Title :

New synonymies and taxonomic notes on the genus Chrysoritis Butler (Lepdioptera: Lycaenidae)


Abstract :

A phylogeny implied from morphological and molecular evidence is followed in the rearrangement of the species and species groups of Chrysoritis Butler. Fifteen taxa are synonymized and four are reduced in rank to subspecies based on their morphology and life history.  Chrysoritis lycia (Riley) is synonymized with C. chrysaor (Trimen); C. kaplani (Henning), C. stepheni (Dickson) and C. beaufortius charlesi (Dickson); are synonymized with C. beaufortius (Dickson); C. atlanticus (Dickson), C. henningi (Bampton), C. lysander (Pennington) [with its two subspecies lysander and hantamsbergae] and C. williami Heath are synonymized with C. pan (Pennington); C. coetzeri (Dickson) is synonymized with C. zonarius (Riley); C. cottrelli (Dickson) is synonymized with C. zeuxo (Linnaeus); C. wykehami (Dickson) is synonymized with C. turneri (Riley); C. hyperion (Dickson) is synonymized with C. swanepoeli (Dickson); C. balli (Dickson & Henning) is synonymized with C. pyramus (Pennington); C. whitei (Dickson), C. mithras (Pringle), C. bamptoni (Dickson),  C. lyndseyae (Henning) and C. psyche (Pennington) are reduced in rank to subspecies of C. thysbe (Linnaeus).  The validity of seven more taxa is questioned but left for further research.  Inter-specific variability is discussed in relation to microclimate.
