Title :

AFRICAN BUTTERFLY NEWS - AUTUMN EDITION (March/April 2017-2)

Abstract :

Welcome to the Autumn edition of African Butterfly News!

Despite good late summer rain in several areas, it continues to be a tough season in most parts of the country. Several Skollies (Thestor species), have not been recorded at all – refer to Western Cape under Regional Roundup. On the Highveld, many species, especially Browns (Satyrinae) and Skippers (Hesperiidae), have been very scarce.The usual Brown-veined White (Belenois aurota) migration was in full swing in late January, although in my experience, the butterflies were flying in a south-easterly direction, rather than the usual north-easterly course. Did anyone else notice this? In Mpumalanga, African Migrants (Catopsilia florella) appeared to have taken over the reins from B. aurota, and were also flying southwest.

Dave Edge, LepSoc Africa’s Treasurer and co-Editor of Metamorphosis, has been instrumental in setting up the new website. The final version can be viewed at http://www.lepsocafrica.org.
