0069. Phylogeny of Dasyophthalma butterflies (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Brassolini)

Carla Maria Penz


This study provides a species-level phylogeny and morphological characterization for the Neotropical brassoline genus Dasyophthalma Westwood, 1851. A revised generic definition is given, and two species groups are proposed. Diagnoses and illustrations of habitus and genitalia are provided for all species. Wing color, male scent organs, and male and female genitalic morphology are characterized and discussed.
