Based mainly on the authors’ observations, information additional to the authors’ earlier papers on the biology of Afrotropical Hesperiidae is reported, including Pyrrhochalcia iphis (Drury), Pyrrhiades aeschylus (Plotz), Coeliades chalybe chalybe (Westwood), C. ramanatek ramanatek (Boisduval), C. libeon (Druce), Tagiades insularis Mabille, Abantis bamptoni Collins & Larsen, Apallaga spp. of the galenus clade, Platylesches morigambia Larsen, P. panga Evans, P. picanini (Holland), P. rasta Evans… 
Afrotropics on the wing: phylogenomics and historical biogeography of awl and policeman skippers
TLDR
A comparative dating exercise casts doubt on the assignment of the fossil Protocoeliades kristenseni as a derived Coeliadinae and suggests, along with the biogeographic estimation, a split of Coeliads from the rest of skippers in the Palaeocene, resulting in the present‐day disjunct distribution of these butterflies.
