Abstract


Los estados inmaduros y comportamiento de Actinote callianthe amoena Jordan, 1913, son descritos aquí por primera vez. Las larvas fueron cultivadas en laboratorio a partir de huevos colectados en campo en la planta hospedera Oligactes volubilis (Kunth) Cass (Asteraceae). Los huevos y las larvas son gregarias, excepto en el último y penúltimo instar. La morfología y el comportamiento de las larvas es similar a las especies descritas previamente, Actinote ozomene (Godart, 1819), Actinote trinacria cf. unicolor Talbot, 1932, de los Andes norteños y varias especies de Actinote Hübner, 1819 del sudeste del Brasil. No se hallaron caracteres morfológicos o de comportamiento que permitan reconocer dos géneros de Acraeini Neotropicales, Altinote Potts, 1943, y Actinote.

The immature stages and behavior of Actinote callianthe amoena Jordan, 1913, are described here for the first time. Larvae were reared from egg clutches collected from the host plant Oligactes volubilis (Kunth) Cass (Asteraceae). Eggs and larvae were gregarious except in the last and penultimate instar. Larvae showed similar morphology and behavior to those previously described for Actinote ozomene (Godart, 1819), Actinote trinacria cf. unicolor Talbot, 1932, from the Colombian Andes and to species of Actinote Hübner, 1819, from southeastern Brazil and the Andes. No morphological or behavioral characters in the immature stages were found to support the taxonomic distinction of Altinote Potts, 1943, and Actinote.
