Fig. 1

The Micropterix wing pattern groundplan. The forewing color pattern groundplan of Micropterix [12], plotted onto a hypothesized ancestral wing for Lepidoptera [15]. The vein labeled “pSc” is a known plesiomorphic wing vein for Amphiesmenoptera hypothesized by Schachat and Brown to influence color pattern. Abbreviations for other veins are as follows: h: humeral; Sc: subcosta; R: radius; Rs: radial sector; M: media; CuA: anterior cubitus; CuP: posterior cubitus; A: anal. Abbreviations for fasciae are as follows: b: basal; sb: subbasal; m: median; pm: postmedian; pt: preterminal; t: terminal
