6th June 2014; I found a very nice picture of a Penaincisalia butterfly in your web page. Actually, this is a new species to science in a small species-group Im reviewing taxonomically and it was the subject of my PhD thesis. I supose you didnt collect this specimen but any other information about exact locality it will be very nice for me. Carlos Prieto

6th June 2014; I found a very nice picture of a Penaincisalia butterfly in your web page. Actually, this is a new species to science in a small species-group Im reviewing taxonomically and it was the subject of my PhD thesis. I supose you didnt collect this specimen but any other information about exact locality it will be very nice for me. Carlos Prieto

LISTA PRELIMINAR DE LOS LYCAENIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA: RHOPALOCERA)  EN BOLIVIA


PRELIMINARY CHECKLIST FOR LYCAENIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA: RHOPALOCERA)
IN BOLIVIA

Palabras clave: Lycaenidae, Bolivia, nuevas citas, Theclinae, Eumaeini
Keywords:
Lycaenidae, Bolivia, new records, Theclinae, Eumaeini

La familia
Lycaenidae en Sudamérica esta compuesta por las subfamilias Theclinae y
Polyommatinae. Las dos subfamilias se diferencian en Sudamérica por tener 10 (Theclinae)
versus 11 (
Polyommatinae) venas en las alas anteriores. De las Theclinae solamente esta
presente el tribu
Eumaeini en el continente, el cual a la vez esta mucha mas diverso que la
subfamilia
Polyommatinae.

Robbins (2004a) destaca que 80 de los 83 géneros conocidos de la tribu
Eumaeini se
distribuyen en el Neotropico, con los restantes conocidos en el Holartico. En el 2004 se
conocieron 1.130 especies de la tribu, de los cuales un 80% (aproximadamente 910 especies)
viven en Sudamérica, este numero incluyó 238 especies que no fueron descritas hasta entonces
(Robbins 2004a,b).

En Bolivia el conocimiento de la Familia
Lycaenidae es pobre. Actualmente se tienen
registradas solamente 56 especies (Gareca et. al., 2006), 45 de ellas corresponden a la tribu
Eumaeini y los restantes 11 a la subfamilia Polyommatinae. De los taxa citados en Gareca et
al. (2006) una amplia mayoría son taxa descritas desde el país (Robbins 2004b).

Estas 56 especies de
Lycaenidae solamente equivalen a un 3% con respecto a las 1.702
especies registradas para Bolivia (Gareca et al. 2006), no obstante nosotros estimamos que
existen más que 300 especies de solamente
Eumaeini para el país.

Los
Eumaeini vuelan rápidos y solitarios y son difíciles para diferenciar, resultando bajo el
número de colectas en los museos. Existen especies que a pesar de su amplia distribución han
sido colectadas muy pocas veces. Desde 25 años el ultimo autor esta aumentando la cantidad
de
Eumaeini en el Museo de Historia Natural Smithsonian, resultando en la colección de
Eumaeini mas grande de la parte neotropical, la base para el presente trabajo.

El presente trabajo aumenta la lista de
Lycaenidae de Bolivia desde 56 a 153 especies. Todas
las nuevas citas se refieren a especies dentro del tribu
Eumaeini. Los autores estiman más de
330 especies de
Lycaenidae para Bolivia, con la gran mayoría de citas adicionales por esperar
en el tribu
Eumaeini.

MÉTODOS


El mayor trabajo fue realizado en una visita de dos semanas al Museo de Historia Natural
Smithsonian (USNM), donde se anotaron los especimenes de la tribu
Eumaeini provenientes
de Bolivia. Todos los taxa fueron determinados por el tercer autor del presente trabajo.

También aumentamos colectas depositadas en el Museo de Historia Natural Alcides
D´Orbignyi en Cochabamba (MHNC).

La fuente de cada registro de especie esta dado en la tabla de resultados, donde usamos las
fuentes originales, quiere decir, si una especie fue citada por Gareca et al. (2006), estamos
dando la fuente original y no solamente la publicación de Gareca et al. (2006).  La cita de la
fuente MHNNKM (Museo de Historia Natural Noel Kempff Mercado) proviene de materialcolectado durante el proyecto Áreas Claves de Biodiversidad (ACB).

