Title :

A new species of Lepidochrysops Hedicke, 1923 (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) from the Northern Cape, South Africa

Abstract :

The genus Lepidochrysops Hedicke (Lycaenidae) is briefly discussed and a new species in the L. methymna group, Lepidochrysops frederikeae sp. nov. from the Northern Cape, is described and figured. The habitat, a small inselberg (at an altitude of over 1200 m) of the Fynbos vegetation unit Roggeveld Shale Renosterveld surrounded by Succulent Karoo vegetation units, is discussed in relation to other apparently new animal and plant taxa.
