Title :

'Drug addicted' insects in Africa


Abstract :

Pharmacophagy and its diverse functional aspects is introduced using examples from studies on relationships between insects and pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) in Africa. Remaining open questions are outlined, emphasizing the over-riding need for natural history information from the field on ‘PA-insects’ and ‘PA-plants’.

Title :

Butterfly predation by Robber Flies (Diptera: Asilidae)


Abstract :

Predation of Lepidoptera, and in particular butterflies, is reported on after the analysis of database records held at the Natal Museum. Of 138 lepidopteran records 81 relate to butterflies.  A complete list of butterfly species known to have been attacked and fed upon by robber flies is provided.  The range and size of butterflies involved suggests that robber flies are probably capable of catching virtually any butterfly.  Attention is drawn to the need to study all aspects of butterfly ecology in the interests of establishing truly effective conservation programmes.
