Zoom mtg: Leps of NW Louisiana

February ABF Zoom: Lepidoptera of NW Louisiana - Monday, Feb. 26th @ 7:00pm Central Time

to TX-BUTTERFLY

Greetings,

The Austin Butterfly Forum speaker this month will be Entomologist Royal Tyler, who will speak to us on Lepidoptera of Northwest Louisiana.

February Zoom Meeting

Monday, 26th, at 7 pm central time (Dallas/Chicago)

Lepidoptera of NW Louisiana and How I Document Them, presented by Entomologist Royal Tyler, of NW Louisiana

Royal Tyler will initially cover how he got started documenting nature, and Leps in particular. What his light setups are, what type of cameras he has used, daytime versus nighttime photography, and then go through some of his research papers and findings (primarily on micromoths). Royal will then focus on the butterflies of Louisiana and how he plans to find more species in 2024 and photograph them, and how he plans to find the rare ones.

Royal is a life-long well rounded naturalist who primarily worked in natural resource management in his early years before starting his own business 6 years ago to sell lawn care and pest control products. This has freed Royal up to pursue his passion for nature a little deeper, especially for conducting research and writing papers. He has primarily published on lepidoptera and bee fauna of NW Louisiana. Royal enjoys photographing and studying the microfauna that we know less about, and which present a challenge to get "just right shot" for identification.

Royal has published the only detailed study of native bees in NW Louisiana where he found several unidentified species that may be new to science, and he has expanded the known range of several species of bees. Royal has documented and published host plant information and life cycle data on several lesser known species of micromoths. Many of his papers can be seen here: https://independent.academia.edu/RoyalTyler/Papers

Thank you Adam.

And some conclusions can be useful to understand the diversity of several butterflies families.

Papilio nephelus ssp. from Java

by Leonard187 » Mon Feb 26, 2024 5:32 am

I got a specimen of Papilio nephelus from a dealer and he told me it was from Java. I' ve never seen the subspecies from Java (might be nominate?), but this one seems similar as ssp. sunatus from Malay Peninsula. So I think it might be mis-marking. I tried to sign the subspecies of P. nephelus and P. chaon on the map according to some data but I donot know whether it is correct, and may I get some advice and corrections?Thanks.

Congratulations on what appears to be an excellent 'magnum opus'.

This is a seriously important paper for all Delias enthusiasts.

Adam.

According to the Kaufman field guide, P anchisiades is "found mainly in extreme southern Texas, where it is apparently scarce or irregular, flying at various times from spring to late fall." Eggs & larvae have been found on the US side of the border, so it may be a part-time (not every year) resident.

To and fro in the archipelago: Repeated inter-island dispersal and New Guinea’s orogeny affect diversification of Delias

by wollastoni » Sun Feb 25, 2024 10:46 am

The City College of New York, led by David Lohman, has just published a major research project on the Delias genus, in which I participated.

I recommend that you all read it, as it's a very thorough study with many conclusions, not only in taxonomic terms, but also in terms of evolution, biogeography, ocean level ...

The pdf is available free of charge for 50 days only, before being put behind a paywall. Don't forget to download it.

It will be of interest to anyone who loves Delias, New Guinea... but also to those seeking to understand the scientific conclusions that a DNA study can provide.

Here are a few nice ones, top to bottom:
Papilio astyalus
Eurytides philolaus
Papilio pilumnus...
Many thanks. While on the subject of stray Papilionidae: is it known whether Papilio anchisiades actually has an established population in South TX, or is it more likely that any adults seen on the US side of its range are all strays from Mexico? -

This was separated as Papilio pallas by Lewis et al. (2014, Role of Caribbean Islands in diversification & biogeography of Neotropical Heraclides swallowtails. DOI: 10.1111/cla.12092). P. astyalus occurs in South not Central America.
