Ciclo de vida de Corades chelonis Hewitson y Corades dymantis Thieme (Nymphalidae: Satyrinae: Pronophilina) y aspectos de su biología

  • This document describes the biological cycle of two species of the genus Corades Doubleday, C. chelonis Hewitson and C. dymantis Thieme. The morphological characteristics of the two species are compared to each other, to other species of Corades and to other members of the subtribe Pronophilina. An outstanding character of the larvae of C. chelonis is the united cephalic horns which differ from the other species of Corades. The hostplant of both species is Chusquea serrulata. Oviposition varies between the two species of the study. Immature stage development takes an average of 147 days for C. chelonis and 150 days for C. dymantis. Both species were raised ex situm in the same life zone. Ethological aspects of the larvae and adults are discussed and compared.
