Title :

Notes on the Afrotropical species of Graphium Scopoli (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae)

Abstract :

Species-groups for the 41 currently accepted species of afrotropical Graphium Scopoli are reassessed, with nine groups recognized.  These are the antheus, polistratus, porthaon, policenes, angolanus, tynderaeus, leonidas, philonoe and adamastor groups.  G. abri Smith & Vane-Wright and G. aurivilliusi (Seeldrayers) are suggested to be of hybrid origin.  Records of G. policenes (Cramer), G. schaffgotschi (Niepelt) and G. taboranus (Oberth?r) from north-western Zimbabwe are suggested to be errors of Zambia.  Records of G. taboranus from southern Malawi, of G. biokoensis from western and southern Democratic Republic of Congo and the Burundi/Tanzania border, and of G. schubotzi (Schultze) and G. olbrechtsi Berger from southern and central Democratic Republic of Congo, respectively, are also suggested to be errors.  Additional locality records are provided from material in the Natural History Museum of Zimbabwe, Bulawayo.
