O gênero neotropical Cresera (Lepidoptera, Arctiinae, Phaegopterini)

by Oliveira Emery, Eduardo de

Abstract (Summary)
The neotropical genus Cresera Schaus, 1894 is revised and its 14 species are redescribed. A key for species, male and female genitalia of adults, as well as wing venation and geographic distribution maps, are provided. Two synonyms are stablished: C. simillima (Rothschild, 1933) Syn. n. = C. optima (Butler, 1877); C. intermedia (Rothschild, 1922) Syn. n. = C. hieroglyphica (Schaus, 1905). Two new species very similar to C. ilus (Cramer, 1776) and C. annulata Schaus, 1894 are described. These species have different antenna, genitalia and a few cromatic characters
