About this book

Language: French with bilingual abstracts in English and French

Volume 3 (Rhopalocera 2) of Lépidoptères de Guyane is dedicated to several groups of Rhopalocera (mainly Nymphalidae and Riodinidae), that are studied in a systematic and very complete way. Christian Brévignon deals exhaustively with the Satyrinae (73 spp.), as two other chapters on the Riodinidae: the Symmachia (Jean-Yves Gallard) (24 spp.) and the complex of Euselasia euoras (Christian Brévignon) (7 spp.). Xavier Choimet presents three genera of Nymphalidae: Charaxinae: Prepona (10 spp.), Memphis (females) (9 spp.) and Agrias (3 spp.). Yves Lever describes and illustrates all the forms known in French Guiana of Heliconius melpomene, one of the most widely spread and most variable South American Heliconiinae. All these forms, whose certain remained previously not described, are illustrated and classified in a didactic way, as a function of the variations of the wing pattern.

Summary in French:
Le tome 3 (Rhopalocères 2) des Lépidoptères de Guyane est dédié à plusieurs groupes de Rhopalocères (surtout des Nymphalidae et des Riodinidae), qui sont étudiés de manière systématique, très complète. L'article de Christian BRÉVIGNON sur les Satyrinae traite ce groupe de manière exhaustive (73 spp.) comme les deux articles sur une partie des Riodinidae : les Symmachia (Jean-Yves GALLARD) (24 spp.) et le complexe d'Euselasia euoras (Christian BRÉVIGNON) (7 spp.). Xavier CHOIMET traite de trois genres de Nymphalidae : Charaxinae : les Prepona (10 spp.), les Memphis (femelles) (9 spp.) et les Agrias (3 spp.). Yves LEVER détaille en les nommant la totalité des morphes (ou formes) connus en Guyane d'Heliconius melpomene, un des Heliconiinae sud-américains les plus répandus mais aussi les plus variables. Tous ces morphes, dont certains font l'objet d'une nomination nouvelle, sont illustrés et classés de manière très didactique en fonction des variations de l'ornementation des différentes zones alaires.
