Title :

Taxonomic issues between Chrysoritis lyndseyae (S.F. Henning) stat. rev. and C. thysbe bamptoni (Dickson) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae: Aphnaeini)


Abstract :

Chrysoritis lyndseyae (S.F. Henning, 1979) is here reinstated as a valid species (stat. rev.). Previously synonymized with C. thysbe bamptoni (Dickson, 1976) by Heath (2001), it is shown to differ from that taxon by the wing phenotype of the majority of specimens, also by virtue of its male patrolling behaviour. These differences are further supported by provisional molecular evidence. Both of these taxa as well as C. perseus (W.H. Henning, 1977) occur together in some localities and they are now known to share the same foodplants and ant-associate. Most specimens are readily identified as one of these three, but some material cannot be separated on morphological grounds with certainty. No difference in UV reflectance has been detected between the three species; this together with the other morphological similarities suggests that mate recognition between sympatric populations might rely heavily on pheromones. Typical and intermediate specimens of lyndseyae and bamptoni are illustrated; also juvenile stages of the former.

Title :

The geometrid moth Afrophyla vethi (Snellen, 1886) transferred from Oenochrominae to Sterrhinae (Lepidoptera: Geometridae)


Abstract :

The geometrid moth Afrophyla vethi (Snellen, 1886), which is found in sub-Saharan Africa, Yemen and Madagascar, has historically been assigned to the subfamily Oenochrominae. This association was questioned in a recent molecular study, where it was placed in the subfamily Sterrhinae. We provide morphological evidence, particularly from the male and female genitalia and tympanal organs, that is congruent with the molecular data, and reclassify A. vethi in the subfamily Sterrhinae, tribe Rhodometrini (new combination). Adults and genitalia of both sexes of A. vethi are illustrated for the first time, and these are compared to the similar species Rhodometra sacraria (Linnaeus, 1767) and Casilda antophilaria (Hübner, [1813]).
