TESTON, JOSÉ A.; CAMPELO, JANAÍNA DA C.; LOPES, ALESSANDRA M.C.  and  SPECHT, ALEXANDRE. First record of Utetheisa pulchella (Linnaeus, 1758) (Lepidoptera: Erebidae: Arctiinae) in Brazilian Amazon: implications for conservation. An. Acad. Bras. Ciênc. [online]. 2019, vol.91, n.1, e20180262.  Epub Mar 21, 2019. ISSN 0001-3765.

The crimson speckled moth, Utetheisa pulchella (Linnaeus, 1758), is recorded in Brazilian Amazon for the first time. A moth (male) was collected with light trap in a multiple cropping area, in Mojuí dos Campos municipality, Pará State, Brazil. This record expands the area of occurrence and distribution of this rare species in the Neotropical Region. In addition, the occurrence of U. pulchella in the Amazon was unexpected, since this species is generally associated with open ecosystems and drier climates.
