About this book

Incorporates biological and ecological data from every relevant publication and includes the first comprehensive revision of all the acraeines of any Neotropical country. A detailed systematic and biogeographical analysis of 11 Morpho species and their distributions is also included, along with invaluable notes for the identification of the confusing ithomiines.

This volume treats 196 species (355 subspecies) in the nymphalid subfamilies Acraeinae, Libytheinae, Nymphalinae, Ithomiinae, and Morphinae. In excess of 1450 specimens are reproduced on 84 colour plates. There are over 450 figures of type specimens, of which the majority are illustrated for the first time. Descriptions are provided for 8 new species and 91 new subspecies. In addition, 4 neotypes and 10 lectotypes are designated.

One-third of the plates will include the commercially attractive Morpho, and another third the scientifically interesting Ithomiinae. In addition it includes Acraeinae, Libytheinae (one species!) and Nymphalinae. The Danainae subfamily are not included, but are expected to appear in Part 3 of the series.
