Brief Summary

Read full entry



Big, beautiful Charaxes butterflies - the most diverse genus in Africa? Or maybe the most oversplit. Ackery et al. (1995) state, "No group of African butterflies arouses stronger emotions than Charaxes." Gaining an understanding of their phylogenetic relationships will add a new chapter to their convoluted literature.

The bulk of the list is Afrotropical taxa. The species listed after C. zoolina are the ones from India, Indomalaya and the indonesian archipelago to New Guinea.
