Title :

A new subspecies of Papilio (Princeps) pelodurus Butler, 1896 (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae: Papilioninae) from several mountains in northern Mozambique

Abstract :

A new subspecies of Papilio pelodurus Butler, 1896 is described that was collected from two mountains in Zambezia Province, northern Mozambique, over the course of several years, between 2007 and 2012. The specimens collected show distinct differences from the nominotypical species from Malawi and provide sufficient morphological evidence to merit the description of a new subspecies. The specimens collected are also the first records of this species from Mozambique and therefore add another species to the country list.
