Abstract

CASAGRANDE, Mirna M. et al. Hesperioidea e Papilionoidea (Lepidoptera) coligidos em expedição aos Rios Nhamundá e Abacaxis, Amazonas, Brasil: novos subsídios para o conhecimento da biodiversidade da Amazônia Brasileira. Rev. Bras. entomol. [online]. 2012, vol.56, n.1, pp. 23-28.  Epub Mar 29, 2012. ISSN 0085-5626.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0085-56262012005000012.

Hesperioidea and Papilionoidea (Lepidoptera) collected in an expedition to the Nhamundá and Abacaxis rivers, Amazonas, Brazil: new insights for understanding the biodiversity of the Brazilian Amazon. Aiming at improving the knowledge of the diurnal lepidopterofauna of the Amazon rainforest, this study lists 180 taxa collected at five different points along two tributaries of the Amazon River, including the Guyana and Rondonia areas of endemism. The different localities were compared using Non-Metric Multidimensional Scaling analysis (NMDS).

Keywords : Brazilian Amazon; butterflies; distribution; endemism areas.
