A Tale of Two Caterpillars and Reclassification of Cerathosia Smith and Cydosia Duncan [& Westwood] (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The life histories of Cerathosia tricolor Smith and Cydosia aurivitta Grote & Robinson are briefly described and their larvae figured. Data from seven gene regions (>5,500 base pairs) as well as larval morphology suggest both moths are misclassified in Eustrotiinae and Cydosiinae, respectively: Cerathosia Smith is transferred to Stiriinae, Cydosia Duncan [& Westwood] is transferred to Metoponiinae, and Cydosiinae is reduced to a tribe within Metoponiinae.
