Title :

Mauritius butterflies revisited: short faunal survey reveals a new record for the Mascarene fauna – Leptotes jeanneli (Stempffer)

Abstract :

Results of a short survey on the island of Mauritius are presented. A total of 30 species are listed and commented upon, with special reference to the recently published similar study by Lawrence (2016). Hypolimnas anthedon drucei (Butler), considered previously as migratory on Mauritius, is reported as forming a well-established population in the SW of the island. Cyclyrius mandersi (Druce), considered as possibly extinct, is found on the eastern coast. Furthermore, a new record for the island is reported, Leptotes jeanneli (Stempffer). Adults and male genitalia are illustrated and compared to L. pirithous (Linnaeus) showing that the two species are rather easily identified by their external morphology.
