BECCACECE, Hernán M.; ZAPATA, Adriana I.; VILLAFANE, Noelia A.  and  DREWNIAK, M. Eugenia. Arctiid moths (Lepidoptera: Erebidae: Arctiinae) of the Serrano Forest, Córdoba, Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2012, vol.71, n.1-2, pp.99-103. ISSN 0373-5680.

The arctiid moths are macrolepidopteran of different sizes and nocturnal habits mostly. The richness of this group is poorly known in Argentina, particularly in Cordoba. The Serrano Forest is one of the highest biodiversity areas in Cordoba province. The aim of this study was to update the richness of arctiid moths in the Serrano Forest. Thirty-eight samplings were performed in different areas of Sierras Chicas using light traps, from December 2006 to April 2011, with an unequal frequency between the different sampling sites. A total of 26 species, belonging to the tribes Arctiini and Lithosiini, were found. The genus Agylla Walker is a new citation for Argentina and 21 species are new records for this environment. This study increased to 28 the arctiid species attracted by light traps that live in the Serrano Forest.
