Title :

Further aspects on the life history of the myrmecophilous species Chrysoritis dicksoni (Gabriel) (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)


Abstract :

Further information is given on the life history of Chrysoritis dicksoni  (Gabriel), with an illustrated description of the final instar caterpillar and its ecology, indicating that it probably subsists entirely upon regurgitations obtained from the ant Crematogaster peringueyi Emery and that the presence of scale insects (Homoptera) appears to be essential to the caterpillar through the tropic activities of the ant.  It is confirmed that the final instar has a functional DNO as well as TOs; also that it is capable of emitting drumming sounds.
