Abstract: This paper describes the immature stages of Pagyris cymothoe cymothoe (Hewitson, 1855) based on samples collected in Venezuela and Colombia in 1991 and 2013, respectively. Eggs were collected on Brugmansia candida Pers. and Brugmansia suaveolens (Willd.), and reared on B. suaveolens under laboratory conditions at 25 +/- 2 degrees C. Larvae are gregarious, passing through five instars; the duration of life cycle (from egg to adult) lasted about 28 days. Detailed morphology of the egg and first instar chaetotaxy is presented. This new life history is compared with the life histories of Pagyris ulla (Hewitson, 1857) and of the sister genus Placidina d'Almeida, 1928.