RESULTADOS

Con el presente trabajo
Eumaeini se incrementa de 45 a 141 especies en Bolivia (ver el
Apéndice). En la lista actual no se tomaron en cuenta las cuatro especies no descritas, cuales
fueron quitadas de la lista de Gareca et al. (2006), por lo tanto se aumentaron 100 nuevas citas
para Bolivia. Con este aumento también se amplia el total de la familia
Lycaenidae de 56 a
153 y el total de especies de mariposas diurnas conocidas desde Bolivia a 1.799.

DISCUSIÓN

Aunque el aumento del conocimiento de los
Eumaeini con la presente publicación es
considerable, pensamos que en Bolivia deberían existir por lo menos unas 300 especies de esta
tribu. Como muchas especies son difíciles de colectar y además poca gente está interesada en
colectarlos nos faltan muchos registros aun. No obstante la amplia distribución de algunas
especies nos deja presumir este número para Bolivia.

El caso de los
Polyommatinae parece ser aun más complejo. No existen amplias revisiones de
los géneros del grupo y su taxonomía es compleja. No obstante el grupo no es tan diverso
como los
Eumaeini y las adiciones en su totalidad para la fauna de Lepidoptera de Bolivia será
menor en todos los casos. Pensamos que por lo menos deben ocurrir entre 30 y 50 especies de
este grupo en Bolivia.

Los resultados presentes de la familia
Lycaenidae, que anteriormente representaba solamente
el 3% de especies en Bolivia, llegan a un 8,9% en su relación con las otras familias de
mariposas diurnas en nuestro país (ver Figura 1.). Por lo tanto en este momento la familia
Lycaenidae sobrepasa la diversidad de la familia de Pieridae y llega ser la cuarta familia mas
diversa de mariposas diurnas en Bolivia.

Nymphalidae 41.4%
Riodinidae 13.6%
Lycaenidae 8.9%
Pieridae 7.5%
Papilionidae 2.9%
Hesperiidae 31.4%

CONCLUSIONES

Estamos aun lejos de documentar todas las especies de
Lycaenidae para Bolivia. No obstante
esperamos que la presente lista incentive a trabajar con este grupo interesante de mariposas.
No solamente falta documentar mas especies para Bolivia, sino también iniciar estudios
ecológicos de las especies de esta familia tan diversa.

LISTA PRELIMINAR DE LOS LYCAENIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA: RHOPALOCERA)  EN BOLIVIA


PRELIMINARY CHECKLIST FOR LYCAENIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA: RHOPALOCERA)
IN BOLIVIA

Keywords: Lycaenidae, Bolivia, new records, Theclinae, Eumaeini

The Lycaenidae family in South America is composed of the subfamilies of Theclinae and Polyommatinae. The two subfamilies differ in South America have 10 (Theclinae) versus 11 (Polyommatinae) veins in the forewings. Of this only Theclinae Eumaeini tribe present in the continent, which in turn is much more diverse than the Polyommatinae subfamily. 

Robbins (2004a) notes that 80 of the 83 known genera of the tribe is Eumaeini distributed in the Neotropics, with the other known in the Holarctic. In 2004, 1130 known species of the tribe, of which 80% (approximately 910 species) live in South America, this number included 238 species that were not previously described (Robbins 2004a, b).

In Bolivia, the knowledge of the Lycaenidae family is poor. There are now
recorded only 56 species (Gareca et. al., 2006), 45 of them belong to the tribe
Eumaeini and the remaining 11 to the subfamily Polyommatinae. Of the taxa cited in Gareca et
al. (2006) a vast majority are from the country described taxa (Robbins 2004b).

These 56 species of
Lycaenidae only equivalent to 3% compared to 1702
species recorded for Bolivia (Gareca et al. 2006), however we estimate that
There are over 300 species of
Eumaeini only for the country.
The
Eumaeini fly rapidly and lonely and difficult to differentiate, resulting in the
number of collections in museums. There are species that, despite its wide distribution have
rarely been collected. Since 25 years the last author is increasing the amount
of
Eumaeini in the Smithsonian Natural History Museum, resulting in the collection of
Eumaeini largest neotropical part, the basis for this work.

