Title :

A new species of Leptomyrina Butler, 1898 (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae) from Mts Mecula, Namuli, Inago, Nallume and Mabu in Northern Mozambique.


Abstract :

This paper describes a new species of Leptomyrina from five mountains in northern Mozambique – Mts Mecula, Namuli, Inago, Nallume and Mabu. Specimens were collected over the course of several years between 2007 and 2019 through a series of biodiversity surveys of the mountains of northern Mozambique. This species differs from others in the group based on the rounded and tail-less shape of the hindwing, and the dusting of powder blue scales on the upper side of the males. The genitalia also show significant differences to others in the group. It is found towards the summits of these mountains at elevations generally over 1000m and feeds on Crassulaceae.

Additional notes on butterflies of the Cape Verde Islands


Abstract :

Following the authors’ previously published research on Cape Verde butterflies based on fieldwork conducted in 2013, this paper presents additional data on Cape Verde butterflies as a result of further visits to the islands between 16th June and 17th July 2017, and again from 10th November to 14th December 2017. It reports three new island records (São Nicolau, Santiago and Maio) for Euchrysops osiris (Höpffer, 1855), and one new record (São Nicolau) for Junonia oenone (Linnaeus, 1758), discovered for the first time on the Cape Verde Islands (Santiago) by the authors in 2013. Occurrence of Colias croceus (Geoffroy, 1785) on Sal is discussed and a number of records for the island of Raso in the years 2015-2017 made by the Cambridge University Raso Lark survey team are presented. An updated table of Cape Verde butterflies is also presented, together with an outline map of the islands.
