The genus Ampittia Moore, 1882 is accepted as a valid genus occurring in both Africa and Asia on the basis of a number ofunusual shared characters, a somewhat surprising result since we had expected to describe a new genus. The species A. kilo- mbero sp. nov. from Tanzania is described as the third African member of the genus. Andronymus fontainei sp. nov. isdescribed from the DRC as a probable endemic of the Albertine Rift. Chondrolepis ducarmei sp. nov. is a submontane speciesthat is…

TLDR
Caterpillars shown here are fairly homogeneous, with the head wider nearer the base, and lacking obvious setae on the body, but suggest that pupal characters may be useful in grouping some of the genera of Afrotropical Hesperiinae incertae sedis.
A multilocus phylogenetic framework of the tribe Aeromachini (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae), with implications for taxonomy and biogeography
TLDR
Diversification in situ and range expansion to adjacent areas have played essential roles in the evolution of Aeromachini, but founder‐event speciation and vicariance also have likely been important factors in shaping the biogeographical history of this tribe.
Taxonomy of the Afrotropical genus Melphina Evans and the description of two new genera: Melphinyet and Noctulana (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae, incertae sedis).
Two new genera of Afrotropical Hesperiidae, Melphinyet and Noctulana, are described to receive some of the species currently included in the genus Melphina Evans, to which they do not belong. The