This study increases the list of
Lycaenidae in Bolivia from 56 to 153 species. All
new appointments concern
Eumaeini species within the tribe. They estimate more than
330 species of
Lycaenidae in Bolivia, with the vast majority of additional appointments expected
Eumaeini in the tribe.

METHODS

The major work was done in a two-week visit to the Museum of Natural History
Smithsonian
(USNM), where specimens were recorded from the tribe
Eumaeini
Bolivia. All taxa were determined by the third author of this paper.

We also increased collections are deposited at the Natural History Museum Alcides
D'orbignyi
in Cochabamba (MHNC).

The source of each record of species is given in the results table, where we use the
original sources, that is, if a species was cited for Gareca et al. (2006), we
giving the original source and not only the publication of Gareca et al. (2006). The appointment of
MHNNKM source (Museum of Natural History Noel Kempff Mercado) comes during the project materialcolectado Key Biodiversity Areas (CBA).
 

RESULTS

In the present work
Eumaeini increases from 45 to 141 species in Bolivia (see
Appendix). In the current list were not taken into account the four undescribed species, which
were removed from the list of Gareca et al. (2006), so 100 new appointments were increased
Bolivia.

With this increase also extends the family Lycaenidae total of 56 to total 153 species of butterflies known from Bolivia to 1799.

DISCUSSION

Although increased awareness of
Eumaeini with this publication is
considerable, we think that Bolivia should be at least 300 species of this
tribe. How many species are also difficult to collect and few people are interested in, collectively missing many records yet. Despite the wide distribution of some
species, let us assume this number to Bolivia.

The case of
Polyommatinae seems to be even more complex. There are extensive reviews of
gender of the group and its taxonomy is complex. However the group is not diverse
as
Eumaeini and additions in its entirety to the Lepidoptera fauna of Bolivia will be
lower in all cases. We think that at least must occur between 30 and 50 species of
this group in Bolivia.

The results present in the family
Lycaenidae, which previously represented only
3% of species in Bolivia, reaching 8.9% in relation to the other families
butterflies in our country (see Figure 1.). So at this time the family
Lycaenidae exceeds the diversity of the Pieridae family and becomes the fourth family more
variety of butterflies in Bolivia.

Nymphalidae 41.4%
Riodinidae 13.6%
Lycaenidae 8.9%
Pieridae 7.5%
Papilionidae 2.9%
Hesperiidae 31.4%

CONCLUSIONS

We are still far to document all species of
Lycaenidae in Bolivia. However
we hope that this list incentive to work with this interesting group of butterflies.
Not only lack documented more species for Bolivia, but also initiate studies
ecological species of this diverse family.

d. 16 january 2016; After nearly nine years ago, when I photographed this unknowns Ministreak species in Caranavi, Yungas, Bolivia, where I perhaps thought it must be an undescribed species? I found it on the website "Learn about Butterflies and Moths". So finally I got the name on it. It is: Cleon Ministreak, Ministrymon cleon (Fabricius, 1775).
d. 11 january 2014; Dear Tom, There are several hairstreak species which have underside wing patterns similar to those shown on Andersen''s pictures, and I''m not even sure if both images represent the same species. I''d think they belong to Nicolaea, close to Nicolaea fabulla, but I suggest you ask Bob Robbins. Best regards, Gerardo
d. 10 january 2014; I sent it over to Gerardo Lamas in Peru to hear whether he knows it. Sincerely, Tom N. Kristensen. See more about the unknown Lycaenidae species on the website; fugleognatur.dk
d. 8 january 2014; I even think this unknown species is closest family with Calycopis centoripa as the red band on the rear wing bottom has a little different modes around discal-spot. Lars Andersen.
d. 8 january 2014; Mail from Kim Garwood d. 8 january 2014; Those are very nice shots of the mystery Nicolaea. There are quite few undescribed species in this genus, looking on Butterflies of America. I don't think anybody knows which one yours might be at this point. Thanks, K
d. 11 october 2013; This butterfly is probably an undescribed species related to Nicolaea demilineata from Paraguay. Atronox on Neotropical Butterfly Forum.
d. 27 march 2011; Nicolaea bagrada? besidia? (could be new sp.) ID from Jorge Bizarro.
