Title :

Papilio vanessa Fabricius, 1793, nomen oblitum, is a synonym of Liptena septistrigata (Bethune-Baker, 1903), nomen protectum (Papilionoidea: Lycaenidae: Poritiinae).


Abstract :

The nominal taxon Papilio vanessa Fabricius, 1793, for long thought to be an unrecognised species of Riodinidae from the Americas, is shown to be a synonym of the West African lycaenid butterfly Liptena septistrigata (Bethune-Baker, 1903), syn. nov. Papilio vanessa is however a nomen oblitum, as it has not been applied to any recognised taxon since 1889. Thus Liptena septistrigata has priority so long as this subjective synonymy is considered valid and, within this context, L. septistrigata should be treated as a nomen protectum.

Description of a new endemic genus of the Namib Desert and adjacent biomes in Namibia (Tineoidea: Tineidae: Hapsiferinae)


Abstract :

The genus Rooiklipia gen. nov. is established to accommodate four species, collected in the Namibia: R. michaelmeyi spec. nov., R. neufferae spec. nov., and R. vanbiljoni spec. nov. Described from the Namib, R. mirabib (Mey, 2011) comb. nov. is the type species and is transferred from Rhodobates Ragonot, 1895 to the new taxon. The male and female genitalia, wing venation, adult moths, and distribution are illustrated. The species can be distinguished by small but constant differences in the male and female genitalia. The validity of the species is supported by molecular studies. Rooiklipia gen. nov. is placed in Hapsiferinae.

Title :

Taxonomic notes on Liptena eketi Bethune-Baker, 1926 and related species (Papilionoidea: Lycaenidae: Poritiinae)


Abstract :

Examination of male genitalia confirms that L. seyboui Warren-Gash & Larsen, 2003 is specifically distinct from L. eketi Bethune-Baker, 1926 and shows that L. kiellandi Congdon & Collins, 1998, whilst close to L. eketi, is also distinct. The subspecies kakamegae Congdon & Collins, 1998 of L. kiellandi is synonymised with the nominate subspecies, and the distribution of the different taxa is clarified.
