Apantesis virgo?
« Gepost op: juli 11, 2019, 19:37:41 pm »

Is dit een Apantesis virgo?
Hij lijkt mij niet te behoren tot de lastige groep nais/carlotta/phalerata/vittata,
dus misschien is dit exemplaar wel op naam te brengen.

Toelichting:
There is no 100% consistent diagnostic characteristic in wing maculation or spots/no spots on the patagia (the "collar"), to reliably distinguish nais/carlotta/phalerata/vittata. The only full-proof method is dissection and examination of genitalia (the exception is in male phalerata, in which the valve is easily distinguished by its longer, up-curved apex. So one could brush the scales away from the last sternite and see it without dissection. The nais/carlotta/vittata group have rather blunt and rounded apices of the valve.) However, within this group, using the sum of typical (although not necessarily diagnostic) characteristics, can allow for a reasonably probable species ID. -- J.D. Roberts (citaat van link 5750)
