Title :

Eight new species and five new subspecies of African butterflies (Rhopalocera) - an ABRI research paper

Abstract :

This paper is primarily aimed at describing new species and subspecies identified through the rearrangement of the African Butterfly Research Institute (ABRI) collection material and in the course of research for Larsen’s book project butterflies of West Africa and their Natural History.  A number of interesting species and subspecies procured by Haydon Warren-Gash are also included.  The following species and subspecies are described – Lycaenidae: Ornipholidotos stempfferi, O. dowsetti, O. kivu, O. nancy, Iolaus (Epamera) longicauda haydoni, Iolaus (Iolaphilus) caesareus cleopatrae, Iolaus carolinae, Hypokopelates viridis parellela; Nymphalidae: Cymothoe althea bobi, Acraea oreas oboti; Hesperiidae: Celaenorrhinus nimbi, Ceratrichia lewisi, and Paracleros staudei.  Subspecies are only described when there are substantial morphological differences that have a biogeographically plausible basis.  An error in the description of the genitalia of Ornipholidotos jacksoni Stempffer, 1961 is shown to be a junior subjective synonym of E. magnimacula Rebel, 1914.  Paracleros substrigata is identified as a senior subjective synonym of P. overlaeti.
