New and recent records of moth and butterfly species (Insecta: Lepidoptera) from Praslin and Mahé Islands, Seychelles
TLDR
It is highlighted that there is some evidence of faunal exchange between the two largest islands of the granitic Seychelles and that the lepidopteran fauna of Praslin has been largely underestimated.
A short note on the Striped Policeman Butterfly, Coeliades forestan (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae) in Seychelles
TLDR
The Striped Policeman (Coeliades forestan) is the largest skipper found in Seychelles and shows a great deal of ecological adaptability, and may be found from dense rain forests through to unnatural grasslands.
Insect biodiversity of the Socotra Archipelago – underlined and counted
TLDR
The diversity of insects in Socotra is briefly commented on and compared with the nearest archipelago – the Seychelles.
Redescription of Thalassodes antithetica Herbulot, 1962, an endemic moth from Inner Seychelles (Lepidoptera: Geometridae: Geometrinae).
TLDR
The Seychelles archipelago is characterized by an exceptionally high level of endemism in certain taxa, including at least 275 endemic species of Lepidoptera, but the emerald moth specimens are lacking in extensive samples obtained by earlier collectors.
First Record of Euchloron megaera (Linnaeus, 1758) (Sphingidae) from Seychelles
TLDR
This paper presents a new hawkmoth record for Seychelles, and an updated biogeographical checklist of all known SeYchelles hawkmoths species is provided.
Euploea rogeri (Lepidoptera: Danainae), a little known Seychelles butterfly
TLDR
This brief study aims to determine how similar E. rogeri is to the other Afrotropical Euploea taxa, and suggests that rogers is more reminiscent of a nymphaline, and had it not been placed in Crastia it is doubtful that this taxon would ever have been associated with the Danainae.
Comparative biometrics of a Seychelles island Borbo gemella (Lepidoptera: Hesperiinae) metapopulation
TLDR
Although B. gemella is widespread, to date very little biometric work has been carried out on the various metapopulations of this species, which is particularly important for isolated island insect metapOPulations, as these island individuals may show distinct morphological characteristics compared with continental ones.
