Abstract

This study is the first to determine which species of Schinia occur in Kansas and to describe the geographical and temporal distribution of each. Ultraviolet (UV) light-traps were operated for 140 nights, in 68 counties, during three seasons (1989-1991). Additionally, specimens were collected at night as they visited electric lights and during the day as they visited food plants. These specimens and those present in several public and private collections allowed examination of 1491 individuals of 38 species. The distributional maps and graphs of flight periods (temporal distribution) which resulted provide the basis for more comprehensive studies of the genus.
