Abstract:

We herein report new records of Parides burchellanus (Westwood, 1872) in southwestern Minas Gerais state, Brazil, in areas of the upper São Francisco and Araguari river systems, including the buffer zone of the Parque Nacional da Serra da Canastra. Until recently, the only known colonies of P. burchellanus were located in the municipalities of Brumadinho, in Minas Gerais state, and Planaltina, in the Distrito Federal, some 640 km apart from each other. The implications of these new records to the conservation status of this species are discussed.
