Arctiidae

(Family)

Overview

[ Back to top ]
'

The Arctiidae are members of the Superfamily Noctuoidea. Worldwide in distribution, moths of this family are richest in the tropics. The small to medium-sized adults are often white, yellow, orange, or red with black markings on the forewings. Some adults are day-fliers, while others are nocturnal. Larvae are typically very hairy; some tiger moth larvae are called "woolly bears." Larvae feed on lichens as well as herbaceous and woody plants, and some species are forest pests. Pupation takes place in cocoons made of matted larval hair and little or no silk.

The gods so named were Zeus, Athena, Artemis, and Hermes.

Amastus

Amastus is a genus of arctiine tussock moths (tribe Phaegopterini of the family Arctiidae). Its delimitation versus Hemihyalea has long been problematic. It was recently pointed out that the type species of Hemihyalea (the old ) is actually closely enough related to that of Amastus (P. collaris) to warrant inclusion in the present genus. That made it necessary to re-establish the genus Pseudohemihyalea for the more distantly related group of species around "H." schausi. There is no consensus yet on whether to include the remaining Hemihyalea in Amastus or not. [more]

Amata

Amata (also called Palanto), in Roman mythology, was the wife of King Latinus of the Latins. She and Latinus had a daughter, Lavinia, and no sons. When the hero Aeneas sued for Lavinia's hand in marriage, Amata opposed him because she had already promised Lavinia to Aeneas' nemesis Turnus. At the same time she was instigated by Alecto, who acted according to the request of Juno. Hiding her daughter in the woods and arousing the womenfolk of the Latins, she managed to stir up the war between the Latins (now allied with Turnus) and Aeneas' Trojans (allied with the Etruscans and King Evander's people). This story fills the greater part of the seventh book of Virgil's Aeneid. When Amata was informed that Turnus had fallen in battle, she hanged herself. [more]

Ecpantheria

Hypercompe is a of moths of the family Arctiidae. There are over 80 species found throughout the Americas. Several species were formerly separated in Ecpantheria which is now regarded as a junior synonym. They are typically large moths with white forewings heavily spotted with black, and brightly-colored abdomens which are exposed when the moth is threatened. This is a form of aposematism; they produce copious amounts of foul-smelling defensive chemicals, which they ooze from special points of weakness on the thorax, to discourage would-be predators without having to be eaten.[citation needed] [more]

Hyperborea

In Greek mythology the Hyperboreans (Greek: , pronounced Hyperborei) were a mythical people who lived far to the north of Thrace. The Greeks thought that Boreas, the North Wind, lived in Thrace, and that therefore Hyperborea was an unspecified region in the northern lands that lay beyond the north wind. Their land, called Hyperborea or Hyperboria ? "beyond the Boreas" ? was perfect, with the sun shining twenty-four hours a day, which - if true - suggests a possible location within the Arctic Circle.

Hypercompe

Hypercompe is a of moths of the family Arctiidae. There are over 80 species found throughout the Americas. Several species were formerly separated in Ecpantheria which is now regarded as a junior synonym. They are typically large moths with white forewings heavily spotted with black, and brightly-colored abdomens which are exposed when the moth is threatened. This is a form of aposematism; they produce copious amounts of foul-smelling defensive chemicals, which they ooze from special points of weakness on the thorax, to discourage would-be predators without having to be eaten.[citation needed] [more]

Malesia is a region straddling the boundary of the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones. Malesia was first identified as a floristic province that included the Malay Peninsula, Indonesia, the Philippines and New Guinea, based on a shared tropical flora derived mostly from Asia but also with numerous elements of the Antarctic flora, including many species in the southern conifer families Podocarpaceae and Araucariaceae. The floristic province overlaps four distinct mammalian faunal regions. [more]
