Title :

Meso-distribution, abundance and phenotypic variation in Hypolimnas misippus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) on Cousine Island, Seychelles

Abstract :

The meso-distribution, abundance and female phenotypic variation in Hypolimnas misippus on Cousine Island, Seychelles, were assessed.  Butterflies were confined to the disturbed coastal areas.  Rainfall affected daily abundance.  Peaks in butterfly abundance were mirrored by similar peaks in rainfall, with the rainfall peaks occurring before those of the butterfly.  The female misippus phenotype was the most common form.  Other female phenotypes present were: alcippoides, dorippoides, inaria and immima-alcippoides intermediate.
