A report on observations, which indicate that the larval host plants of all the genera belonging to the subfamily Lipteninae, with the exception of the genus Cooksonia, are algae. These observations contradict the general belief that liptenine larvae feed on lichens.

Notes on the early stages of Argyrocupha malagrida maryae (Wallengren) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)


Abstract :

The final instar larva and pupa of the Cape lycaenid Argyrocupha malagrida maryae Dickson and Henning are described for the first time. Some form of symbiotic relationship is shown to exist between A. malagrida, the pugnacious ant, Anoplolepis custodiens (F. Smith, 1858), and certain aromatic buchu plants. Observations are made on the butterfly egg. Some conservation issues are discussed, such as the effect of veld fires.

Title :

A new subspecies of Charaxes xiphares (Cramer) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) from the Western Cape province, South Africa


Abstract :

A new subspecies of Charaxes xiphares (Cramer) is described from the Grootvadersbosch area of the southern Cape province. This population represents a taxonomically and geographically distinct taxon. It was previously known as form occidentalis van Son, 1953, but since this name is infrasubspecific and thus both invalid and unavailable for nomenclatural purposes, the taxon is here formally described as a new subspecies.
