The InBIO Barcoding Initiative Database: A taxonomic revision of the Western Palaearctic genus Cacochroa Heinemann, 1870 (Lepidoptera, Depressariidae)

Latest version published by CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal on Sep 10, 2020 CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources) Portugal

The dataset contains 11 records of moth specimens (Lepidoptera, Depressariidae) collected from 1988 to 2016 in seven South European and North African countries. Captured specimens were identified to species level. Captured specimens were preserved in 96% ethanol, with one exception kept in dry storage. A tissue sample, one leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

Data Records

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 11 records.

Project Data

The InBIO Barcoding Initiative aims to develop a reference collection of DNA barcoding sequences covering Portuguese invertebrate taxa. Within the project, a special focus is afforded to insects, given their relevance to food webs, ecosystems functioning, high diversity and limited number of DNA barcoding sequences of interest.

Title The InBIO Barcoding Initiative Database: A taxonomic revision of the Western Palaearctic genus Cacochroa Heinemann, 1870 (Lepidoptera, Depressariidae)
Identifier InBIO Barcoding Initiative
Funding InBIO Barcoding Initiative is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under grant agreement No 668981 and by the project PORBIOTA — Portuguese E-Infrastructure for Information and Research on Biodiversity (POCI-01-0145-FEDER-022127), supported by Operational Thematic Program for Competitiveness and Internationalization (POCI), under the PORTUGAL 2020 Partnership Agreement, through the European Regional Development Fund (FEDER).
Study Area Description Specimens were collected in five European countries, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy and Portugal and in two African countries, Morocco and Tunisia, in a total of ten different localities. Sampling was conducted from 1988 to 2016.
Design Description Specimens in this dataset were collected in field work carried out between 1988 and 2016. Specimens were captured by ten different collectors.

Sampling Methods

Sampling of specimens was done at ten different localities of seven different countries, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy and Portugal in Europe and Morocco and Tunisia in in two Africa. Sampling was conducted between 1988 to 2016. Captured specimens were preserved in 96% ethanol, with one exception kept in dry storage. Preserved specimens are deposited in two Museums: Natural History Museum, London and the Natural History Museum of Denmark, Zoological Collection, University of Copenhagen and in three research collections: Martin Corley’s, Zdenko Tokár’s and Giorgio Baldizzone’s.

Study Extent Specimens were collected in ten different localities of seven different countries, most of them bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Sampling was conducted from 1988 to 2016.
Quality Control The DNA barcoded specimen morphological identification was contrasted with the results of the Blast of the newly generated DNA barcode in BOLD Identification Engine. Prior submission to GBIF, data was checked for errors and inconsistencies with OpenRefine 3.3 (http://openrefine.org/).

Method step description:

  1. Sampling of specimens was done at ten different localities of seven different European and African countries., collected between 1988 and 2016.
  2. The captured specimen was preserved in 96% ethanol with a single exception kept in dry storage.
  3. The specimen was morphologically identified using a binocular stereoscopic microscope and resorting to available literature (Corley, 2018; Corley. & Ferreira 2019; Heinemann, 1870; Herrich-Schäffer, [1853−1855] 1847−1855; Lvovsky, 1981 and 2000; Rebel, 1901).
  4. DNA barcodes were sequenced from all specimens. For this, one leg was removed from each individual from which a 658 bp COI DNA barcode fragment was extracted, amplified and sequenced.
  5. The obtained sequences were submitted to BOLD database and the specimens’ morphological identification was contrasted with the results of the BLAST of the newly generated DNA barcode in BOLD Identification Engine.
  6. Prior submission to GBIF, data was checked for errors and inconsistencies with OpenRefine 3.3 (http://openrefine.org/).
