Brief Summary

Read full entry



With the exception of the Taiwanese Palaeonympha, Euptychiina are an exclusively New World, mainly neotropical satyrine clade. A few species and genera extend into the U. S., including Megisto, Hermeuptychia and Cyllopsis, but the vast preponderance of species occur in tropical Central and South America. Most species are monocot feeders, but a few, such as members of Euptychia, feed on unusual hosts such as the spikemoss Selaginella.
