      1. Introduction. The family Hesperiidae (Lepidoptera), or skippers, is a species-rich butterfly family that accounts for one fifth of the butterfly species in the world [].Traditionally, the group had been investigated within the morphology-based taxonomic framework established by Evans [,, ], where three geographic regions were treated separately and infra-subfamily groups were called genus.

    The unusual occurrence of a tetraploid cultivated species and a closely related, predominantly octoploid species has caused some interesting speculation, Grant, unaware of the tetraploid race of C argentea, postulated — on the basis of cytological and morphological observations on C argentea and cockscomb, F, and F 2 hybrids between them, and. This chapter is aimed at providing some basic information on a variety of avian species commonly presented in clinical practice. This information will encourage the general practice veterinary surgeon to approach and deal with these species with confidence.

    A third range-restricted species, near-endemic to the Waterberg is Barber's Acraea Acraea barberi. To increase what is known about the butterflies of the Waterberg please consider submitting any geo-referenced, dated photograph of any butterfly taken here to the Atlas of African Lepidoptera. Naturalized species are alien species, introduced by humans that are now reproducing naturally. Humans are the driving force allowing the introduction of potentially invasive species. The good news is that only a very small percentage of introduced plants ever become problematic invasive species.

Each ToL branch page provides a synopsis of the characteristics of a group of organisms representing a branch of the Tree of Life.

The major distinction between a branch and a leaf of the Tree of Life is that each branch can be further subdivided into descendent branches, that is, subgroups representing distinct genetic lineages.

Back in July I took a family holiday in the Hluhluwe area. We stayed at Malala Lodge which was quiet, comfortable, (though a queen bed rather than a double would have been nice), and had a nice selection of birds, animals & butterflies present.

I spent a few hours surveying the area for butterflies & finished with 25 species positively identified species (list below). The first known reference to butterflies obtained in Angola is by Latreille and Godart (), who reported the presence of Colotis euippe (Linnaeus, ) and described Acraea parrhasia the decade between andDruce reported about 90 species from Angola for the first time, a number of these being descriptions of species new to science.

A day to bring awareness to the importance of protecting endangered species. The conservation and protection of all species ensures that we maintain a healthy and functional ecosystem.

Factors such as loss of habitat, pollution, invasive species and illegal hunting can threaten the existence of an entire species.

The majority of species in ecosystems are rare, but the ecosystem consequences of losing rare species are poorly known. To understand how rare species may influence ecosystem functioning, this study quantifies the contribution of species based on their relative level of rarity to community functional diversity using a trait‐based approach.
