Taxonomy, ecology, genetics and conservation status of the pale imperial hairstreak ( Jalmenus eubulus ) (Lepidoptera:Lycaenidae): a threatened butterfly from the Brigalow Belt, Australia

Eastwood, Rod; Braby, Michael; Schmidt, Daniel J.; Hughes, Jane Margaret


The taxonomic status of Jalmenus eubulus Miskin stat. rev. is revised and considered to be specifically distinct from J. evagoras (Donovan) based on fundamental differences in morphology, ecology and genetics. Miskin's holotype is fixed by monotypy and illustrated, with type locality Rockhampton, Queensland. Fixed differences in the mitochondrial genomes of J. eubulus and J. evagoras in which the mean pairwise divergence is only 0.85% indicate absence of matrilineal gene flow, whereas allozyme...[Show more]
