I agree tolerated. do not forget.
The data is taken from Wikipedia Perez-Gelabert, Daniel E (2008). "Arthropods of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti): A checklist and bibliography". Zootaxa 1831: 1-530. It is, as you say, an authoritative publication.

Drive, Alexander: "The distribution includes southern Brazil, Bolivia (Sara Department), Peru, Costa Rica, northern Venezuela, Guadeloupe, Saint Kitts, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba (Munroe 1959 ; Alayo and Valdes Arteaga 1974; Gomez 1999; FSCA and MGCL specimens). ". I'm more focused on it. American site, according to their types, I think can be trusted more than, I'm sorry, Wikipedia (which, by the way, too, the US initially, but "consumer goods" and not know who to introduce information).I agree to transfer to the uncertain and forget.

Basil, in the article to which you are constantly doing link, in English says the difference between this kind from the other two, in Haiti there are two, one is the same. I do not know an angel, I scored in Google and read.Short summary: Wings do not differ, differ somewhat in size, color labial palps and legs (legs not), but reliably genitals.
On top of this species for the Dominican Republic. not given in the check list on the island, but it is not the main thing.

25.10.2014 14:09, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Well, something like that, on the number and location of points on the wings
Especially now comparable. Picture from nature and only you can determine. I confess, I have put in the exact genital beast, but now it is inaccurate.
Left photo by Alexander Dumchusa fragment and a fragment of the right photo from the University of Florida: In it I outlined the small plus sign matches, which drew the attention of: three matches, I think enough

I looked the other species, and such was not the case. Maybe overlooked something, I do not know ....

So. If there are signs by which one can determine, Basil, describe them in the comments. If anyone knows foty defined without sufficient justification (the signs are not visible, and so forth) - unsubscribe in the comments to this fotam, will rule.

Tomorrow throw. Including its mistakes to hurt anybody was not.

23.10.2014 12:38, Yuri Semejkin

Basil, genital types of appearance are not determined.

23.10.2014 12:27, Peter Khramov

If there genital types are defined by their appearance - it is wrong and needs correction. Throw links will rule. Inaccurate - this is when you have a reason to lean it to this kind among others. Make a list of these grounds pliz.

23.10.2014 2:58, Vasiliy Feoktistov

I put in inaccurate. In the very first, my comments, reference is made, on which the butterfly was determined by habit. That is enough: here all photos of nature as defined and including such well-genital types.

23.10.2014 2:55, Vasiliy Feoktistov Corrected data.

Confidently identified Tentatively identified.

22.10.2014 22:47, Peter Khramov

Now there is the possibility of binding to other taxa levels. But the future Fautua reserve, yes. Only the type of Untie, Basil, if I agree. And if you do not agree - say where disagrees.

22.10.2014 22:31, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Write Palpita sp, even photos which characterizes the genus have

22.10.2014 22:28, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Here, Aleksanlr Dumchus! You must first catch, and then take pictures, and then give the material definition. And then came the winter (I -9 outside!), Entomologists are now all swear to each other begin to boredom.

22.10.2014 22:22, Peter Khramov

Znachitsa so.
If this species is distinguished from its neighbors only on the genitals and on the basis that in this photo are not visible, then you need to send back to undefined.

22.10.2014 20:07, Vasiliy Feoktistov

Well, boil a photo from nature :) Here, by the way is full of these, set out in precise, including you :) No offense. I do not see more sense to continue these mutual slinging is unknown what and who inspired.

22.10.2014 16:38, Alexandr Zhakov

Basil, you'll again say that finding fault, why it should be persimilis? The island has four species of this genus, and 3 are the same, all the genital, the remaining differences are very small and in the photo are not visible.

22.10.2014 11:18, Vasiliy Feoktistov

At the same time he added a new source: University of Florida, authoritative organization :)

22.10.2014 11:01, Vasiliy Feoktistov Corrected data.
