Search this article


The Oriental and Australian genera of the tribe Polyommatini (Lepidoptera, Lycaenidae, Polyommatinae) are revised and generic diagnoses based on the male and female genitalia are given. A total of some 200 species were examined and were assigned to 31 genera, including four new ones, i.e., Tartesa, Perpheres, Nothodanis and Sahulana. Fifteen sections (genus groups) are recognized in the tribe and two of them, the Prosotas and Thaumaina sections, are newly proposed.
