Title :

A review of the Afrotropical Cabera subalba group, with description of the first southern African species (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Ennominae)


Abstract :

The Cabera subalba group which is entirely Afrotropical in distribution, is reviewed and its systematic position briefly discussed.  In addition to five species known previously, the first southern African representative of the group, Cabera nevillei from the eastern highlands of Zimbabwe and Mozambique, is described.  Thysanopyga subalba Warren, 1901 is provisionally transferred to Cabera.

Title :

Meso-distribution, abundance and phenotypic variation in Hypolimnas misippus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) on Cousine Island, Seychelles


Abstract :

The meso-distribution, abundance and female phenotypic variation in Hypolimnas misippus on Cousine Island, Seychelles, were assessed.  Butterflies were confined to the disturbed coastal areas.  Rainfall affected daily abundance.  Peaks in butterfly abundance were mirrored by similar peaks in rainfall, with the rainfall peaks occurring before those of the butterfly.  The female misippus phenotype was the most common form.  Other female phenotypes present were: alcippoides, dorippoides, inaria and immima-alcippoides intermediate.

Title :

Fire and the management of habitat quality in an Australian lycaenid butterfly, Paralucia pyrodiscus lucida Crosby, the Eltham Copper


Abstract :

Paralucia pyrodiscus lucida occurs in several small, discrete urban sites in Eltham, Melbourne, each of only 1-2.5 ha, and surrounded by houses.  The monophagous caterpillars feed nocturnally on foliage of Bursaria spinosa [Pittosporaceae] and pass the days and overwintering period in subterranean nests of Notoncus ants.  After a decade of non-interventionist site management since the butterfly’s rediscovery in 1987, site aging (including canopy closure and weed invasion) has caused concern for the well-being of the Bursaria, as well as social pressures to reduce the amounts of combustible fuel on sites to alleviate risks from accidental wildfire.  A ‘hot burn’ was conducted on two sites in early April 1998.  The rationale, execution and consequences of such high risk management for a notable conservation flagship species are discussed in the broader context of using fire as a management tool for terrestrial invertebrates in southern Australia.
