AFRICAN BUTTERFLY NEWS

March/April 2019


Abstract :

Welcome to May’s newsletter!

May’s edition of African Butterfly News is being circulated a bit earlier than usual, as I will be awayfrom 25 April to 15 May. If anyone has any photographs or trip reports from late April, please sendthem to me (jchdobson@gmail.com) and they will be included in July’s newsletter.

While butterfly numbers do seem a little better than last year (refer to BUTTERFLY INDEX), it’sbeen another tough season with no sightings whatsoever of two of our Critically Endangered species, the Waterberg Copper (Erikssonia edgei) and Brenton Blue (Orachrysops niobe). I have asense that our night-flying lepidoptera are faring even worse, possibly a result of light pollution, inaddition to the other damaging influences.On a more positive note, there have been some good records from KwaZulu-Natal in recentmonths, such as the Deceptive Diadem (Hypolimnas deceptor deceptor) and Bicoloured ParadiseSkipper (Abantis bicolor) from Krantzkloof, Millar’s Buff (Deloneura millari millari) from Fawn Leasand Zulu Buff (Teriomima zuluana) from Manguzi. In addition, a new locality for Atlantic YellowSkolly (Thestor dicksoni malagas) was found at Jacob’s Bay (refer to REGIONAL ROUNDUP).

Abstract :

LATEST NEWS

Welcome to the second newsletter of 2019!

The drought – at least on the Highveld – appears to be over; the Brown-veined White (Belenois aurota) migration has passed its peak, but is still going strong. Unfortunately, the rain is too late for our rare local butterflies, such as the Highveld Blue (Lepidochrysops praeterita), but here’s hoping that there will be lots of late-summer butterflies in the months ahead. Please support the newsletter and forward photographs, trip reports or comments to jchdobson@gmail.com
