Integrative taxonomy clarifies species limits in the hitherto monotypic passion‐vine butterfly genera Agraulis and Dryas (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Heliconiinae)

Abstract: The Heliconiini genera Agraulis and Dryas are widely distributed throughout the Neotropics and into adjacent temperate regions, and although they are currently treated as monotypic, both show significant geographic phenotypic variation. In this work, we employ six genetic markers (4199 bp), two mitochondrial and four nuclear, to perform coalescent species delimitation analyses in Bayesian Phylogenetics and Phylogeography (BPP) and in integrated BPP (iBPP), the latter also includes linear measurements and wings… Show more

“…Following Zhang et al (2019), we consider that the phylogenetically most informative hypothesis is to treat Dione and Agraulis as equivalent subgenera. In summary, as previously accepted by Núñez et al (2022), Dione (Agraulis) dodona sp. nov. is evidenced as a valid species based on morphological and molecular evidence.…”

“…nov. as a distinct taxon, placed as external to the group formed by its congeners, considered the earliest diverging (ca. 8 Mya) lineage within the Agraulis clade (Núñez et al 2022). Although sharing morphological traits with the Dione clade, the genetic distance of nearly 10% is quite high, which together with previous inferences using several molecular markers (Kozak et al 2015;Massardo et al 2015), supports the recognition of two evolutionary lineages that shared a common ancestor around 14 million years ago (Núñez et al 2022).…”
