About this book

Language: Spanish

This monograph of the Fauna Ibérica series is devoted to the five families (Papilionidae, Hesperiidae, Pieridae, Riodinidae, Lycaenidae and Nymphalidae) that are grouped in the superfamily Papilionoidea, the group of Lepidoptera widely known as the butterflies, of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.

The authors have made an effort to compile the most relevant information on each species as well as the biological information which refers specifically to the Ibero-Balearic region: taxonomic position, geographic distribution, life history, ecology and phenology, parasitoids (or other natural enemies) and the current conservation status. These details are supported by an extensive bibliography. The descriptions, dichotomic keys and illustrations will facilitate the species identification. To assist this last purpose the volume includes a collection of colour plates to illustrate the adults of the almost 230 Ibero-Balearic species.

The final part of the volume consists of a thorough, detailed nomenclatorial list of the taxa represented in the study area. The making of such compilation was remarkably complex given the numerous formal names that have eventually been applied to some of the studied taxa.

Summary in Spanish:
Esta monografía de la Serie Fauna Ibérica está dedicada a las cinco familias (Papilionidae, Hesperiidae, Pieridae, Riodinidae, Lycaenidae y Nymphalidae) que componen la superfamilia Papilionoidea, es decir el grupo de Lepidópteros más comúnmente denominado "mariposas diurnas", en la península Ibérica e islas Baleares.

Los autores han hecho un esfuerzo para condensar lo más relevante de la información sobre cada especie, así como de los detalles biológicos que se refieren específicamente a la región íbero-balear: posición taxonómica, distribución, biología, ecología y fenología, parasitoides u otros enemigos naturales y estatus conocido desde el punto de vista de la conservación. Toda la información se documenta proporcionando una extensa bibliografía. Las descripciones, claves dicotómicas e ilustraciones ayudarán a una correcta identificación. Con este propósito el volumen incluye, además, un cuadernillo de ilustraciones en color con fotografías de los adultos de las casi 230 especies íbero-baleares.

La parte final del texto recoge una amplia y minuciosa actualización nomenclatural de los táxones representados en la zona estudiada, cuya compilación ha sido especialmente compleja dada la profusión de nombres que a lo largo de la historia se ha aplicado a algunos de las grupos taxonómicos tratados.
