OCCASIONAL SUPPLEMENT NO. 2

A review of African genera of the tribe Aphnaeini (Lepidopter: Lycaenidae)


Abstract :

The following genera are synonymised: Argyrocupha Tite & Dickson, 1973 and Trimenia Tite & Dickson, 1973; Desmolycaena Trimen, 1898 and Chloroselas Butler, 1866; Apharitis Riley, 1925 and Spindasis Wallengren, 1857. Desmolycaena rogersi Riley, 1932 is assigned to a new genus, Vansomerenia gen. n. and Spindasis waggae Sharpe, 1898 assigned to a new genus, Jacksonia gen. n. The genera Poecilmitis Butler, 1899, Bowkeria Quickelberge, 1972 and Oxychaeta Tite & Dickson, 1973 are all treated as synonyms of Chrysoritis Butler, 1898. Chrysoritis williami nom. n. replaces the junior homonym Poecilmitis dicksoni W.H. Henning, 1977. Morphological information of all Aphnaeini genera is given, including illustrations of male genitalia. Information is given on larval host-plants and associated ants, including many which were previously unpublished.
