Abstract

AGUDELO M, Juan Carlos  and  PEREZ-BUITRAGO, Néstor. NOTES ON THE DISTRIBUTION OF PAPILIONIDAE (LEPIDOPTERA: PAPILIONOIDEA) IN THE NORTHERN COLOMBIAN ORINOCO. Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2015, vol.19, n.1, pp.203-214. ISSN 0123-3068.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17151/bccm.2015.19.1.14.

Fifty six specimens of Papilionidae butterflies were non-systematically collected and are documented from the northern part of the Colombian Orinoquia. Specifically, specimens were collected in Arauca, Casanare, and Norte de Santander departments in an altitudinal gradient between 120 and 494 m.a.s.l. The specimens belong to three genera, seven species and seven subspecies being the most abundant Battus polydamas polydamas and Parides eurimedes arriphuswith fifteen and twelve individuals respectively. The seven species identified correspond to 11.5 % of the 61species reported to Colombia and 29.2% of the 24 species of this family registered for the whole Colombian Orinoco region. At regional scale, the species richness of Papilionidae in Arauca equals t reported in a locality of Meta department (seven sp.) and lesser than the department of Casanare (nine sp.). For four subspecies, the collection localities imply the enlargement of their previously reported geographical distribution, at regional spatial scale.
