Title :

A preliminary and annotated list of Lepidoptera – butterflies (Papilionoidea) and moths (Hesperiidae, Sphingidae, Saturniidae) – recorded from the kingdom of Lesotho, southern Africa

Abstract :

As a contribution to the knowledge of the geographical distribution of Lepidoptera in southern Africa, a preliminary and annotated list of butterflies (Papilionoidae) and moths (Hesperiidae, Sphingidae, Saturniidae), collected in Lesotho from October 1993 to March 1995, is presented together with unpublished data for this region from Smits Luc G. A. (1974-1984).  In all, 75 species are recorded.  Three Papilionoidea are new to Lesotho.  This might apply also for some of the recorded Sphingidae and Saturniidae.  Many more moths collected – as yet undetermined – will be published in future.  These findings indicate the need for further studies of the butterfly- and moth-fauna of Lesotho.
