SANCHEZ-JASSO, Jessica Mariana; ESTRADA-ALVAREZ, Julio C.; MEDINA, Juan Pablo  e  ESTRADA-FERNANDEZ, Balam Y.. Diversity of diurnal butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea and Hesperioidea) in the urban landscape of Metepec Municipality, State of México, Mexico. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2019, vol.90, e902659.  Epub 09-Set-2019. ISSN 2007-8706.  https://doi.org/10.22201/ib.20078706e.2019.90.2659.

We report the alpha diversity of the butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea and Hesperioidea sensu Llorente-Bousquets et al., 2006 and Warren, 2009) of the Metepec Municipality, State of México, Mexico, whose human development index has caused, in a short time, the transformation from a natural landscape to an urban landscape. The field work included 23 samplings, carried out from May 2015 to September 2016. Eighteen sampling sites were divided into 3 main zones: urban (U), urban parks (PU) and marshes (L). A total of 41 species were identified, which are the first records for the municipality of Metepec. Of these, 4 species are endemic to Mexico and 1 is classified as a special protected species by NOM-059-Semarnat-2010. Also, 2 new state records are reported. The richness of Lepidoptera of the municipality of Metepec constitutes 11.45% of the total of the species registered for the State of México. The urban zone had the highest number of species (36); followed by urban parks (17) and the marshes zone (16). Due to the accelerated urbanization of the municipality, it is essential to propose urban landscapes management strategies that protect local biodiversity.
