Title :

Biological notes on the eggar moth Schausinna regia (Grünberg) (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae)

Abstract :

The taxonomy, distribution and immature stages of the eggar moth Schausinna regia (Grünberg) are briefly discussed. This moth has restricted distribution in south-western Africa, but related species occur in West and East Africa and in Madagascar. The taxonomic status and phylogeny of the species of Schausinna are poorly understood, and a revisionary study of the genus is needed. S. regia has two apparently distinct populations and colour forms in Namibia: the pale southern one is illustrated for the first time. The larva, pupa and cocoon of S. regia are also illustrated in colour for the first time, and the larval foodplants identified. A short account of the life cycle of S. regia is given, and its larval and pupal defences are briefly commented on.
