 1982, syn. nov. is a junior synonym of <em>Macrocirca</em> Meyrick, 1931; <em>M. passiflorae</em> (Clarke, 1982), comb. nov. and <em>M. xenodora</em> (Clarke, 1982), comb. nov. are included in <em>Macrocirca</em>.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Molecular identification of some immature Lepidoptera causing Quercus L., defoliation in Lorestan province, western Iran (Insecta: Lepidoptera) 2023-12-30T19:11:15+01:00 Asadollah Hosseini-Chegeni Majid Tavakoli <p><em>Quercus</em> L., dominate almost 40% of Iran’s forest area. The second destructive group of insects is defoliator Lepidoptera distributed in the Zagros forests of Iran. We assessed Lepidoptera communities in Zagros forests ecosystems in Lorestan province, western Iran during a ca. 2-yr period that coincided with defoliation outbreaks experienced by this area. A number of 500 lepidopteran larva feeding <em>Quercus</em> leaves handy were collected. The phylogenetic relationship of Lepidoptera was analysed using BEAST software based on the Bayesian Inference method. In total, 14 lepidopteran taxa were identified based on DNA sequences of their immature stages. Six genera and eight species were identified using BLASTn. Here we developed a COI barcoding-based approach to Lepidoptera species delimitation.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 New data on the genus Scythris Hübner, [1825] from the Canary Islands (Spain), with description of six new species (Lepidoptera: Scythrididae) 2023-12-30T19:11:12+01:00 Per Falck <p>The <em>Scythris petrella</em> species-group in the Canary Islands is revised based on external morphology, genitalia and DNA barcodes. Eleven species are recognized. Six species are described as new: <em>Scythris aronaella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife), <em>Scythris moyaella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Gran Canaria), <em>Scythris rupemella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Gran Canaria), <em>Scythris linealbella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife), <em>Scythris solisella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: El Hierro and Tenerife) and <em>Scythris ochrelinella</em> Falck, sp. nov. (Spain: Tenerife). <em>Scythris hierroella</em> Klimesch, 1986, syn. nov. is treated as a synonym of <em>Scythris petrella</em> Walsingham, 1908. Photographs of adults and genitalia of all species are provided. All species are DNA barcoded. Analyses of the DNA barcodes support the identifications and distinctiveness of each species as they all appear well-supported and genetically isolated.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Per Falck Lepidoptera collected in S.

Vishnevskaya <p>An annotated checklist of Geometridae collected in Southwest Mongolia is presented. In total 51 species are recorded. Eight species are recorded as new for the fauna of Mongolia, <em>Alcis depravata</em> (Staudinger, 1892), <em>Holoterpna diagrapharia</em> Püngeler, 1900, <em>Scotopteryx supproximaria</em> (Staudinger, 1892) <em>Cataclysme riguata </em>(Hübner, [1813]), <em>Rhodostrophia crypta</em> Viidalepp &amp; Kostkuk, 2020,<em> Idaea ossiculata</em> (Lederer, 1870), <em>Scopula </em><em>divisaria</em> (Christoph, 1893), and <em>Casilda consecraria</em> (Staudinger, 1871). Habitus and genitalia are illustrated for these species. Four of them were DNA-barcoded, as well as three other species. Results of DNA barcoding are discussed.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The protected species Pseudophilotes bavius hungarica (Diószeghy, 1913): oviposition strategy, new records and conservation (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) 2023-12-30T19:10:39+01:00 Andrei Crisan Tibor-Csaba Vizauer László Rákosy <p><em>Pseudophilotes bavius hungarica</em> (Diószeghy, 1913) is a Transylvanian endemic of conservation interest. We made observations regarding its oviposition strategy, and established its preference for floral stems of <em>Salvia nutans</em> L. taller than five centimeters. <em>Salvia transsilvanica</em> Schur was also confirmed as a host plant for <em>P. bavius hungarica</em>. The distribution map of this subspecies was completed in two localities from the south of the Transylvanian Plain, Râpa Lechint¸a and Râpa Da˘ta˘ reni. We reported presence of <em>P. bavius</em> in Tulcea County for the first time, thus supporting the hypothesis that it colonised Dobrogea via Ukraine alongside <em>P. bavius bavius</em> (Eversmann, 1832) and it did not spread from Turkey and Bulgaria alongside <em>P. bavius egea</em>. Many conservation threats that may lead to population fragmentation and extinction have been identified.</p> 2023-12-30T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Andrei Crisan, Tibor-Csaba Vizauer, László Rákosy A new species of the genus Orthotmeta Warren, 1896 from west Papua, Indonesia (Lepidoptera: Geometridae, Ennominae, Eutoeini) 2023-12-30T19:10:35+01:00 Andrés Expósito-Hermosa <p><em>Orthotmeta robdevosi</em> Expósito, sp. n. from west Papua, Indonesia.
