Dichromatism and new synonymies of Carectocultus perstrialis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae: Schoenobiinae).

M. A. Solis, V. O. Becker

Abstract


Two very distinct forms of Carectocultus that have been described as separate Neotropical species, C. perstrialis Hübner and C. repugnatalis (Walker), are shown to be one species. A new synonymy is listed, and the genetic ratio and adaptive significance of the two forms are discussed.
