Brief Summary

    Mimoniades: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

    Mimoniades is a Neotropical genus of skipper butterflies in the family Hesperiidae.

    Large strong insects, the marking of which, on a black ground, corresponds to that of Jemadia, but the colour of the bands is a lighter or darker yellowish red, often with a brownish tint. The distal margin of the hindwing is only feebly undulate, but near the anal angle somewhat more distinctly dentate. On the forewing the lowest subcostal vein and the uppermost radial vein rise from the same place; the cell is shorter than half the costal margin, the transverse vein runs rectilinearly, the upper median and lower radial rise from the lower cell-angle.
