Title :

Mode and tempo in the evolution of mimicry in African butterflies - a research programme

Abstract :

The genus Amauris is a driving force in the evolution of mimicry within African butterflies.  Amongst the many mimics of Amauris, Papilio dardanus is a celebrated and much-studied species, but controversy continues regarding the sequence of evolutionary events that have produced this remarkable insect.  Even less well understood is the possible relationship between mimicry and the evolution of new species.  A research programme using molecular biology to explore these issues is outlined.  Ways in which African-based lepidopterists might contribute to this work are briefly noted.
