Abstract

Two hundred and seventy one adult specimens representing 58 species in the subtribes Ctenuchina and Euchromiina (Arctiinae) were found at the entomological collections of ECOSUR (Southern Border College). The collections are based at three research stations: San Cristóbal de las Casas and Tapachula, located in the state of Chiapas, and Chetumal, in the state of Quintana Roo. They respectively contained 191 specimens representing 49 species, 54 specimens representing 15 species, and 26 specimens representing 6 species. The species Correbidia fana (Druce, 1900) was found within the collections and as far as we know this is a first record for Mexico.
