? Eupteryx capreola  Lindberg, 1954

Eupteryx capreola Lindberg, 1954: 240  ; Quartau and Fançony, 1988: 98; Aveiro and Aguin-Pombo, 2003 a,

2003 b

Distribution. Endemic to Canary Islands and Madeira archipelago. MADEIRA: reported from many localities of southern and northern slopes ( Lindberg, 1961; Quartau and Fançony, 1988). PORTO SANTO: one locality ( Quartau and Fançony, 1988).

Food plants. Pteridium aquilinum  and herbaceous plants ( Quartau and Fançony, 1988). Remarks. Quartau and Fançony (1988) suggested that Eupteryx capreola Lindberg, 1954  is probably an extreme form of Eupteryx filicum (Newman, 1853)  . More recent morphological studies and population dynamics analysis of populations on P. aquilinum  also failed to separate this species from E. filicum  ( Aveiro and Aguin-Pombo, 2003 a, 2003 b). The status of this species needs to be confirmed.
