Title :

Two biogeographically significant new species of Euriphene Boisduval, 1847 from West Africa and Nigeria: E. epe Pyrcz & Larsen and E. Taigola Sáfián & Warren-Gash (Lepidoptera: Nymphalinae: Adoliadini)


Abstract :

Euriphene epe sp. nov. is apparently endemic to western Nigeria.  It has been confused with the similar E. tadema.  It joins a number of other species and subspecies showing that the western Nigerian rain forest has had its own independent evolutionary processes.  The new, and very distinctive, Euriphene taigola sp. nov. is endemic to the Liberian sub-region of Africa west of the Dahomey Gap between eastern Sierre Leone and western Sierra Leone and western Côte d’Ivoire, not extending into Ghana sub-region, being most closely related to E. niepelti from the central African area.  Confusion with any other species should not occur.  Euriphene taigola sp. nov. seems to have been missed by all collectors in the area until now and must genuinely be very rare.

Title :

Metisella orientalis Aurivillius, 1925 is a perfectly valid name that should not be replaced by M. abdeli (Krüger, 1928) (Hesperiidae: Heteropterniae)


Abstract :

The name Metisella orientalis (Aurivillius, 1925) is perfectly valid and should continue to be used.  Its replacement by Metisella abdeli (Krüger, 1928) is unwarranted: it is also a mis-spelling of the original abeli.
