Discussion of Phylogenetic Relationships

View Coliadinae Tree

The current hypothesis of relationships for pierid genera is based upon the molecular phylogenetic hypothesis of Braby et al. 2006. Taxa not included in that hypothesis are indicated as incertae sedis as discussed by the authors. Nomenclature and species lists for neoptropical taxa were drawn from Lamas (2004) and for Afrotropical taxa from Ackery et al. (1995).

Coliadinae

Coliadinae, the sulfurs, sulphurs, or yellows, are a subfamily of butterflies with about 300 described species.

There are 36 species in North America, where they range from Mexico to northern Canada. Males of most species are different from females, including, (for example, in the genera Colias and Gonepteryx) brilliant UV reflections which the females lack.[1]

Systematics [edit]

The Coliadinae can be arranged in the 3 traditional tribes and a basal lineage, with one genus of unclear placement. The taxa—including some selected species—are arranged here in the presumed phylogenetic sequence, from the most ancient lineages to the most modern ones:[2]

Basal lineage

Euremini

Goniopterygini

Coliadini

Incertae sedis
