Color patterns of immature stages in vivo were photographed with a digital camera.

In addition, the use of mistletoes as host plant in the Riodinidae is reviewed and the morphological and behavioral traits here described are compared with those known for other putatively related genera in Riodinini.Kendall/ Hunt Publishing Company, Dubuque, Iowa, xiv754.Similarly, it is expected that this variety of forms is also reflected in the morphology and ecology of the immatures stages.The collected larvae were reared in the laboratory in a plastic pot under ambient conditions with food available ad libitum (following Kaminski, 2008).Morphology, measurements were taken and general aspects of morphology were observed using a LeicaR MZ7.5 stereomicroscope equipped with a micrometric scale.Azora in Riodinini is reinforced by the position of spiracles, presence of echinoid setae, and absence of tentacle nectary organs, which are all typical features of this tribe (Harvey, 1987; Kaminski, 2008).
