Celaenorrhinus group

Our treatment of this group as Celaenorrhinus spp. ( Cock & Congdon 2011b) needs to be revisited in light of the detailed work of Libert (2014) on this genus, which resulted in the recognition of four genera: Celaenorrhinus Hübner , Apallaga Strand , Scopulifera Libert and Bettonula Libert. Life histories have not been documented for any species of Scopulifera and Bettonula as yet. Cock & Congdon (2011b) pointed out that the limited number of pupae known for this group can be divided into those that are brown with cephalic horns, and those that are green with only a trace of a frontal protuberance; the former correspond with Celaenorrhinus spp. and the latter with Apallaga spp. We also noted that the pupa of A. mokeezi (Wallengren) differs from other green pupae in that it is covered with white powder; A. mokeezi comprises a monophyletic clade within the genus Apallaga .
