Hi there,

Could you please help to identify some of these butterflies from southern Zambia.
Only one I am sure of is the Garden Inspector. Some look very similar to Hong Kong ones...

Thanks a lot

And if you could also identify the following south african lycaenidae from the Kirstenbosch Gardens in Capetown... Much appreciated!

The Garden inspector is actually quite an interesting butterfly as it has a summer form and a winter form (this picture is of the winter form). Its latin name is Precis archesia...

Scientific names as follows (following 2nd edition of Pennington's Butterflies of Southern Africa, Pringle, Henning & Ball, eds. 1994. Struik Winchester, Cape Town [ISBN 0-947430-46-6])

agree on Precis archesia
Z1 = Belenois gidica
Z2 = Colotis sp., probably eupompe (=evippe)
Z3 = Graphium loenidas
Z4 = Eurema sp.
Z5 = Geometridae, Sterrhinae; genus & sp. indet.
Z6 = Hamanumida daedalus
Z7 = Precis (Junonia) hierta
Cape Town Lycaenid = Cacyreus lingeus

cheers,  Roger.
