Abstract

Butterfly fauna (Lepidoptera: Rhopalocera) in and around Hirpora Wildlife Sanctuary, Shopian Kashmir, J&K UT, India Muzafar RIYAZ 1 ORCID: 0000-0001-9372-681X 1Division of Taxonomy & Biodiversity, Entomology Research Institute, Loyola College, Chennai, 600034, Tamil Nadu, India Abstract Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Rhopalocera) of Hirpora Wildlife Sanctuary and its adjoining areas are presented. The sanctuary is situated at the foothills of Pir Panjal mountain range (Inner Himalayas) in the southern escarpment of Kashmir’s Shopian District. The study was carried out from April to October 2021. A total number of 25 species from five families were recorded. The highest number of species were recorded from the family Nymphalidae followed by the family Pieridae. Additional field surveys and explorations in the upper reaches of the sanctuary will add further species to the butterfly inventory of the region.

Abstract

Hirpora Doğal Hayatı Koruma Alanı ve ve bölge çevresindeki farklı habitatlardan toplanan kelebek örnekleri (Lepidoptera: Rhopalocera) sunulmuştur. Kutsal alan, Keşmir'in Shopian Bölgesi'nin güney yamacındaki Pir Panjal sıradağlarının (İç Himalayalar) eteklerinde yer almaktadır. Çalışma Nisan-Ekim 2021 arasında gerçekleştirildi. Beş familyadan toplam 25 tür kaydedildi. En fazla tür Nymphalidae familyasından kaydedilmiştir, bunu Pieridae familyası izlemiştir. Çevresinde özellikle kuzey kısmında yürütülecek yeni çalışmalar ile bölge için yeni tür kayıtlarının ve yeni türlerin tespit edilebileceği öngörülmektedir.
