Paroxetina generico gocce " ("The species of Paroxetina with the characteristics typical of a new genus named Paroxetina"). Paroxetina is Latin for "of the butterfly species," and it has a Latin or Greek acronym, as this new genus is aptly named. It was discovered in the 1920s by Dr. Charles G. Tarter when he was a researcher for the U.S. Forestry Service, a federal agency. Tarter (who is now a professor of entomology at Stanford University) and his team sampled sequenced the genomes of more than 100 species butterflies. He later published that work in the June 1987 issue of Royal Entomological Society's Journal the North American Bivalvia, in a paper titled "Paroxetina, new genus of North American butterflies." Tarter named the genus after a type of butterfly. "I thought it would be a nice way to honor the gentleman on who first collections were made for the new genus," he recalls. Tarter originally proposed the genus name in a letter to the editor of Pennsylvania State University's journal Insecta, in 1928. He then suggested further modifications, including the name "Paroxetina" and then finally decided the species-name was suitable for new genus. There has been only one other example of a butterfly or moth, Tarter says, that was found to have new species in its own genus, "and then it got re-identified, so they gave it the name just to make it clear other people." (See "Paroxetina Butterfly Discovered from a New Genus" at top.) The U.S. government-run Forest Service discovered several small populations of the new species, including an entire state, in the U.S. Northeast. forest service said the newly discovered butterflies may thrive better than the parent species, and Tarter says it is conceivable they could survive over longer periods of time, unlike the parent. "To put it as simply I can possibly put it, the parent probably doesn't survive that long," Tarter says. "These are the first new species to occur in this area since the 1830s, and to best of our knowledge, this is the first time that any kind of butterflies have had a new genus." Paroxetina genus butterflies include many butterfly species, including the black and brown Paroxetina euplo, goss, tener, orange sp. and Paroxetina tener sp., even a species with red-orange back and abdomen, the Paroxetina tener. (See "Pit of Despair" at top.) "We found some butterflies that the parents might not have actually survived for more than a few years. They haven't bred in quite a while," he says. "But the new species certainly looks like an adult specimen. It hasn't become an adult yet, but I would expect that it's going to get there." (See pictures of butterflies, moths and insects.) Though these butterflies have yet to get that point, Tarter says "if they can get the climate conditions right, they will become extremely productive and prolific." In the meantime, Tarter is working on further developing the new species, using DNA sequencing in the process. "The butterflies are still just growing into maturity," says Tarter. "They're a whole
