Lamas genera

Achlyodes is a genus of skippers. The members (species) are found in the Nearctic and Neotropical ecozones.[1]

The genus has only few species:

Achlyodes busirus (Cramer, [1779])
Achlyodes pallida (R. Felder, 1869)
Achlyodes minna Evans, 1953
Achlyodes mithridates (Fabricius, 1793)
Achlyodes munroei Bell, 1956

Three closely related species A. minna, A. mithridates and A. munroei are sometimes considered to belong to Eantis.[2]
