Abstract

Agrotina, Agrotis, cutworm, cerrado, Feltia submontana (Köhler, 1961) is redescribed based on specimens from Atlantic Forest, annual crops Northwestern Argentina and Central and Southeastern Brazil. Taxonomic comments, photographs of the adults, characters of taxonomic impor- Correspondence FMS Dias, Lab de Estudos de Lepidoptera tance, and illustrations of structures of the labial palpus, legs, and male Neotropical, Depto de Zoologia, Univ and female genitalia are provided. The species is compared with similar- Federal do Paraná, Curitiba, 81.531-980, looking and supposedly closely related species, such as F. hispidula Brasil; fernandomsdias@yahoo.com.br (Guenée, 1852) and F. lilacina (Zerny, 1916). The species, originally de- Edited by Raphael C Castilho – FCAV/UNESP scribed for Argentina, is reported for Brazil for the first time. Most Received 7 December 2017 and accepted 20 Brazilian specimens come from the “Cerrado” but also from May 2018 Southeastern Atlantic Forests. The life cycle of F. submontana specimens collected in Planaltina, Distrito Federal, Brazil, is described; the species * Sociedade Entomológica do Brasil 2018 probably has only a single generation per year and imagines are on the wing in the late autumn and early winter months; the last instar prepupa and pupa pass through aestival diapause.
