Title :

Research and conservation plan for the Waterberg Copper (Erikssonia edgei Gardiner & Terblanche, 2010) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) at the Bateleur Nature Reserve

Abstract :

Erikssonia edgei Gardiner & Terblanche no longer occurs at its type locality on the Tilodi Game Farm in the Waterberg, despite the presence of its known host plant and seemingly favourable veld conditions. New localities for E. edgei have been discovered at the Bateleur Nature Reserve (BNR) 50 km south by Mark and Tildie Williams, and this provides a valuable opportunity to study and protect this critically endangered butterfly. An interim conservation plan has been established jointly by the Lepidopterists’ Society of Africa (LepSoc) and the owner of BNR. The results obtained from field work completed during 2013-2014 are presented and ongoing research projects are outlined.
