The Skipper Butterflies (Hesperiidae) of Trinidad. Part 4: Pyrginae (second section)

Matthew J.W. Cock


In earlier parts of this series I have dealt with seven of the eight species of Pyrrhopyginae (Cock 1981c, but see also Cock 1984a) and the 12 species of Pyrginae belonging to Evans's (1952) genera group B (Cock 1984b). Here I cover the first 35 species of Evans's genera group C, leaving the remaining 16 or so species (Astraptes, Calliades, Autochton, Cabares) for a future contribution. The species covered here conveniently include all the tailed skippers from Trinidad, and a key is provided for these at the end of this part.
