OLIVARES, Tania S; TORRES, Sergio A  and  ZUNIGA, Liliana A. Morfología de huevos de siete especies de nóctuidos de Chile (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae)y clave actualizada para su identificación. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2005, vol.53, n.1-2, pp.153-163. ISSN 0034-7744.

Egg morphology of seven noctuid species (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae) from Chilean and updated key to their identification. Eggs from seven Noctuid moth species, Eriopyga perfusca (Hampson), Magnagrotis oorti (Koehler), Pseudoleucania brosii (Koehler), Scania simillima (Koehler), Scriptania americana (Blanchard), Scriptania leucofasciata Rodríguez, were collected at La Mina, 925 msnm, (35º 21’ S; 71º 41’ W) and Paso Internacional Pehuenche (35º 57’ S; 70º 23’ W), 2560 msnm, Chile. The Scanning Electron Microscope showed that egg morphology allows identification to species level. This is particularly useful in agricultural pest control, and morphological differences are used in this report to present an updated taxonomic key to the Chilean Noctuidae. Rev. Biol. Trop. 53(1-2):153-163. Epub 2005 Jun 24

Keywords : Egg morphology; Lepidoptera; Noctuidae; Chile.
