Larsen , David C. Lees , Oskar Brattstro¨m , Thierry Bouyer , Guy Van de Poel and AbstractWe investigated the genetic diversity and phylogenetic placement of the butterflies in the genus Colotis and eight related pierid genera usingsequence information from two mitochondrial and two nuclear genes. To establish the status of species, we initially barcoded 632 specimensrepresentative of all genera and most species and subspecies in those genera. A subset was then selected for phylogenetic analysis where additionalgene regions were sequenced: 16S rRNA (523 bp), EF-1a (1126 bp) and wg (404 bp). DNA barcode results were largely congruent with thetraditional classification of species in the Colotis group, but deep splits or lack of genetic divergence in some cases supported either species-leveldifferentiation or synonymy. Despite using information from four genes, the deeper nodes in our phylogeny were not strongly supported, andmonophyly of the ÔColotis groupÕ and the genera Colotis and Eronia could not be established. To preserve the monophyly of Colotis, we revive thegenus Teracolus for three outlying species previously in Colotis (i.e. Colotis eris, Colotis subfasciatus and Colotis agoye), as well as the genusAfrodryas for Eronia leda. The position of Calopieris is unresolved although it appears to be well outside the molecular variation in Colotis (s.l.).
A dispersal ⁄ vicariance analysis suggested that major diversification in Colotis (s.str.) occurred in Africa with subsequent dispersal to India andMadagascar.
Key words: Pieridae – Colotis – phylogenetic – DNA barcoding – taxonomy in the Pierinae but identified three genera under the subfamily The Pieridae include some of the most familiar butterflies, the ÔTeracolinaeÕ (i.e. Teracolus, Calopieris and Eronia). He also cabbage whites and the grass yellows, yet the apparently long identified three groups within the genus Teracolus (=Colotis), stable status of many of the species in this family are yet to be one of which he further divided into 12 subgroups based on clarified by molecular means. Several recent papers have used wing colour patterns. Klots (1933) regarded Colotis and Ixias information from gene sequences to shed light on the to be derived from Anthocharidini, considered Eronia, taxonomy or evolutionary history of the family or lower Nepheronia and Pareronia closer to Coliadinae, and expressed ranks therein (Morinaka et al. 2002; Braby 2005; Braby and uncertainties about the placement of Hebomoia and Pinacop- Trueman 2006; Braby et al. 2006, 2007; Chew and Watt 2006; teryx.

However, many Gideona as a separate genus and identified 16 species-groups groups remain largely unexamined. One such group consists of within Colotis, one of which was Colotis (=Calopieris) the genus Colotis and eight closely related genera (i.e. Gideona, eulimene. Peters (1952) also recognized Eronia and Nepheronia Eronia, Nepheronia, Pareronia, Ixias, Pinacopteryx, Hebomoia as separate genera within Teracolinae. Braby et al.

However, on the basis of the available data we N. pharis (Boisduval, 1836) reinstate all non-Indian amata to C. calais (stat. rev.) and N. thalassina (Boisduval, 1836) recognize the subspecies C. calais williami (Namibia and (6) Genus Pareronia Bingham, 1907 Angola) and C. calais crowleyi (Madagascar).
P. argolis (C. Felder and R. Felder, 1860)* (7) Colotis danae from India (ssp. danae) and Iran (ssp. dulcis) P. avatar (Moore, 1858)* are divergent from African populations (3.7 ± 0.9% and P. aviena Fruhstorfer, 1910* 3.9 ± 0.3% respectively) and from one another (3.4 ± 0.2%), P. boebera (Eschscholtz, 1821)* while only minor variation exists within the African C. danae P. ceylanica (C. Felder and R. Felder, 1865)* (0.5 ± 0.2%). We recognize the subspecies C. danae danae, P. chinki Joicey and Noakes, 1915* C. danae dulcis and C. danae eupompe (=pseudocaste syn.
P. anais Lesson, 1837 (=P. hippia (Fabricius, 1787)) nov.). The larger taxon annae Wallengren, 1857 flies in dry P. iobaea (Boisduval, 1832)* parts of South Africa, from Natal to Namibia and north to P. nishiyamai Yata, 1981* Zambia and Botswana. Colotis hildebrandti Staudinger (1884) P. paravatar Bingham, 1907* is similarly large and ranges from southern Kenya to central P. phocaea (C. Felder and R. Felder, 1861)* Zambia. Their barcodes were similar (0.38 ± 0.05%). We P. tritaea (C. Felder and R. Felder, 1859)* reinstate C. annae (stat. rev.) as a good species, with ssp.
P. valeria (Cramer, 1776) hildebrandti as its northern subspecies (stat. nov.).
(7) Genus Eronia Hu¨bner, (1823) (8) We treat C. phisadia and C. vestalis as a single species, with E. cleodora Hu¨bner, (1823) an Arabian ⁄ African subspecies (i.e. C. phisadia phisadia) and E. dilatata Butler, 1888 (stat. rev.) an Asian subspecies (i.e. C. phisadia vestalis stat. nov.). We also (8) Genus Afrodryas Stoneham (1957) (stat. rev.) reinstate C. castalis (stat. rev.) as a separate species, described A. leda (Boisduval 1847) (comb. rev.) from Tanzania and found in dry habitats through Kenya to (9) Genus Pinacopteryx Wallengren (1857) P. eriphia (Godart, 1819) J Zool Syst Evol Res (2011) 49(3), 204–215 2011 Blackwell Verlag GmbH Phylogenetic systematics of Colotis P. mabillei (Aurivillius, 1899) (stat. nov.)
