New publication on Afrotropical butterflies

In the last days of 2019, our new publication on understudied Afrotropical butterflies has been published in SHILAP Revista de lepidopterológia, the pdf can be downloaded here. In this study, Rob has participated on the description of unknown females of Euriphene lomaensis, E. taigola and E. bernaudi, and an unknown male of Bebearia inepta. All these species occur in forests of Africa, Rob was involved in the collection (and discovering) of part of the unknown sexes in Liberia and Cameroon. Such smaller studies are surely important for better knowledge on biodiversity of still largely understudied tropical Africa.
