Although seasonality in the tropics is often less pronounced than in temperate areas, tropical ecosystems show seasonal dynamics as well. Nevertheless, individual tropical insects' phenological patterns are still poorly understood, especially in the Afrotropics. To fill this gap, we investigated biodiversity patterns of Lepidoptera communities at three rainforest localities in the foothills of Mount Cameroon, West Africa, one of the wettest places in the world. Our multitaxa approach covered six lepidopteran groups (fruit-feeding butterflies and moths, the families Sphingidae, Saturniidae, and Eupterotidae, and the subfamily Arctiinae of Erebidae) with diverse life strategies...

The genus Eugoa Walker, 1858 belongs to the tribe Lithosiini and occurs across the Old World, excluding the Western Palearctic Region. Currently, it contains around 120 species, most of them distributed across Asia (Bucsek 2016a, b; Dubatolov Bucsek 2016; Schaus 1922). Ten additional species have been described from Australasia (Bethune-Baker 1904; Rothschild 1915). Since the 19th century, several authors have addressed the taxonomy of the genus Eugoa (Buscek 2008, 2012, 2016a, b; Černý Bucsek 2014; Hampson 1891, 1898, 1900; Rothschild 1915; Seitz 1914; Van Eecke 1930), but only a few described their habitat preferences (e...

Present paper contains a review of the lithosiine genus Afrasura Durante, 2009 from São Tomé Island (Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe). One new species, A. pectinatissima Volynkin László, sp. nov. and one new subspecies, A. discocellularis saotomensis Volynkin László, ssp. nov. are described. Asura thomensis Rothschild, 1913 is synonymized with Afrasura hieroglyphica (Bethune-Baker, 1911) widely distributed in West Africa. A new combination is established: Afrasura friederikae (Kühne, 2007), comb...

Euchaetesnancyae sp. n. is described from southeastern Arizona. Although superficially similar to species of Pygarctia Grote, structural and molecular variation shows it to be most closely related to Euchaeteshelena (Cassino). Adults, genitalic structure, eggs, and first instar larvae are described and illustrated. The larval host plant remains unknown. Euchaeteshelena is confirmed as occurring in Mexico.

Two new species of the genus Agrisius Walker, 1855, A. orhanti Volynkin, Dubatolov Kishida, sp. n. and A. leloii Volynkin, Dubatolov Kishida, sp. n. are described from South Laos and Vietnam respectively. A. orhanti sp. n. belongs to the A. japonicus Leech, 1889 species-group. Whereas, the male genitalia structure of A. leloii sp. n. is intermediate between those of the A. japonicus and the A. guttivitta Walker, 1855 species-groups, therefore, it is assigned to a separated species-group (the A. leloii species-group)...

The taxonomy and nomenclature of three South-East Asian species of Amata all named leopoldi is clarified. Leopoldina leopoldi Hering, 1934 syn. n., is synonymized with Amata sperbius (Fabricius, 1787), Syntomis leopoldi Hering, 1934 is transferred to Amata as Amata leopoldi (Hering, 1934) comb. n. and Syntomis leopoldi Tams, 1935 is renamed as Amata tamsi nom. n., due to its primary homonymy with Syntomis leopoldi Hering, 1934. A synonymic list of the three species is provided, together with a colour plate of the holotypes and other relevant specimens...
