Title :

Notes on the early stages of Argyrocupha malagrida maryae (Wallengren) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)

Abstract :

The final instar larva and pupa of the Cape lycaenid Argyrocupha malagrida maryae Dickson and Henning are described for the first time. Some form of symbiotic relationship is shown to exist between A. malagrida, the pugnacious ant, Anoplolepis custodiens (F. Smith, 1858), and certain aromatic buchu plants. Observations are made on the butterfly egg. Some conservation issues are discussed, such as the effect of veld fires.
