Colotis doubledayi ?

by LeifKarlsson » Tue Sep 26, 2023 6:37 pm

I suspect this can be a pair of Colotis doubledayi. A rare species confined to the dry areas in southwest africa, from northern Angola to Namibia and most northern part of South Africa.

Thanks both,

That's definitely it;: Those zig-zag markings are surely singular.

We have lots of conifers of different types.

Those guides say that they seek indoor shelter to overwinter, and my 2nd photo (on blue) shows it crawling around the outside of our summerhouse (glorified shed). Temperatures are just beginning to drop a little here (from low to mid 20s down below 20C).

Regards,

Eddie

Yes, it is a Hemipteran bug. Hopefully someone here familiar with UK species can give you a better identification.

Vazrick Nazari is now affiliated to an Italian institution. I don't know if he also retains his position in Ottawa or not.

Re: Bozano series Papilionidae IV published

Jan,

Thank you for your vote of approval. Yes, the subspecies classification of Papilio machaon does seem much better. Some authors wanted to include almost all European populations in ssp. machaon, but I persuaded them to keep three main subspecies (plus britannicus and sphyrus). We managed to work out the problems across southern Europe, through Turkey to Iran by including the Iranian populations in ssp. centralis and everything to the west in ssp. aestivus (syriacus is a junior synonym of that name).

Unfortunately ssp. sylvina from Taiwan has not been seen since the earthquake of 1999 when there were serious landslides in the montane habitat where the foodplant grew (thanks to Prof. Hsu for this information). As a result we were not able to examine fresh specimens. Vazrick Nazari originally wanted to include sylvina in P. hippocrates, but since we were unable to provide any evidence we decided to retain it in P. machaon.

P. archias does look similar to P. verityi, and we were originally going to include it as a subspecies of the latter, however Nazar Shapoval found that the DNA of archias is very different to both P. machaon and P. verityi so we separated it at species level. Note there is usually a thin black edge below the red anal eye spot in archias, whereas verityi normally has no black below the eye spot. Also there are differences in tail length (the tails of verityi are much longer) and in the black shading near the anal margin of the hindwing.

Great book - just arrived. Good addition to series. I like simplified subspecies tree with machaon - especially many southeuropean ssp were ridiculous, also alexanor merging is probably justifiable. To be true I am little surprised that ssp.sylvina from Taiwan remains only subspecies, it is rather different and many taiwaneese butterflies have species status. Also differences between verityi and archias are rather subtle, maybe inside machaon range we will find bigger ones. But have no clue about DNA work, probably DNA will support authors decision.

Eddie,

I think you lost the photo attachment. If you are having problems see
viewtopic.php?t=4
for ways to upload photos. They must be less than 800kb in size.

Eddie,

Welcome to Insectnet, and thanks for adding the Latin names. Please note that genus names should start with a capital letter, but species names start with a small one, so Macroglossum stellatarum and Celastrina argiolus (note spelling argiolus).
