Title :

Junonia agnesberenyiae sp. nov. (Lepidoptera, Nymphalidae, Nymphalinae) from the Nimba Mountains (Guinea), West Africa

Abstract :

A new taxon of Junonia near ansorgei was collected by the author during a butterfly survey in the Nimba Mountains, Guinea in 2017. Careful comparison with a series of J. ansorgei from various localities throughout its distribution, including examination of the COI gene of both taxa revealed that the two are not conspecific and the new species is described as Junonia agnesberenyiae sp.nov. J. agnesberenyiae inhabits the montane slope and gallery forests of the Nimba Mountains above 1500 m (asl.) and is probably endemic to the montane zone of the Guinea Highlands and thus the new species is of conservation concern.
