Phegea 27 – 1999

Phegea 27 – nummer 1 (1 maart 1999)

Olivier A., Puplesiene J., van der Poorten D., De Prins W. & Wiemers M.: Revision of some taxa of the Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) transcaspicus group with description of a new species form Central Anatolia (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 27(1): 1–24.
Current problems with the delimitation of supraspecific groups within the subgenus Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) are dealt with: the main reason therefore lies in the great variability of the species-group taxa themselves and the sometimes minute differences among these, together with the seemingly complete lack of useful morphological characters allowing any cladistic analysis. In the present study, the authors treat some taxa of the Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) transcaspica (Heyne, [1895]) species group, i.e. P. (A.) guezelmavi sp. n., P. (A.) theresiae Schurian, van Oorschot & van den Brink, 1992 sp. rev., P. (A.) larseni (Carbonell, 1994) stat. rev., P. (A.) elbursicus (Forster, 1956) and P. (A.) damonides (Staudinger, 1899).
A karyological study of material of the collective species P. (A.) theresiae revealed that topotypical material (Turkey, Adana province, vic. Saimbeyli) has n > 59, while material from Konya province, vic. Taskent, has n = 41–42 and a different karyotype. On these grounds, as well as on small, though inconstant, morphological differences between both populations, the latter one is described as a new species. For the Lebanese taxon P. (A.) larseni, n = 25 was confirmed in two specimens examined: its karyotype is described and figured for the first time. After study of the lectotype ♂ of P. (A.) damonides and a further 3♂, 2♀ paralectotypes, deposited in the Museum für Naturkunde der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, as well as a single ♂ in coll. Vlaamse Lepidoptera Collectie Antwerpen, and comparison with series of P. (A.) ninae (Forster, 1956) and of P. (A.) elbursicus, conspecificity with the former taxon can be discounted. On the other hand, P. (A.) damonides and P. (A.) elbursicus look strikingly similar but, as the chromosome number and karyotype of P. (A.) damonides remain unknown, any speculation on the conspecificity of these two taxa are premature.
Kandul & Lukhtanov (1997) and Lukhtanov et al. (1998) have suggested that P. (A.) dama (Staudinger, 1892) and P. (A.) theresiae could possibly be subspecies because of their apparently similar chromosome number and their allopatric distribution. This hypothesis of conspecificity is invalidated here, as both taxa are in fact sympatric, differ markedly in external morphology and have a different chromosome number. It appears that, within the subgenus Agrodiaetus, speciation is often accompanied by rather radical changes in chromosome number and karyotype. Chromosome numbers and karyotypes offer quite reliable taxonomic characters for the identification of distinct species. On the contrary, there is no current evidence for any usefulness of these features for phylogenetic reconstructions.

Phegea 27 – nummer 3 (1 september 1999)

Coutsis J. G., Puplesiene J. & De Prins W.: The chromosome number and karyotype of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) ripartii and Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) aroaniensis from Greece (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 27(3): 81–84.
The number of chromosomes in Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) ripartii pelopi (Brown, 1976) is n = 90 and the karyotype is identical to the one of Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) ripartii (Freyer, 1830). The synonymy of both names (cf. Hesselbarth, van Oorschot & Wagener 1995) is herewith confirmed. The number of chromosomes in Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) aroaniensis (Brown, 1976) is n = 48, clearly different from the one in Polyommatus (Agrodiaetus) alcestis (Zerny, 1932) (n = 19–22), which proves that both taxa are specifically disctinct.

Coutsis J. G.: Butterflies and Skippers from the Greek island of Kíthira, late April and early June, 1999 (Lepidoptera: Hesperioidea & Papilionoidea).
Phegea 27(4): 123–126.
During two visits of two days each, the author observed 27 species of butterflies on the Greek island of Kíthira.

Olivier A.: On the publication dates of the "Versuch einer Monographie der europäischen Schmetterlingsarten Thecla, Polyomattus [sic], Lycaena, Nemeobius. Als Beitrag zur Schmetterlingskunde" by Paul Bernhard Gerhard (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae).
Phegea 27(4): 127–140.
In the middle of the 19th Century, a series of Lycaenid butterfly species-group taxa was described almost simultaneously by Christian Friedrich Freyer in his "Neuere Beiträge zur Schmetterlingskunde mit Abbildungen nach der Natur" ([1831]–1858), by Gottlieb August Wilhelm Herrich-Schäffer in his "Systematische Bearbeitung der Schmetterlinge von Europa, zugleich als Text, Revision und Supplement zu Jakob Hübner's Sammlung euorpäischer Schmetterlinge" (1843–1856) and by Paul Bernhard Gerhard in his "Versuch einer Monographie der europäischern Schmetterlingsarten: Thecla, Polyomattus [sic], Lycaena, Nemeobius. Als Beitrag zur Schmetterlingskunde" (1850–1853). In the present publication, the first of a planned series of four, the establishment of the exact dates of publication of the various instalments ("Hefte") of Gerhard's work will be attempted. After a short biographical sketch of Paul Bernhard Gerhard, whereby an emphasis is placed on his relations to other collectors and dealers, the dating of the ten Hefte, as accurately as possible, is performed with the aid of external sources, as well as a brief evaluation of the immediate impact of his work on the contemporaneous lepidopterological world. Finally, a chronological list of nominal taxa described, figured or mentioned in his work, is presented.
