Abstract

We described and compared the chorion morphology of 22 species in 12 genera of the subfamily Coliadinae, collected from 80 females in Mexico, Colombia, and Ecuador. Their characterization and ilustration include the main structural features of the eggs: colors, shapes, sizes, and diversity of ornamentation or reticula; possibly from the most widespread in Pieridae (polygon grid) to the derivatives Coliadinae (with the formation of axes and ribs relatively reduced number). We describe for the first time microreticulum associated with the macroreticulum.
