dc.description.abstract "A cladistic analysis of 97 characters taken from adult morphology was used to assess the higher-level phylogeny of the butterfly tribe Lemoniini (sensu Harvey, 1987). Many of our characters are described and illustrated in detail to assist future work in riodinid systematics. To evaluate the monophyly of Lemoniini, representative species of five genera in the putative sister tribe Nymphidiini were included in the analysis. Our results indicated that the Lemoniini was not monophyletic, and that some Nymphidiini grouped within Lemoniini. As this study provided no support for maintaining Lemoniini and Nymphidiini as separate taxa, we propose the amalgamation of these two tribes. Our analysis also suggested that not all genera currently placed in Lemoniini are monophyletic"--P. [1]. en_US
